Currently 20-6, the Cougars are 9-3 in C-USA and need another win tonight against Southern Mississippi's Golden Eagles to continue their run for post season play. Our team also needs a BIG fan turnout with lots of noise at Hofheinz Pavilion (7 p.m.) as well as at our final home game on Wednesday, March 5th against UCF.
C-USA conference teams play a lot stronger and tougher towards the end of the season and this year is no exception. The Golden Eagles (15-11, 7-5), lost only once (to Tulsa) in their last six games and beat UAB 93-85. Explosive, high pressure play from UH along with a strong defense, controlled inside shooting and some of those trademark treys raining down from McKiver, Dowell, Lewis, Malone and company - would all make for a decisive win! Not to mention getting to the foul line - UH could break a game open if opposing team fouls were actually called!
Since tonight's game is going to be a real nail biter, we need lots of fans and lots of noise raising the roof at the Hof. With $5 tickets and UH's talented basketball team taking the court, this is absolutely the BEST GAME IN TOWN!
Extend UH's home team advantage with your support during these last two home games by getting out to Hofheinz Pavilion and making a lot of noise for a dedicated group of young men who have played their hearts out all season long.
And, mark your calendars now for our final Hofheinz Pavilion conference game on Wednesday, March 5th against UCF!
