Will Houston’s Marcus Sasser play vs. Auburn?
Health concerns have overshadowed the University of Houston’s 1-0 start at the NCAA tournament, but Cougars fans received some positive news prior to Saturday’s Round of 32 game against Auburn.
Senior guard Marcus Sasser suffered a groin injury during last weekend’s American Athletic Conference tournament semifinals and missed the championship game, a loss to Memphis, as a result. Sasser returned to the starting lineup for the opening round of March Madness, as UH beat Northern Kentucky 63-52. But he only played 14 minutes, registering five points and two rebounds, and did not see the floor in the second half.
