Finally! Houston has gone back, to the Final Four. It’s no longer, “maybe next year.” Gone are the days of building for the future. It wasn’t always pretty, but that doesn’t matter. The time is now. The Cougars have arrived.
“It is not supposed to be easy,” UH head coach Kelvin Sampson told reporters after the game. “Proud of the kids, proud of the heart, proud of battling through so many things this year, whether it was injuries or transfers or a tough loss here or there. For this team to be 28-3 and going to the Final Four, this is one of the greatest accomplishments I’ve been around.
