Photo Gallery: Houston’s lead-off NCAA Tournament wins
March 27, 2019
Houston had a dominant victory against Georgia State and then Ohio State to start the NCAA Tournament, and The Cougar had photographers on the scene to document the wins.
Many of the Cougars shined in their own way. Senior guard Corey Davis Jr. shined in scoring, sophomore Fabian White Jr. led the team in rebounds and senior Breaon Brady was a force on both sides of the court.
Redshirt sophomore Brison Gresham scored nine points and kept the Buckeyes’ offensive leaders contained while Davis Jr. had 21 points of his own.
