March Madness: 5 storylines to follow at this week's AAC Tournament

Houston or the field?

_Houston answered any questions still lingering from its home loss to UCF on March 2 by blasting Cincinnati on the road just a week later. _

The Cougars have been dominant all season, outscoring their opponents by a league-best 14.8 points per game.

Coach Kelvin Sampson’s team has climbed as high as No. 8 in the AP Top 25 and still has a chance to claim a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Houston finished the season with a 16-2 conference record and an outright AAC title.
