    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- Kelvin Lewis converted two free throws after a technical foul with 0.2 seconds remaining, lifting Houston over Western Kentucky 74-72 on Tuesday night.

    The game was tied at 72 in the closing seconds when Houston's Aubrey Coleman missed what would have been the go-ahead jumper. But Adam Brown got the rebound for Houston and was fouled by Western Kentucky's Sergio Kerusch with less than a second remaining.

    Western Kentucky coach Ken McDonald was called for a technical foul, and Lewis made both technical foul shots. Brown then stepped to the line for Houston and missed the front end of his 1-and-1, and Western Kentucky couldn't get the final shot off.

    Coleman, who came into the game as the nation's leading scorer, had 29 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Cougars (12-11) and went 13-for-27 from the field.

    Kerusch scored 19 points for the Hilltoppers (13-12).
