HOUSTON (AP) — Damyean Dotson scored 20 points and Houston needed a second-half rally to put away Division II Angelo State, 84-72 on Wednesday night.
The Rams did not trail in the first half and built a 39-32 advantage at halftime, leading by as many as 12 points.
Danrad Knowles gave Houston the lead with a pair of free throws less than two minutes into the second half and the Cougars never trailed again.
Rob Gray Jr. finished with 15 points and Galen Robinson added 11 for Houston, which shot 50 percent from the floor (25 of 50) and equally well from distance (8 of 16). The Cougars (2-0) were 26 of 37 from the free-throw line.
Angelo State got 18 points from Lorenzo Dillard. Prince Foster and Quay King added 14 and 13 points, respectively.
