Houston Form


Houston head into the Sweet 16 of March Madness in outstanding form with 11 wins in their last 12 games.

They ended the regular season with a disappointing loss at Memphis, but they rebounded in style during the ACC conference tournament.

The Cougars eased past Cincinnati, 69-56, blew out Tulane, 86-66, and they rolled over Memphis, 71-53.

Houston followed up that dominant run with an 82-68 win over UAB in the first round of March Madness.

They then took their current win streak to five games with a 68-53 victory over #19 Illinois in round two.

Taze Moore played a starring role for the Cougars with 21 points and seven rebounds in the victory.

Jamal Shead contributed 18 points, while Kyler Edwards had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists.

Arizona Form


Arizona have been in blistering form since late January, winning 17 of their last 18 games.

They wrapped up the regular season on a three-game win streak and continued that great run in the Pac-12 conference tournament.

The Wildcats beat Stanford and Colorado to seal a place in the final, and then claimed the crown with an 84-76 win against #13 UCLA.

Arizona extended their win streak to seven games with a convincing 87-70 win over Wright State in round one of March Madness.

It hit eight games last Sunday night, but they were made to work for an 85-80 OT win over TCU.

Benedict Mathurin poured in 30 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out four assists in the win.

Christian Koloko also shone, shooting 92% from the field as he racked up 28 points to go along with 12 rebounds.
