Transcript SWC Classic History, V & VI **rowfl SWC CLASSIC V — MARCH 1,1980 (HEMISFAIR ARENA) TEXAS A&M 52, ARKANSAS 50 SAN ANTONIO — It may have been the first year in San Antonio for the Southwest Conference Post-Season Classic, but the championship game was the same old story. For the fourth time in the five-year history of the tournament, the championship was decided by two points or less. This time it was No. 1 seed Texas A&M downing No. 2 seed Arkansas, 52-50. For the second straight year a record crowd attended the final as 15,728 fans watched the Aggies capture their first Post-Season Classic crown. Prior to 1980 the only other time Texas A&M had appeared in the championship game was in Classic I, losing to Texas Tech 74-72. This time, however, the Aggies and ' 'The Wall'' left with the championship trophy and a NCAA Tournament bid. A&M Head Coach Shelby Metcalf referred to his front line of 6-11 Rudy Woods, 6-7 Vernon Smith and 6-6 Rynn Wright as ' The Wall of College Station," and that "Wall" helped the Aggies to a 14-2 regular-season record and SWC title. The three combined for 22 points, 19 rebounds and three blocked shots against the Razorbacks, but a 6-2 guard by the name of David Britton was the Aggie who stood the tallest. Britton, voted the Classic's Most Valuable Player, poured in 23 points, grabbed four rebounds and handed out three assists, and almost single-handedly beat the Razorbacks. His free throws in the game's closing minutes sealed the victory for the Aggies. Britton finished the day connecting on 6-of-13 from the field, but a more important 11-of-13 from the free throw line. The 18th-ranked Aggies could convert on just 16-of-39 field goal attempts, but their 20-of-28 showing at the free throw line proved to be the difference. Arkansas went to the free throw line only nine times, hitting eight.

But the clock finally struck midnight for Texas against Houston. The Longhorns, the lowest seed to ever advance to the championship game, fell short against Houston, 84-59, as the Cougars defeated Texas for the Classic title for the second time in three years. Sophomore guard Rob Williams scored 37 points and handed out six assists in powering the Cougars to an easy victory and the automatic invitation to the NCAA Tournament. Williams finished with a 13-of-19 showing from the field and a perfect 11-of-11 from the free throw line. Williams' 37-point effort ranked second on the Classic's all-time single-game scoring list. Houston shot a blistering 63.6 percent from the field, hitting 35-of-55 attempts while also outrebounding the Longhorns 36 to 24. Center LaSalle Thompson was the only bright spot for Texas with his 27 points and nine rebounds. Mike Wacker was the only other Texas player to reach double figures with 10 points. Houston freshmen Clyde Drexler and Michael Young combined for 30 points, 18 rebounds, five assists, six blocked shots and four steals. Drexler alone accounted for 15 of the Cougars' 36 rebounds.
