HOUSTON – The University of Houston Men’s Basketball program opens its 73rd season of competition at 3 p.m., Sunday, when it plays host to Angelo State in an exhibition inside Health & PE Arena on the campus of Texas Southern University in a game presented by Maintenance Supply Headquarters.

Under the leadership of Head Coach Kelvin Sampson, the Cougars return five lettermen and three starters from last year’s squad, which posted 20+ wins and advanced to the NIT for the second straight season.

The Cougars have enjoyed a quick start to the 2017-18 season. Houston claimed an 81-78 win over No. 24 Baylor in Waco, Texas, on Oct. 21 behind senior guard Rob Gray’s game highs of 25 points and 11 assists.

Gray leads the way for the Cougars after averaging a team- and American Athletic Conference best 20.6 points per game in 2016-17. The Forest City, N.C., native was named to the Preseason All-American Athletic Conference First Team and was named to the Watch List for the Jerry West Award, presented to the nation’s top off-guard.

Senior forward Devin Davis finished as the Cougars’ second-leading rebounder a year ago despite missing nearly half the season with hand and foot injuries. Senior guard Wes VanBeck is the team’s 3-year letterman and connected on 48.4 percent of his 3-point tries and 87.3 percent of his free throw attempts a year ago.

In addition to the returning stars, the Cougars welcome nine newcomers to the program in 2017-18. That award-winning group includes freshman guard Mike Adewunmi (Mansfield, Texas); freshman forward Cedrick Alley Jr. (Houston); junior forward Breaon Brady (Akron, Ohio); Caleb Broodo (Midland, Mich.); junior guard Corey Davis Jr. (Lafayette, La.); junior forward Gabe Grant (Chicago); sophomore center Chris Harris Jr. (Houston); freshman forward Fabian White Jr. (Atascocita, Texas) and senior forward Nura Zanna (Kaduna, Nigeria).
