Houston Star DaJon Jarreau Bites Cincinnati Player
Houston star DaJon Jarreau bit a Cincinnati player this week.
On Saturday night, the Cougars squared off against the Bearcats on the road.
Through one half of basketball, No. 21 ranked Houston had a 40-30 lead over the opposition.
Early in the second half, the train kind of went off the track.
With six minutes to go in the game and the Cougars up two, Jarreau and Keith Williams both went after a loose ball.
With both players scrambling to recover it, Jarreau seemed to bite Williams on the calf.
It was just as odd a sequence of events as it sounds like.

Jarreau was immediately ejected for the action.
He finished with five points for the day on seven field goal attempts.
He also recorded six assists and four rebounds – albeit along with three turnovers.
Cincinnati went on a big 19-5 run to finish the game and walked away with a 64-62 win.
With the victory the Bearcats moved to 14-7 on the season and 7-2 in AAC play.
That means Cincinnati and Houston are now tied in terms of conference play, and both sit one game off Tulsa who leads the way at 7-1.
Jarron Cumberland ultimately led Cincinnati in scoring with 17 total. He was one of four players to score in double figures for the team today.
