5 reasons why Houston Cougars Men’s Basketball will win the AAC tournament

On the heels of one of the most dominant regular seasons in AAC Men’s Basketball history, the Houston Cougars are set to tackle the AAC Conference Tournament. As the No. 1 team in the nation, Houston gets the opposition’s best effort every game, which always makes an upset a distinct possibility. However, the Cougars are the overwhelming favorite to cut down the nets in Fort Worth on Sunday afternoon. Here are five reasons the Coogs will win the AAC Tournament.

1. Head Coach Kelvin Sampson

With Head Coach Kelvin Sampson at the helm, the team will be well-prepared for each game. Under his leadership, Houston has achieved great success in recent years, and he is one of the best coaches in college basketball today. He is a master tactician and motivator who knows how to get his players to perform at their best when it counts most. Coach Sampson has won four out of the last five AAC regular-season titles as well as leading UH to the Final Four during the 2020-21 season and the Elite Eight last season, further proving his ability to lead his players when it counts most during crunchtime scenarios.

2. Versatility

The Cougars have been incredibly consistent all season long, showing that they can score points when needed and also clamp down on defense with an intense, physical defensive style. This versatility gives them a great chance to win the tournament as they can adapt to the different situations they may encounter.

3. Deep Talented Roster 

The 2023 UH Men’s Basketball team boasts an impressive roster of talented players with a wide range of skills that will prove invaluable come tournament time. This includes stars such as Marcus Sasser, Jamal Shead, and Tramon Mark, as well as freshmen Jarace Walker, Emanuel Sharp, and Terrance Arceneaux. The Cougars are also determined to be a powerful force in the paint, with three versatile forwards leading the charge; J’Wan Roberts, Reggie Chaney, and Ja’Vier Francis. With them at their side, this team could go far! Each player brings unique abilities to the table that could be critical factors in the team’s success during their AAC tournament run.

4. High-Tech Film Study

Another advantage afforded to UH Men’s Basketball team is its high-tech video analysis system that allows coaches to breakdown film of upcoming opponents to devise strategies tailored specifically to their style of play. This sophisticated technology gives players important intel on what they can expect from their opponents while also providing valuable insight into how best to exploit weaknesses in opposing defenses or take advantage of offensive opportunities presented by opposing teams’ mistakes or missteps on the court.

5. Team Culture

Finally, there is no doubt that morale among members of this squad is high due to its strong bond both on and off the court, which was cultivated throughout summer workouts and preseason practice sessions leading up to the 2022-23 season. When playing together with confidence and camaraderie, this group could become a formidable force that can march through tough matchups en route to becoming AAC Tournament Champions for the third consecutive year.
