University of Houston Last Texas Team Standing in NCAA Tournament
This year's tournament started off with six teams from the state of Texas competing for the title of national champions. The number of Texans on the court has been decreasing since the beginning of the tournament however, with Texas Southern falling to Kansas 83-56.
Many of the teams looked primed to push to the Sweet 16 but the Texas count slowly kept falling apart as the tournament went on. University of Texas, TCU, and the 2021 tournament champion Baylor Bears were all knocked out in the second round. This left only Texas Tech and Houston moving forward.
The University of Houston won their matchup in the Sweet 16, defeating Arizona 72-60. Texas Tech did not fare so well in the round, losing to Duke 78-73. Coach K continues his legendary farewell tour at the expense of the Red Raiders, leaving Houston as the last team from the state of Texas still in the tournament.
The University of Houston Punched their ticket to the elite eight, with their win over Arizona taking them to their second appearance in as many years. The rest of the Sweet 16 games happen tonight to determine the rest of the field.
