ABOUT HOUSTON COUGARS
Under the leadership of Head Coach Kelvin Sampson, the Cougars collected 13 wins in 2014-15, including a 70-68 victory against defending national champion UConn on Feb. 1 inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

Houston came on strong toward the end of the 2014-15 season, winning four of its last five contests, including a 66-60 win against Tulane during the First Round of the American Championship on March 12, inside the XL Center in Hartford Conn.

Six lettermen return from the 2014-15 season. Senior forward Devonta Pollard was one of only three players to rank among the American Athletic Conference top-16 leaders in both scoring and rebounding with 11.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Junior forward Danrad Knowles was the Cougars' third-leading scorer with 9.9 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, while senior guard LeRon Barnes - who recently received his bachelor's degree from the University - was one of six players to rank among the league's top-11 leaders in both offensive and defensive rebounding despite being the smallest member of that exclusive group.
