HOUSTON, Texas – Former Tennessee State men’s basketball standout Robert Covington has made the Houston Rockets’ 15-man roster.

Covington signed a guaranteed free agent contract with the club immediately following the NBA Draft and played in five preseason games where he averaged 3.2 points and 1.8 rebounds.

Aiding the Bellwood, Ill. products chances at making the final cut was his performance in last Friday’s contest in which he scored eight points and four boards in 15 minutes.

Covington averaged a team-best 17 points per contest last year and added eight boards per game. He finished his TSU career with 1,749 points, which places him seventh in school history.

The Rockets will start the 2013-14 campaign tonight with a home game against the Charlotte Bobcats.
