Third-ranked Houston went to the Final Four two seasons ago and the Elite Eight last season and unveils perhaps the best team of the bunch when the season tips off Monday.

That sentiment is common largely because star guard Marcus Sasser is back from foot surgery and the Cougars team him with ballyhooed recruit Jarace Walker. Houston tackles that lofty billing when it opens the season against visiting Northern Colorado.

The No. 3 preseason ranking is Houston’s highest since it was ranked third in the polls before the 1983-84 campaign. That Cougars’ team was led by legendary Hakeem Olajuwon and eventually lost to Georgetown in the national title game.
