NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Corey Davis Jr. made eight 3-pointers and scored 26 points to help No. 9 Houston beat Tulane 85-50 on Sunday for its 10th consecutive victory.
Davis and Armoni Brooks led the way as Houston went 17 for 34 from beyond the arc. Brooks made six 3s on his way to 24 points.
The Cougars (25-1, 12-1 American Athletic) opened the game with a 22-5 run. The Green Wave twice got within eight points early in the second half, but Davis made three 3-pointers during a 17-0 run that put the Cougars in command with a 58-33 lead.
