The Round of 64 in the NCAA Tournament will conclude on Friday night, and one of the final contests of the evening should be an exciting one.

Joran ‘Jelly’ Walker and UAB will battle Houston for a spot in the Round of 32, as the Blazers enter this game off a Conference USA title that secured their auto-bid into the tournament.

Houston heads into March Madness after winning the AAC Tournament thanks to blowout wins of Cincinnati, Tulane and Memphis. The Cougars fell in the Final Four of last year’s tourney, with Baylor proving to be too good for anyone to handle.

UAB didn’t run through its conference tournament as Houston did, and it took a wild comeback victory in the semifinal to even reach the championship game.

Down six with 40 seconds to play, the Blazers staged an improbable comeback bid that was ultimately completed in the next overtime period.

Does UAB have any more upset magic in them, or do sharps like the Cougars to run the show in Pittsburgh?
