UConn has not had a great season and if they take the loss in this game they will finish the season with a losing record.
Houston may be on the Big Dance bubble and they really need to win this game. They beat the Huskies twice in the regular season.
In their last games UConn beat South Florida 77-66 and Houston beat East Carolina 73-51.
UConn only ranks 307th in the nation in points per game, but a solid 41st in points allowed.
In their win over USF in their last game they won with their defense holding the Bulls to a FG% of 41.4% and one big key to the victory was them forcing 21 turnovers. UConn jumped out to a 13-point halftime lead.
Rodney Purvis was HUGE in the USF game going for 30 points, which was a career high, and a couple of other Huskies went for double figures.
The Huskies had two players that averaged in double figures go down very early in the season and Purvis (13.3 ppg) and Jalen Adams (14.1 ppg) are the team leaders and the only ones averaging in double figures.
This season UConn won 3 of their 5 games held at a neutral site.
Houston ranks 169th in points per game and 26th in points allowed.
In their win over East Carolina in their last game the Cougars blew up in the 2nd half where they outscored the Pirates by 21 points. Their defense was solid in the game forcing 16 turnovers and they held East Carolina to a FG% of 32%.
In the East Carolina game Rob Gray scored 24 points and only one other player scored in double figures.
He is averaging 20.3 ppg for the season and the other big scorer is Damyean Dotson, who is averaging 17.4 ppg, as well as 7.1 rpg, but he really struggled in the East Carolina game only scoring eight points on 2/16 shooting.
In the last eight times these teams have faced each other the underdog has covered the spread 6 times.
Houston is a perfect 3-0 this season in games at a neutral site.
