Fans, alumni react to Cougars advancing to Sweet Sixteen
There is no doubt Cougar basketball fans from around Houston are excited about the team’s success this season.
Houston, in the middle of its best season in almost four decades, has been nothing short of amazing for its proud fans, securing a spot in March Madness’ Sweet Sixteen on Sunday after defeating Ohio State.
From UH athletic legends to regular alumni, fans of the Cougars are happy to have a No. 3 ranked team representing the city and UH on the national stage in the NCAA Tournament.
The Cougar spoke to a few fans and a familiar Houston legend at a Round of 32 watch party being hosted at Avenida Houston Sunday to get their reactions.
After the win, fans, alumni, athletes, media outlets and other UH athletes spoke out on Twitter in support of the Cougars.
