Houston tops Oregon State, reaches 1st Final Four since '84

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Kelvin Sampson stood atop a ladder and yanked loose the remnants of the net from the rim. He turned toward the red-clad Houston fans and started pumping his right fist, the net clutched in that hand the entire time.

Years of building a once-proud program back to prominence, of putting together a formula that was about way more than flashy offense - it all led to this breakthrough moment for Sampson and the Cougars.

Yes, Houston is going back to the Final Four for the first time since the famed "Phi Slama Jama" era after Monday night's 67-61 win against Oregon State.
