Senior guard Aubrey Coleman equaled his nation-leading 25-point scoring average and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Houston to a 74-55 Conference USA victory over East Carolina Saturday night in Greenville.

A silver lining in the defeat for East Carolina (6-12, 0-4 C-USA) was the establishment of a new school career record for assists by Brock Young. The junior guard broke Travis Holcomb-Faye's mark of 413 in the first half and finished the game with a career total of 416. Holcomb-Faye played for ECU from 2000-03.

Sophomore forward DaQuan Joyner and freshman guard Erin Straughn each recorded double-doubles for the Pirates. Joyner had 12 points and pulled down 13 rebounds while Straughn scored 11 points and had 12 rebounds.

Senior guard Kelvin Lewis scored 13 points, junior forward Maurice McNeil had 11 points and 15 rebounds and junior guard Zamal Nixon added 10 points to help the Cougars (10-7, 3-1 C-USA) lead from start to finish to post their second straight win and third in their last four games.

Houston led at the half 30-22.

The loss was fourth in a row and sixth in the last seven games for the depleted Pirates. For the second straight game, East Carolina was without the services of sophomore forward Darrius Morrow and freshman guard Wakefield Ellison, who were suspended indefinitely by ECU coach Mack McCarthy on Wednesday for a violation of team rules.

East Carolina has a rare mid-January break before hitting the road for a pair of back-to-back league games next weekend. The Pirates face Southern Miss on Saturday (5 p.m.) in Hattiesburg and Tulane the next day in New Orleans (3 p.m.)
