There are so many great teams in Texas, even in College Basketball.  Baylor, Texas, Houston and Texas Tech all had short odds to win the 2022 NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship.

The Houston Cougars were ranked No.2 in the nation as of late November 2022 while the Longhorns were ranked number 4.

Much of the Cougars earlier success was being attributed to one Marcus Sasser.

The senior guard led the Cougars with 17.7 points per game last December prior to missing the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to a foot injury.

"I'm really happy now," Sasser says. "I feel like the best decision was made, and I feel like it's showing."


Jeff Borzelo of ESPN wrote of Houston back on November 14:

As North Carolina struggled through its first two games and Gonzaga needed a second-half surge to beat Michigan State, Houston looked like a well-oiled machine right from the opening tip of 2022-23. Marcus Sasser picked up right where he left off before his injury last season, while five-star freshman Jarace Walker had 23 points and eight boards against Saint Joseph's. Jamal Shead looks like one of the elite playmakers in the country. The Cougars defense allowed 91 points in two games. And then there's the emergence of J'Wan Roberts, who averaged 15.5 points and 9.0 rebounds in two games. Kelvin Sampson has a national title contender.

Here are all your futures updated November 26, 2022 (Payouts are on a $100 bet).

Houston Cougars to Win NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship - $600

Texas Longhorns - $1600

Baylor Bears - $1600
