Houston wins 20th straight at home before opening new arena

HOUSTON (AP) Corey Davis Jr. scored 23 points, Armoni Brooks grabbed 12 rebounds and Houston beat Texas Rio Grande Valley 58-53 on Wednesday night.

It was Houston's final home game at Texas Southern's H&PE Arena before opening the new Fertitta Center on Saturday with a sold-out game against No. 18 Oregon.

The Cougars played at Texas Southern's gym for the entire 2017-18 season, reeling off 20 straight home wins. The streak is tied for the second-longest active home streak in the nation.

Brison Gresham added 12 points, eight rebounds and four blocks for Houston (5-0).

Jordan Jackson had 12 points, nine rebounds, three steals and two blocks for UT Rio Grande Valley (5-4). The Vaqueros shot just 34 percent, including 3 of 24 from 3-point range.
