Grimes helps No. 2 seed Houston rally past Rutgers, 63-60
The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Houston coach Kelvin Sampson wasn't about to apologize for an ugly win over Rutgers on Sunday night. After scrapping for every loose ball and rebound just to stay in the game, the second-seeded Cougars got a clutch three-point play from freshman Tramon Mark with 24 seconds left, then watched as Ron Harper Jr.'s tying 3-point try bounce off the rim at the buzzer to escape with a 63-60 victory and earn another trip to the Sweet 16. Quentin Grimes led the Cougars' comeback with 22 points, and DeJon Jarreau overcame a severely bruised hip to score 17 with a key bucket down the stretch, as Houston (26-3) marched on to play No. 11 seed Syracuse next weekend.
