ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Kelvin Lewis scored 28 points and Houston handed No. 25 Oklahoma its third straight loss, 100-93 on Thursday night in the second day of pool play at the Great Alaska Shootout.

Aubrey Coleman added 27 points for the Cougars (2-1), who erased an 18-point deficit in the first half and trailed 52-47 at the break.

The teams were tied at 71 with about 10 minutes left before Houston went on a 19-4 run. Oklahoma (2-3) never got closer than six in the final minutes.

The Sooners were led by Willie Warren's 25 points. Steven Pledger scored 20 of his 23 in the first half.
