The first time these two teams met in contest, the Owls welcomed #16 Wichita State to the American Athletic Conference with an 81-79 upset in overtime. "It's a big deal to come here and make the championship game, and even win it, because it changes the perception that maybe the committee has about our program". Corey Davis Jr. had a stellar game, with 17 points and eight rebounds.

Wichita State loses to the University of Houston in the AAC Tournament Semifinals.

During their last five games, the Shockers have scored an average of 80.4 points per game (2.9 below their season average) and allowed an average of 75.6 points per game (4.4 above their season average). "We have got a good team, too".

Joining the Shockers in the South Region is No. 1 seed Villanova, NO. 2 seed Purdue, No. 3 seed Texas Tech, No. 5 seed West Virginia, No. 6 seed Florida, No. 7 seed Arkansas, No. 10 seed Butler, No. 11 seed St. Bonaventure or UCLA (play-in game), No. 12 seed Murray State, No. 14 seed Stephen F. Austin, No. 15 seed Cal State Fullerton and No. 16 seed Long Island University-Brooklyn or Radford (play-in game).

With the Cougars trailing 74-73, Gray intercepted a pass near midcourt and drove to the basket, handing off to Galen Robinson for a layup with 1:27 remaining.

Houston led by as many as nine points in the first half and by 37-31 at halftime.

Gray had 33 points to go with four rebounds and two steals in Saturday's win over Wichita State.

After trailing nearly the entire game, Wichita State tied the score at 54 on a 3-pointer by Shamet with 9:37 remaining. Obi Enechionyia, who had 19 points in Thursday's 82-77 first round win over Tulane, was saddled by foul trouble and finished with just three points.

The Shockers (25-7) will await word Sunday if they earn an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament.

The Shockers rank third in assists per game (18.7) while the Cougars rank 64th (15.2).

Not that it mattered the way Graham and Newman were knocking down 3-pointers.

Shamet had a team-high 19 points for Wichita State, which lost for just the second time in its last 10 games. And they caught a break when Mykhailiuk and Mitch Lightfoot picked up two fouls apiece, allowing big man Sagaba Konate to score almost at-will in the paint.
