Houston still just has the one loss at Temple in the third game of conference play. The Coogs have won six straight since then, the last one coming a week ago, at home, over the Owls.
The defensive is still dominant, second in the country in terms of opponent field goal percentage (.363) and first in the American Athletic (.370). A good assist-to-turnover ratio to boot (329 to 256) has Houston outscoring opponents by 15 points per game, on average.
Both Cincinnati and Houston are 8–1 with their first date set for Sunday in Houston. The Bearcats will play in Memphis on the same night as this game.
Central Florida Knights
Just off the pace is Central Florida with its 6–2 mark, having lost at Memphis and Wichita State. The Knights have defeated Temple and beat Connecticut twice but they haven’t seen Houston, nor Cincinnati yet.
BJ Taylor, the fifth-year senior guard, is averaging nearly 17 points per game on his typical 40 percent from the field. Beware, though, he shoots 37 percent from three and can make difficult shots. If he gets easy ones early, he’ll make it a long night on any defense in the conference. Plus, he gets three assists for every two turnovers.
Taylor is backed up by a slightly more efficient scorer in the backcourt by the name of Aubrey Dawkins, who gets 15 per game.
The 7’6″, 310 lb. center from Senegal, Tacko Fall, shoots 75.7 percent from the field and just 28.1 percent from the line to get his near-10 points per game.
