The Cougars stayed red-hot with a dominating 86-59 win over Tulsa Wednesday night at Fertitta Center. While leaving no doubt on the scoreboard, UH also had more offensive rebounds than Tulsa had total rebounds (25-24) which led to a huge differential in second-chance points (UH won that 26-7).
Marcus Sasser scored 26 and Quentin Grimes had 18 as the offense continues to improve following the departure of Caleb Mills. UH is 5-0 in that time, having scored 70+ in each and winning by an average of 17 ppg. Tramon Mark finished with 11 points and continues to be a major contributor off the bench.
UH leads the country in offensive rebounding and is #2 in scoring defense. The Coogs are in the top-10 nationally in six major statistical categories and are currently 5th in the NCAA NET.
