Tom Penders, Coogs, Step Into Controversy

Arizona tripped up Houston 96-90 in overtime Saturday, and the Cougars blew a double-digit lead on the road. Tom Penders team was up 63-51 midway through the 2nd half when Aubrey Coleman decided to use Arizona's Chase Budinger's face as a throw rug.

Even after the flareup, Houston led by three with less than 30 seconds left in regulation. 'Zona had to foul, and they picked Kelvin Lewis, an 84% shooter from the free throw line for the year. Naturally he missed both. The Wildcats hit a 3-pointer to send it into overtime, where Houston went 0-10 from the field.

Karma's a Bitch.
