AAC Tournament Semi-Finals: Houston

Saturday, March 11th, 2023
3:00 PM
Dickies Arena

The Bearcats (20-11 [11-7], NET #68, KenPom #52) look to hit their peak today and defeat Houston (30-2 [17-1 AAC] NET #1, KenPom #1) who is aiming to win their first national championship in program history.

Despite shooting a season-worst 28.1% from the field yesterday, the #1 Cougars defeated #9 seed East Carolina 60-44 in the first quarterfinal match-up of the day in Fort Worth.

Houston forced 17 ECU turnovers and shot 20/26 (77%) from the FT line while also holding ECU to 31.4% shooting from the field and 15.8% shooting from deep (3/19).

In our last match-up on January 28th, a 75-69 loss at Houston, the Cougars made 25/36 (69.4%) 2-point shots. AAC Freshman of the Year Jarace Walker is averaging 23 ppg and 6 rpg in both games against the Bearcats this season.

The winner of this afternoon's match-up will take on the winner of #2 Memphis and #3 Tulane at 3:15 pm Sunday afternoon in the AAC Championship.

The Cougars are 9.5-point favorites.
