HOUSTON -- Joseph Young scored 25 points, leading five players in double figures, to give Houston a 96-71 victory over Texas Pan-American on Thursday night.
Young was 7 of 9 from 3-point range. Danuel House and J.J. Thompson scored 12 points apiece. TaShawn Thomas and Jherrod Stiggers added 10 apiece. Leon Gibson had eight points and a team-high eight rebounds. Thompson also had six assists for the Cougars (11-2).
Houston led 42-36 at halftime and never trailed in the second half. Houston shot 54.8 percent from the field for the game, while the Broncos shot 50.9 percent. Houston won the rebound battle 37-24.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
