Houston forward and former 2012 All-Conference USA Defensive Team member, TyShawn Thomas, posted an impressive stat line to lead the Cougars to a victory in Tampa Bay. The 6-foot-8 forward registered 13 points, six blocks, six steals, five assists, and four rebounds on 6-of-10 shooting. Thomas currently leads the American Athletic Conference in blocks.
For the Bulls, they shot just 37 percent (20-54) from the field for the game, including 52 percent (13-25) from the free throw line, and 23 percent (5-21) from downtown.
All-Conference point guard Anthony Collins (knee) was inactive one again for the Bulls this afternoon, and the Bulls certainly need him as soon as possible. Guard Martino Brock led the Bulls with 11 points, four rebounds and two assists, while center John Egbunu pitched in with a near double-double with nine points and nine rebounds.
The Bulls will look to pick up their first American Athletic Conference win on Thursday when they visit the Temple Owls (5-7, 0-2) at 7:00 p.m. on ESPNU.
