HOUSTON – University of Houston guard Marcus Sasser will return to compete for the Cougars during the 2022-23 season after withdrawing from the NBA Draft.
Sasser made the announcement Wednesday night on his Instagram and Twitter pages. The Dallas native will compete as a senior in 2022-23 after missing the final 26 games a year ago following season-ending foot surgery.
With Sasser, the Cougars return three starters from the 2021-22 team, which posted a 32-6 overall record, swept the American Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament championships and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for the second straight season.
Numerous media organizations have Houston among the nation’s Top 10 in Way-Too-Early 2022-23 Preseason Rankings with some reaching as high as No. 2.
