Transcript DON C H A NET HOUSTON CHRONICLE SECTION PORTS I 6 THURSDAY, JANUARY 11; -l«iH Chaney: Long Arm of Court BY JERRY WIZIG Unlike the Venus de Milo, Don Cnaney owes a lot to his arms. So does the University of Houston's basketball team, high-rolling along on a 16-game winning streak. Chaney, the Cougars' 6-5 backcourt gem, is piling up more steals and more assists than ever as UH travels td its Jan. 20 shootout with UCLA. First, however, there is the matter of a Saturday afternoon date with West Texas State at Delmar Field- house, scheduled for regional television Since his freshman year, Don has been called "Duck" (for Donald Duck, Walt Disney's character), and he has the wing-span to match. His outstretched arms covered 82 inches from finger tip to finger tip when he was a sophomore and some UH opponents will certify they've grown since then. Chaney so far has logged 53 assists (compared to his season total of 79 as a junior). Statistics aren't kept on steals l but "Duck" probably averages four to six per game.. His shooting also has steadily | improved, from 44 per cent accuracy last year to a current 48.4. And that's one department Coach Guy Lewis doesn't > hesitate to discuss, even although he declines comment on UCLA until after Saturday's game. Lewis "agrees, "very definitely, Don's shooting has been more consistent, mainly because he's taking good shots. He's learned to come down the floor and look over the defense for the open man rather than pass off or shoot on the run." "I'm sure he must be getting more steals," Lewis adds. "People still dribble up close to him because they don't realize- his reach and he keeps taking the ball away. Even when he doesn't steal it clean, he'll tip it to somebody else a lot of times." i Like most high school players, Chaney concentrated on scoring rather than defense at Baton Rouge McKinley. Then after entering UH with Elvin Hayes, he noticed something. "During my freshmen year," he said, "my hands seemed to get quicker. That's when I began working at stealing the ball. I started thinking more about defense." Since then, Chaney has refined the technique to an art, and Lewis calls him "the key to our press." After last year's victory over Kansas in the NCAA Mid-West Regional (on the Jayhawks' home court), All America Jo Jo White called Chaney the best backcourt man he'd see all year. "He's a really great guard," White said. At 215 pounds Chaney is strong enough to Join the infighting on the backboards (he's averaging 6.4 rebounds besides his 13.1 points), and he can muscle in baskets on rebound shots. "I concentrate on the ball' going down to the floor," Chaney describes the basics of becoming a thief in short pants. "Last year I used to just charge for the ball, and I was drawing fouls. Now I wait until I see the ball heading to the floor on the dribble. "Or I'll get down low and let the man with the ball get close within my reach. Some guys get careless and don't protect the ball with their body so that you can just reach out and slap it away J Chaney affirms, "I owe a lot to my arms." Instead of the scoring column, Lewis glances at the column labeled "Assists" to conclude, "I know we're playing much better than we were at this time last year. B*t I don't feel we have as mifch raw talent in depth, from one through 11 men." The most encouraging aspect to Lewis, is, "We're looking for the open man as evidenced by the number of assists (318 compared to 500 for all of ,1 a s t year). "That's the reason we're playing smoother—because everybody is passing the ball. Any time your center ge(s seven assists in one game (as Ken Spain did in the 118-81 win over Centenary last week), that means .you're working together. "No one on this team is hungry for points. Elvin (Hayes) is scoring a lot but he's also passing the ball. They're team conscious, that's what I'm trying to say."
