We are quickly becoming a very hard ticket. I have a buddy who said he had an easier time getting Hamilton tickets.

Cincy SBNation site preview

Where the Bearcats struggle, the Cougars excel. They are the best three-point defense in the AAC, allowing opponents to shoot a pitiful 26.5 percent from beyond the arc. Despite that, Cougar opponents are scoring 31.3 percent of their points from three. That is probably more a symptom of foes needing to try to shoot their way back into games rather than a deficiency from the Cougars. After all, they are third in the country in opponent true shooting percentage, 11th in defensive efficiency and they can protect the paint themselves, ranking 28th in block rate.

It’s rare to see the Bearcats play a team that plays defense better than them. In this matchup, they may finally be witnessing that reality.

These two teams are going to get after each other. Getting the crowd into this game early and keeping them there will be huge.


#5

This one has the feel of the great Houston v Arkansas games. Lewis v Sutton, Hakeem v Klein.

Can’t wait till tomorrow.

Wasn’t able to get tickets to this game :frowning:

Classic procrastination

Hopefully some Rockets and Texans show up to this game


#10

Stub hub??


#11

You can still get tickets. Look online, if price is too steep then you can wait for it to go down tomorrow (assuming someone else doesn’t buy them ahead of you)

Ypu can always stand at the gate and order the cheapest one just before you are ready to walk into the arena.

I’m coming in for this one! Flying into DFW Sunday morning for work this week, down and back the same day. First time on campus in 13 years. I’ve been to many away games in that time. Going with 2 of my old college roommates. Go Coogs!

Lucky I bought 4 tix 1.5 months ago for $27 each prices have skyrocketed since then.

All the seats are grey on the UH website

Early lines have Houston at -4.5/-5.

Isn’t it GREAT to be the “hot ticket” in Houston? The Cougars are the “hot ticket.” Ordinary Houstonians are wanting to come to the game. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be LOUD. Come early, wear red, and be ready to stand and get loud. UH v. Cincy = a March Madness type atmosphere between rock solid teams. I’m excited for the game, nervous, amped up, worried, and the list goes on and on. A great time to be UH Cougar!

Go Coogs. Peace.

Grad 94 is right Coog Facebook pages are pretty hilarious the last couple days. Anybody have extra tickets? Why are they so expensive? This is the school’s fault they made us good at basketball. StubHub is the devil. The pendulum has swung.


(Patrick) #18

Guess the people in Houston will be buying season tickets next year
