While the short five- mile drive from the UH campus to Rice's base on South Main, it is technically considered a road trip for the Cougars. Then again, they've done these short trips before. "It's a 5- mile trip for us but remember not long ago before Fertitta Center opened, we had 19 two mile trips," said UH Head Coach Kelvin Sampson referencing UH's former temporary home at Texas Southern.
