At 8-0, the Houston Cougars basketball team has quickly become one of the hottest tickets in town – and that’s saying something in a city with the Texans (9-4) and the Rockets (12-14).
The Cougars have been so impressive this season that tonight’s game against LSU will feature several Rockets superstars looking to enjoy the show.
According to basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Rockets stars Chris Paul and James Harden are going to be in attendance for the sold out game against LSU.
It isn’t just NBA royalty in attendance either. Houston Texas All-Pro DE J.J. Watt is reportedly in attendance for the game as well.
Sources: Both Chris Paul and James Harden will be in attendance for Houston's game tonight against LSU. Houston Texans' star J.J. Watt is also expected. Game is sold out.

The Cougars have been boosted this year by exceptional play from junior G Armoni Brooks, who is averaging 16.5 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. Both marks lead the team.
Houston is currently ranked No. 24 by the major polls but their only win against a ranked opponent this season came against No. 18 Oregon earlier this month.
The Cougars are one of nine remaining undefeated team in the NCAA, along with Kansas, Texas Tech, Nevada, Michigan, Virginia, St. John’s, Buffalo, and Furman.
Houston and LSU are set to tip off at 9 p.m. E.T. on ESPN2.
