UH celebrates historic win after clinching spot in Sweet 16
The University of Houston beat Ohio State 74-59 and clinched a spot in the Sweet 16. The last time the Houston Cougars men’s basketball team went to the Sweet 16 was in the Phi Slama Jama days back in 1984. 1, 2 and 3 seed will reach the Sweet 16 for the first time in a decade. But when you’re 33 and 3 , you’re really good at one thing and that’s winning,” said Coach Kelvin Sampson. Every 1-, 2- and 3-seed also reached the Sweet 16 in 2009, which was the first time that had happened since the bracket expanded to 64 teams in 1985.
