The University of Houston Cougars fell to the Alabama Crimson Tide at the Firtitta Center in front of a record sell out crowd. Coach Kelvin Sampson's number one team in the nation could not hold on to a 15-point second half lead as the Tide chipped away to ultimately take the lead and win by a score of 71-65. This was the first time a UH team was involved in a top ten matchup on their home court. (Photos by Jack Gorman)
