The UH men's basketball team had a chance to do something no other Cougar team had ever done Saturday afternoon: Win a Conference USA road game. 

It has now extended its conference road woes to 20 straight losses.

It was up big in the first half and finished the half with a 43-34 lead. The Coogs ended the game with a five-point loss to the Tulane Green Wave in New Orleans 89-84.

UH (7-11 overall, 2-5 in C-USA) was led by Gee Gervin, who had 26 points. He also tallied six assists and four rebounds. He hit 4-of-9 from behind the arc. Gervin leads the conference in scoring.

For Tulane, Byron Mouton had 21 points and four rebounds.

William Stringfellow continued his impressive display with 17 points and five rebounds. He also had no turnovers in 27 minutes. 

The same could not be said for Kenny Younger, who had six. Younger, however, did have 19 points and 10 rebounds. 

The Cougars' next game is against South Florida at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 30. at Hofheinz Pavilion.
