Lucas Kelley scored a career-high 22 points to lead the Houston Tigers to a season-opening 33-31 victory Tuesday against Cuba

HHS (1-0) was victorious with strong defense and a deliberate pace – the style first-year coach Rod Gorman said the Tigers needed to win with.

Kelley hit three 3-pointers as the lone HHS player in double figures. Ty McCloud scored five points – all in the fourth quarter – and freshman Isaiah Buse had four.

Houston led 8-5 after the opening quarter and by five at the half. The Tigers’ lead was three entering the fourth quarter.

Houston (1-0) outscored Cuba 19-4 in the second quarter to break a 15-all tie. The Tigers had a 51-25 advantage entering the fourth.

Moore hit three of the Tigers’ five triples. Gavin Alston and Buse also connected from downtown. Nine different players scored.
