However, no one felt better about Houston's 67-65 win over San Diego State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday. Houston plays again in Wichita on Saturday.

The teams had combined to make just six three-pointers before Watson and Gray combined for three in the final 70 seconds.

The two teams started the second half by trading twos and three back and forth until the Aztecs made some adjustments. They lead San Diego State in every category except free throw percentage, where the Aztecs have a narrow 72.20% over the Cougars' 71.70%.

Houston's biggest lead came at 47-34 with 15:40 remaining in the game.

But the Aztecs did not fully capitalize on these opportunities as they finished the game making 21 of 35 free throws, most of which came in the second half. Here's the entire final minute.

Houston is favored to beat San Diego State by four points according to ESPN commentators.

Gray's game-winning basket came after San Diego State's Devin Watson had nailed his second consecutive, game-tying three-pointer with 36 seconds remaining.

Trey Kell had one last shot for the Aztecs, but his three-pointer as time expired hit the back of the rim, and the Cougars survived to see another game.

March Madness continues for the Cougars on Saturday when they face the victor of MI versus Montana.

"To get University of Houston the first tournament win since 1984, it really feels great", Gray told TBS after the game.
