Team Of The Week: Houston Cougars

(Patrick) #1

And as a result, Houston’s bid to the NCAA tournament is no longer a question so long as they avoid losing to Memphis, East Carolina and UConn. And if they truly are an NCAA tournament team, they’ll get that done.

But perhaps the best piece of news is that the Cougars did all this while Rob Gray did not play well. He’s one of the best players in that conference, and the fact that they were able to right Devin Davis and Corey Davis to wins in two of their most important and toughest games of the league slate is significant.

What happens when Rob Gray gets right?


We become a very tough team to beat.


The fact that the team is playing well without his points speaks volumes in our favor.

If, or when, he gets untracked we’ll be an even harder team to beat.


Rob tends to be a streak shooter. You will notice that even if he is having some problems right now, he still get 13 or 14 points. When his 3’s start falling, the opponent is in BIG trouble!
