I heard ticket sales are very good and a few of us are going to the H Association BBQ. Called ticket office and asked about buying tickets after BBQ and before the game Saturday. They suggested if we wanted decent seats (near center court view) to buy today. I requested best available and we have Section 106 Row Z. I hope there is a very good crowd. We went to the UCF game after the NSD event with the free tickets they handed out. We could have sat anywhere in great seats for that game.

I witnessed people turning down free basketball tickets at the NSD event and quickly understood the basketball attendance issue. UH football supporters on campus for an event would not take free admission to attend a game. It does not get much simpler than that. I am not blaming folks but the program has a huge problem to overcome to achieve sustained support and attendance.

Also, was surprised that the 2 free tickets were only for those without basketball season tickets. I was going to hand them out to some other people but glad my offers to others for the two tickets were not accepted.

No problem. If CKS can get us to number 1 in the nation, then attendance will sky rocket to about 80 percent capacity.

Of course, if we lose a game in the year, then all bets are off and we should fire CKS.

That is how UHBB always has rolled at UH.


We could be like SMU after the Fertita Center is complete.

I don’t we should resort to cheating !!

I got that same feeling I did before the OU and Louisville games. Expecting good things to happen.

Same. This seems to be the game that can launch this program forward into national relevance. Think our guys are up for the challenge.

Some of the big schools cheat, due to shoe companies, and AAU.

BTW, if UH stays healthy the rest of the way, I only see UH losing at UC.

after watching smu and cincinnati play…we can beat both…we are playing much better than earlier in the season.

But…we were talking about SMU !

Houston hopes to make impression vs. No. 19 SMU (Feb 18, 2017)

Google Search Link:

“If (SMU) is not the best team in the league they are 1A,” Sampson said. "Cincinnati and SMU, take your pick. This is a great opportunity for us.

“We have aspirations of playing our way close to being a tournament team. The schedule couldn’t have worked out any better for us. We’ll see if we are good enough to do it.”

I haven’t even walked into the stadium and it’s an awesome atmosphere
