In many respects this year it's been a struggle to win games but UT, to their credit, went on the road and beat another struggling team, but in moderately convincing fashion. They just kept making baskets all game and finished with a 59% shooting percentage. Rian Perason had an efficient 22 points on 12 shots, adding nine rebounds. Dominique Buckkley gave them 13 points, four assists and four rebounds.
A loooong respite awaits the Rockets, then a tough test on December 29 at home against one-loss UIC.
