Transcript Hamood and Hayes Lead Run and Shoot Coogs to 100 Point Scoring Average and 23-6 Season Led by senior guard and co-captain Joe Hamood, and splendid sophomore center Elvin Hayes, the UH Cagers swept to a record year. The Coogs won 23 of 29 starts—a school record—and totaled 2201 points in ~22 regular season games to become the first school in major college history to average 100 points per game. Hayes, known to UH fans by the short but revered title of "E," led the way with a season output of 789 points. Along with his defense and a total of 490 rebounds—also a record— Hayes established himself in a single season of varsity play as the Cougars' finest big man ever. Hayes won second team All-America honors from a leading sports journal, Sporting News. Stocky Hamood handled the backcourt chores admirably and advanced to second in all-time school scoring with a 1237 career production. Both Hamood and Hayes were named to the NCAA District Six All- America squad. The high-scoring duo weren't the only stars, however. Wayne Ballard was a left- handed wizard when it came to scoring. He hit 52% of his shots from the field to rank third in scoring. Ballard's timely sniping broke open many a game during the fast- paced season. Leary Lentz and Don Chaney completed the starting lineup. Lentz, a consistent re- bounder, gobbled up the errant caroms which Hayes did not spear, and moved into the leaders in school rebound columns. Chaney, only a soph, harrassed opponents continuously, leading the Cougar defensive press. Gary Grider, a reserve guard, earned the rank of sixth starter. His cool play provided a valuable second wind in many close contests. Rabid fans supported the team throughout the season. Swelling attendance forced many fans to be turned away from games at the ticket gate: As the year progressed, cheers of "E,M ME,M "E," turned to "We want a fieldhouse," when the fans sensed victory. At the season's end, the administration announced that in future years the Coogs would play in their own field- house, which will have a seating capacity of at least 10 thousand. Don Chaney leaves the Aggies1 Eddie Dominguez in his wake as he leads the Cougar fast- break to two points in the Bluebonnet Tournament at Rice University gym. 164
