Facets Player(s) of the Night: Houston Cougars / Rajon Rondo

1HOUSTON

Down 31-6 with 13:58 left? Nothing the Houston Cougars couldn’t handle against the University of Pittsburgh Friday during the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. 

Houston recovered two onside kicks, scored three touchdowns and a two-point conversion all under two minutes too win the game in incredible fashion. They did all this with an interim head coach, might I add.

Greg Ward Jr. owned the fourth throwing three touchdowns and the game winning two point conversion. He lead one of the more improbable comebacks in bowl history and it was enough to land them a spot as co-player of the night.

Our second player of the night was Rajon Rondo. His return to Boston was, well, great. He scored Dallas’ first ten points, a career-high 15 first quarter points and ended with a season high 29.

In an emotional return, Rajon stole the show. Hitting a career best five three pointers and not only did he score a season best he also chipped in five assists and six rebounds.

Dallas is now 5-2 with Rajon in the lineup. They’re quickly trending towards one of, if not THE favorites in the Western conference and nights like these make that believable.
