What to Know
The #12 Houston Cougars are 8-2 against the Temple Owls since January of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. Houston and Temple will face off in an American Athletic battle at 5 p.m. ET at Liacouras Center. After both teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
The Cougars entered their matchup last Wednesday as the heavy favorite, and they fully lived up to expectations. They took their contest at home with ease, bagging an 80-47 win over the Texas State-San Marcos Bobcats. Houston got double-digit scores from four players: forward Josh Carlton (20), guard Kyler Edwards (14), guard Marcus Sasser (13), and guard Jamal Shead (12).
Meanwhile, Temple simply couldn’t be stopped last week, as they easily beat the Delaware State Hornets at home 85-48. Forward Zach Hicks took over for Temple, finishing with 35 points (a whopping 41% of their total) along with seven boards. Hicks’ performance made up for a slower game against the UCF Knights two weeks ago. Hicks’ points were the most he has had all year.
Their wins bumped the Cougars to 11-2 and the Owls to 7-5. Both Houston and Temple have easy wins in recent memory. We’ll see which one’s ego takes a hit when they face off.
