Game Preview

Expect the fur to fly when top-ranked Houston and dangerous Memphis square off for the American Athletic Conference Championship on Sunday afternoon in Fort Worth, Texas. But the Cougars may have to battle their rival without the conference’s player of the year.

Marcus Sasser, Houston’s top scorer, went down with a groin injury in the first half and did not return. His status will be determined at game time on Sunday.

It’s the last time the teams will play as members of the AAC. The Cougars leave the league in July to join the Big 12.
