Houston's TaShawn Thomas led a dominate performance in the paint with 19 points and 12 rebounds as the Cougars defeated TCU 54-48 on Tuesday night. The Cougars (6-2) nearly doubled up on the Horned Frogs (6-3) in the paint, outscoring TCU 32-18. The Horned Frogs kept the nation's 19th-best scoring offense in check, but they couldn't keep up.

Houston, which came into the game averaging 81.0 points per game - 19th-best in the NCAA - was held to its season low in points. But TCU shot just 33.3 percent, including 5 of 18 from 3-point range. Joseph Young added 12 points for the Cougars, snapping a two-game losing streak. Kyan Anderson led TCU with 20 points. Adrick McKinney scored 10 and had 20 rebounds.
