Good Luck Coogs!

Good Luck in the Tournament!

On the eve of our Cougar cousins’ first-round clash with the Longwood Lancers, we Gators have so much we want to say: We’re proud of Coach Sampson and the team, and we’re thrilled by all the success they’ve had this year.

More than that, we’re thankful for the way they’ve achieved that success, always giving everything they have and never, not once, disrespecting the game, the opponent, or the great opportunities afforded every student that enrolls in any of the University of Houston System institutions. But because the game is tomorrow, there’s no time to say it all...instead, we’ll just say this:

All of us UHD Gators are cheering for “dear old U of H,” and we can’t wait to see you give Houstonians that One Shining Moment.

Go Coogs!
