No. 1 Houston puts new top ranking up against Norfolk State

Houston will take the court as the nation's top-ranked team for the first time in nearly 40 years Tuesday when the Cougars host Norfolk State.

Houston (6-0) ascended one spot by receiving 45 of 63 first-place votes in the Associated Press Top 25 poll of national media. North Carolina (5-2), which had been No. 1 all season, dropped all the way to 18th after absorbing losses last week to Iowa State and then-No. 18 Alabama.

"It's not like we went online and applied for it and waited for a response back. We've been working for this," Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said. "But remember, it's a rental. You don't own it. You're just renting it because someday, somebody else is going to be No. 1."
