In a low moment for Houston sports, the Cougars have earned our cheers | #sports | #elderly | #seniors

It’s been a rough year for Houston sports. The Texans tanked, the Rockets lost their Beard and even an Astros home run doesn’t seem to fly as high after the sign-stealing scandal. Enter the Coogs, who have managed to extend our March Madness into April and have given a pandemic-weary city a reason to stand up and cheer.

The University of Houston Cougars are in the Final Four of the men’s NCAA championship. They are two wins away from making school history and from capturing a trophy that has eluded a Texas team for more than 50 years. They deserve our praise for coming this far and our support as they take on Baylor on Saturday.

“I’m proud of these kids, proud of the heart, proud of battling through so many things this year, whether it was injuries or transfers or a tough loss here or there,” said Coach Kelvin Sampson. “For this team to be 28-3 and going to the Final Four, this is one of the greatest accomplishments I’ve been around.”

That is not an empty boast, but inspiring words from a coach who celebrated his 1,000th career game with a win over Oregon State last week that sent the team to the national semifinals. The Cougars — led by starters Quentin Grimes, Marcus Sasser, DeJon Jarreau, Justin Gorham and Reggie Chaney — are energetic and resilient, full of hustle and heart. No wonder Houston is paying attention. Game recognizes game.
