TUCSON, Ariz. -- Jordan Hill scored 30 points, including a three-point play in overtime, as Arizona rallied for a 96-90 win over Houston on Saturday.
The Wildcats, motivated after Houston's Aubrey Coleman was ejected for a flagrant foul after stepping on Chase Budinger's face following a charge call with 9:51 left in the second half, scored eight points in the final 1:30 to force overtime at 88-all.
Hill scored the only basket in overtime when he connected on a three-point play with 3:55 remaining for a 91-88 lead.
Kyle Fogg sealed the win for Arizona (12-8) by making two free throws with 7.4 seconds left.
Nic Wise, besides tying the game at 88 with a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation, finished with 23 points for the Wildcats while Budinger had 15.
The Cougars had a 74-63 lead following a DaShaun Williams lay-up with 6:35 left.
That's when Arizona made its big push with Zane Johnson chipping in with a 3-pointer and Hill scoring inside before Wise hit his second of two late 3-pointers in the final seconds.
Lewis scored 12 of Houston's initial 18 points to open the second half, including a mid-range jumper for a 56-46 lead with 13:57 left.
The Cougars went on a 14-2 run in the final six minutes to take a 38-33 halftime lead.
