Houston basketball’s undefeated season ended in heartbreak with charge call - SB Nation

Temple ended Houston’s undefeated season with a charge cal.

  Kelvin Sampson’s Houston Cougars are one of the best stories of the college basketball season.

  After seeing their season end in heartbreak in the NCAA tournament last season on Jordan Poole’s infamous buzzer-beater, the Cougars this year by winning their first 15 games despite the loss of last year’s senior star Rob Gray.

  Senior guard Corey Davis drove to the hole for the game-tying layup, but Temple took a charge and the Cougars’ unbeaten season ended on contact.

  Davis made the shot and conceivably could have gone to the foul line to win the game for Houston, but the refs clearly made the correct call.

  Temple picks up a huge win — star wing Quentin Rose popped off for 22 points — and Houston takes first L. All Sampson could do is fall to the floor: The AAC is tough this year, with UCF, SMU, and this Temple team posing legitimate threats to Houston in conference.
