Rugby United NY at Houston SaberCats @ Aveva Stadium

Grab tickets and find out if they can push themselves from the bottom! Tickets are on sale for $60 on SeatGeek.
Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets @ Toyota Center
Wednesday, February 26 | 7PM
In January, the Memphis Grizzlies played against the Houston Rockets and won with a score of 121-110. The Rockets had the lead for the first quarter, but the Grizzlies started to pick up around the end of the second quarter before finishing the game. Before that, the Rockets won their last game in November of last year with a score of just over 7 points from the Memphis Grizzlies. These teams are comparable this season and this game will be quite a nail-biter for these two skilled teams.
Missouri State Bears at Rice Owls Baseball @ Reckling Park
Friday, February 28 | 6:30PM
This Friday night, grab tickets on SeatGeek to watch the Missouri State Bears play against the Rice Owls from Rice University at Reckling Park. Last week, just a few days after their big opening day at UCA, Logan Wiley from the Missouri State Bears picks up the Missouri Valley Conference Baseball Pitcher of the week recognition. He is en route to earning the Missouri State University’s Dave Dickensheet Pitcher of the year honor. It’s clear this will be a hard team to beat with a pitcher like Wiley.
UConn Huskies at Houston Cougars Womens Basketball @ Fertitta Center
Saturday, February 29 | 2PM
The UConn Huskies crushed the Houston Cougars in January with a whopping score of 91-51. The Huskies were completely dominating the game since the first quarter and were not showing any signs of slowing down, winning them their victory. This win extended UConn’s streak of consecutive games without a back-to-back loss for 975 games since 1993. UConn’s defense smothered Houston in the first quarter, allowing only 2 points for that entire time. Will the Houston Cougars be able to redeem themselves after this game? Grab tickets for this Saturday afternoon!
Cincinnati Bearcats at Houston Cougars Basketball @ Fertitta Center
Sunday, March 1 | 12PM
At the beginning of February, the Cincinnati Bearcats won against the Houston Cougars with a close game of 64-62. The Cincinnati Bearcats started out pretty weak, suffering a double digit deficit by the second quarter. This victory moved the Bearcats into a tie with the Cougars in the running for the top spot in the American Athletic Conference. Grab tickets on SeatGeek to watch them play against each other again this Sunday afternoon at the Fertitta Center.
