UH caps off first NCAA tournament win in 34 years (KTRK)

Senior guard Rob Gray was the difference-maker for UH's first NCAA tournament win in more than 30 years.

With the Cougars going cold down the stretch, UH nearly coughed up a double-digit halftime lead to San Diego State, but Houston prevailed, 67-65.

Gray's go-ahead layup with just one second left on the game clock sealed it for Houston.

Gray scored a game-high 39 points, which is the most points scored in a debut NCAA Tournament game.

The Cougars will take on the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday. Tip-off time is set for 8:40 p.m.
