HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – In a season that has put Houston Cougar basketball back on the map, UH added another accolade on Monday as they jumped into the top 10 in both major polls.

Houston climbed from No. 12 to No. 9 in both the AP and Coaches Polls.

The Cougars improved to 23-1 with two tough wins last week, first a road win against UCF, the preseason pick to win the American Conference.  UH dominated on their way to a 77-68 win.  Then Sunday, the Cougars defeated No. 25 Cincinnati, 65-58 in front of a sold out Fertitta Center.

UH will be on the road twice this week as they face UConn on Thursday and then a trip to New Orleans to face Tulane on Sunday.
