White helps Houston beat No. 16 Wichita State 65-54

WICHITA. Kan. (AP) It was the type of validating victory that made Houston coach Kelvin Sampson get a bit reflective.

After the Cougars emphatically took down No. 16 Wichita State 65-54 on Saturday, beating a ranked team in a very difficult environment, Sampson thought back to this season's origins.

"I could see in November where we were going to be pretty good, but we weren't very good in November," he said.
