Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Danuel House tallied 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists to lead the Houston Cougars past the South Florida Bulls, 78-69, in American Athletic Conference action at Hofheinz Pavilion.

L.J. Rose added 16 points on 4-of-5 shooting from beyond the arc for Houston (16-14, 8-9 AAC), winners of four straight. Jherrod Stiggers came off the bench to net 15 for the hosts.

For USF (12-18, 3-14), which extended its season-long losing streak to seven games, Victor Rudd poured in a game-high 25 points, while Martino Brock had 19 points in a reserve role.
