Alabama reportedly sets return game for home-and-home series with Houston
Houston is looking for revenge, and the Cougars might just get it in front of a home crowd.
Alabama and Houston last met in December, with Alabama snatching a 1 point victory in a controversial ending. JD Davison made key plays on offense and defense in the final minute to lift Nate Oats’ squad to victory. Davison scored the go-ahead points to make it 83-82 with just over 32 seconds remaining.
On Houston’s final possession, Davison made the key swat to keep the Cougars from scoring before the buzzer. Houston argued that Davison should have been called for goaltending. “If I was in their shoes, I’d be looking for a goal-tending call too,” Oats said after the game.
Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported on Tuesday that Houston would take on Alabama on Dec. 10 at the Fertitta Center in Houston.

One thing Houston won’t have to worry about is the likes of Davison goal-tending. Davison was selected with the 53rd overall pick in the draft by the Celtics last month, and was signed to a two-way contract. Under the terms of the deal he would split time between the Celtics and their NBA G-League team.
