Sasser, Grimes lead No. 8 Houston past Temple 68-51

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Kelvin Sampson watched his Houston team win another rout and found "two or three areas" of needed improvement. Clean those up and another number comes into focus for the Cougars: a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

"If we get better in the areas we need to be good at," Houston's coach said, "all that stuff takes care of itself."

Marcus Sasser and Quentin Grimes each scored 15 points and No. 8 Houston rolled to its sixth consecutive victory, 68-51 over Temple on Saturday.
