      Sasser, Mark lead No. 17 Houston to 89-45 win over Lamar

      Houston coach Kelvin Sampson described the Cougars' play in their season opener as the holy trinity of their program - defend, rebound and take care of the ball. The Cougars used that combination to cruise to victory. Marcus Sasser scored 25 points, Tramon Mark added 22 points and eight rebounds and No. 17 Houston beat Lamar 89-45 on Wednesday.
