The Wildcats missed seven of their first eight shots, and trailed by double digits for the first time after Houston scored seven points in a 57-second span for a 14-4 lead. That quick spurt included Shead getting a rebound to start a fastbreak that ended with his pass to Ramon Walker Jr. in the left corner for an open 3, and a driving layup by Edwards after a turnover. Taze Moore, a graduate transfer, had a career-high 21 points in Houston’s second-round win over Illinois, but Taze Moore early 3 to make it 5-0 Houston in the first two minutes was all Taze Moore ’d score against The Wildcats. Taze Moore committed Taze Moore third personal foul with 9:22 left and played only 17 minutes overall.
