Tony Greene, Garrick Shannon, Keith Patterson

Greene has worked 15 UH games in the last five years (although none this season). The Cougars are 14-1 when he’s on the floor. The only loss: that UCF loss at Fertitta in 2019. He’s also worked two AAC tournaments and the Cleveland State game in the 2021 NCAA Tournament bubble.

Shannon officiated the McNeese game last week. The Cougars are 5-1 in games he has worked in the last five seasons (loss: @Tulsa in 2020). Patterson has only reffed one UH game in the last five years (HBU 2019).

This will be Greene’s fourth game in a row, but the other two had Friday off.
