With two wins and a lot of help, Houston can still be the champion of the American Athletic Conference this season. The Cougars are two games back of Cincinnati and one back of Wichita State but those two face each other in the final game of the regular season.
Houston is more than likely to play its way into the NCAA Tournament one way or another and if it does get there, it’s going to be dangerous.
Not a lot of people know much about the Cougars but this is a team led by juniors and seniors that can really shoot the ball.
Rob Gray is a prolific scorer who has taken on less of the scoring load in his senior season because there are options, most notably Corey Davis Jr. and Armoni Brooks who both shoot at or close to 45 percent from three-point range.
The team shoots close to 40. It’s beaten both Cincinnati and Wichita State in the conference and absolutely demolished Arkansas in the non-conference, plus a double-digit win over Providence. Rest assured, Houston can play.
For a while, SMU looked like the fourth-best team in the conference behind the three likely tournament teams. A couple of weeks ago, it looked dreadful.
Now, it looks somewhere in between. The Mustangs did lose over the weekend by six at Wichita State, which isn’t a bad loss. That said, it’s still the Mustangs sixth loss in the last seven games.
They at least looked like they had gotten things together over the weekend, after their first win in three weeks. I’m banking on this game being more of a toss-up than people will give it credit for.
