Transcript Cougars Won Big and Often, Missed Greatness in Narrow Losses •w«i;) UH began the season on the road against tough opposition, and the travel proved costly. The Coogs dropped a close one to San Francisco, got swamped at Salt Lake City by a stealthy Brigham Young team, then came as close to home as College Station to lose a heart-breaker to the Aggies by a scant five points. Once at home the Cougars set a winning tack that was to be altered only three times in their remaining games. After winning the home opener against Wisconsin, UH romped through the Bluebonnet Tournament, trouncing LSU and gaining a revenge victory from the Aggies. Now hitting mid-season stride, the Cougars continued to win by big margins. They dropped nationally ranked Providence, a well-disciplined squad led by a fabulous guard Jim Walker. At the Sugar Bowl Tourney in New Orleans, the Coogs turned sporadic and let Maryland slip to a one-point win. The next night the run- and-shoot outfit from Houston began a fourteen-game winning streak against Auburn. The victory skein included two wins against a powerful Tulsa squad, another defeat of perennial enemy Texas A&M; lopsided decisions over Centenary, Southwestern, Miami, and a 152-point out put against Texas Wesleyan. Dayton rocked the Cougars from their lofty perch in a contest at New York's Madison Square Garden. Sophomore forward Don May pushed Dayton to a huge lead as Houston wandered clumsily about the court. In the second half, the Coogs fired back against an insurmountable Dayton lead. At the game's close, UH was only two points back, but the loss erased Houston hopes for finishing the season ranked in the nation's top ten teams. After impressive victories over Portland and Loyola of New Orleans, the Cougars received an NCAA Tournament bid. At Wichita, Kansas, the Coogs dispensed with an able Colorado State team to gain a berth in the NCAA West Coast regionals at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. Houston drew Oregon State as a first round opponent. The Beavers proved too much as UH had another slow-starting night. Oregon State edged the Houston- ians 63-60 with consistent play in a slow, deliberate ballgame. Eliminated from the tournament, the Cougars came back to end the year on a high note, beating the University of the Pacific in a fast-scoring contest by a 102-91 margin. Agile and persistent on defense, Don Chaney attacks Miami's Junior Gee. The result, UH ball-out-of bounds. Chaney's harassing genius frustated the opposition all season. Joe Hamood and Rick Apolskis show the enemy the way it's done, as both contribute points to the Cougar cause.
