No. 20 Houston looks to sweep AAC rival SMU

66 0

Houston is so balanced that two of its best players, Nate Hinton and Caleb Mills, combined for only five points at South Florida on Wednesday, but the 20th-ranked Cougars still won 62-58 to stay atop the American Athletic Conference standings.

“We’re kind of, who’s going good, and let them have it,” Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said.

Next up is a much stiffer challenge than what was presented by South Florida, which has lost 30 straight games against ranked teams since 2012.

The Cougars (20-5, 10-2 AAC) travel to SMU (17-6, 7-4) on Saturday to play a Mustangs team that has won five of its last seven games since losing at Houston on Jan. 15.
