A big reason why third-seeded MI and No. 6 seed Houston have been as hot as any teams around the country over the past couple months has been because the play of MI sophomore guard Zavier Simpson and Houston senior guard Rob Gray, two tenacious players who haven't backed down from anyone this season.
