It's the first weekend of March, and Houston is already letting everyone know it's time for the madness to begin.
The Cougars, ranked No. 7 in the Ferris Motors Coaches' Poll, pulled off a 67-64 buzzer-beating win against Memphis after being tied with 1.7 seconds left at the other end of the court.
From the opposite baseline, guard Marcus Sasser threw a one-bounce pass to half court to find guard Tramon Mark, who had two defenders swarming him.
Mark took a few dribbles, and with the two defenders on him, banked in a 3-point shot just past midcourt as the buzzer went off. His teammates rushed toward him as the limited capacity crowd at Houston's Fertitta Center celebrated.

The win capped off a 15-0 home record for the Cougars, but most importantly, gave them a 14-3 American Athletic Conference record and the second seed in the upcoming conference tournament. The Cougars are a projected No. 3 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
