Houston vs. Temple score, takeaways: Owls stun No. 1 Cougars for first win over top-ranked team since 2000

In one of the biggest upsets of the college basketball season, Temple stunned No. 1 Houston on Sunday for its first win over a No. 1-ranked team in 23 years with a 56-55 shocker inside the Fertitta Center. The Owls, who were 19.5-point underdogs coming into the game, took the lead with 7:46 left in the second half and never trailed thereafter as they ended the Cougars’ nine-game winning streak in impressive fashion.

Houston’s loss marked the second time this season it has lost at home — both of which came while it was ranked No. 1 in the AP Top 25 poll. The first loss came on Dec. 10 when then-No. 8-ranked Alabama marched into the Fertitta Center and won 71-65. It’s just the third loss at home in conference play for Houston in the last six seasons under coach Kelvin Sampson.

Houston has played with fire at various points in league play when heavily favored, like in close-shave wins over UCF and South Florida. On Sunday, though, Houston couldn’t dig its way out of a hole after going 1-of-7 shooting from 3 in the second half and 8-of-23 shooting from the floor. 

According to CBS Sports Bracketology expert Jerry Palm, Houston has lost its place as a projected No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, dropping down to a No. 2 slot. Arizona, meanwhile, will move up to No. 1 seed status after its big conference win over UCLA on Saturday. 

Houston finally gets burned

In close tilts vs. South Florida and UCF, Houston managed to escape with wins but flirted perilously close to disaster. Against Temple, it fooled around but could not figure it out late, this time paying the price courtesy of a cold shooting streak late that prevented it from coming back in a major stumble as 19.5-point favorites, making it the biggest upset over an AP No. 1 team since Stephen F. Austin beat No. 1 Duke as a 27.5-point underdog in 2019, per ESPN Stats and Information. Houston had a really good look at the final buzzer to win…
