No. 8 Houston riding high into replacement game vs. Temple

While avenging their lone loss of the season, the No. 8 Houston Cougars looked every bit like the favorite to win the American Athletic Conference with their dominating showing against Tulsa.

The Cougars throttled the Golden Hurricane 86-59 on Wednesday at home, erasing the memory of their one-point loss at Tulsa in late December. Houston (12-1, 7-1 American) will now prep for a quick turnaround against a surprise opponent, replacing a home game against Cincinnati on its schedule with Temple on Saturday in Philadelphia.

In what was arguably their best performance against a conference foe, the Cougars made 13 of 32 3-pointers, posted a 52-24 rebound advantage and outscored Tulsa 26-7 in second-chance points. Houston has been strong all season, but now looks the part of a national title contender by having created distance from the roster attrition that could have undermined its success.
