HOUSTON -- TaShawn Thomas had 25 points and 14 rebounds and Houston surpassed 100 points for the second time this season, defeating Marshall 103-76 on Saturday.
Houston shot 60 percent from the field and hit 8 of 15 3-point attempts while snapping a three-game losing streak.
Houston scored the final nine points of the first half to take a 44-28 lead and increased that margin to as many as 32 points in the second half.
With a trio a top recruits from Philadelphia, the Penn State basketball program is primed to finally turn a corner.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
