Radio: KJR (950 AM)
Records: Houston 8-3, UW 9-1
Bottom line: The Cougars, members of Conference USA, have won four in a row, including a 81-72 victory over Louisiana State on Tuesday. Houston also defeated Missouri last month in the Guardians Classic tournament in Kansas City, Mo. … The Huskies have matched their best start since the 1990-91 season. The last team to have a better start was the 1975-76 team that opened 14-0. … UW’s Hakeem Rollins (knee surgery) will miss the game, but Huskies guard Brandon Roy (knee) should be able to participate.
Next: UW hosts California in both teams’ Pac-10 opener on Dec. 31 at 1:30 p.m.
