NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The University of Oklahoma men’s basketball team has added University of Houston transfer TaShawn Thomas to its roster.

Coach Lon Kruger announced the addition Tuesday.

Thomas, the Cougars’ leading scorer and rebounder last season, will have one season of eligibility left at OU.

Thomas earned second-team All-American Athletic Conference honors during the past season when he averaged team highs of 15.4 points and 8.1 rebounds in 31.6 minutes a contest.

He also led the team with his .591 field goal percentage and 2.7 blocked shots per game.

A starter in all 96 games at Houston, Thomas averaged double figures in scoring all three seasons and is one of only seven players in UH history to record at least 1,300 points and 800 rebounds.
