It’s a big AAC showdown on Wednesday night.
The UCONN Huskies travel south to Houston to take on the Cougars.
This is the first match up between the two teams. Houston won two of three match ups last year.
The Connecticut Huskies are getting hot at the right time again this season, and people are wondering if it will be enough to make another push into the NCAA Tournament again this year.
The Huskies come into this game with a 14-12 record and sit in 3rd place in the AAC conference. Although the only way they will get into the tournament is by winning the conference tournament, that looks like it could happen.
The Huskies have won four in a row and seven of their last eight games. They have won their last three games by a total of seven points, so they have been closing out games well.
The slower the pace of the game the better off for the Huskies. They average 66.6 points per game well giving up 64.6 points per game.
The Huskies are led by Sophomore guard Jalen Adams. He is averaging 14.9 points, 6.6 assists, and 4.4 rebounds per game.
With all the injuries the Huskies have suffered they have lost a lot of depth. For this team to continue to have success Adam has to come up big.
The Houston Cougars have also had a very good season up to this point. They come into this game with a 18-8 record and are tied with the Huskies for third place in the AAC.
They are 5-1 in their last six games. In their last game they did lose to SMU. For the Cougars to make the big dance they also will probably have to win the conference tournament, so every win now will improve their seeding and give the team confidence.
For the Cougars to win they want to push the pace.
They average 75 points per game and they need to use that to their advantage. The faster this game is played at, the better chance the Cougars will come out ahead.
