Transcript Basketball COUGARS CONCLUDE SUCCESSFUL SEASON At Peoria the Bradley Braves were ready to avenge their lost honor, and did so with a 90-74 victory over the Cougars. During this game Houston collected 27 personal fouls which contributed greatly to the opponent's victory. UH next encountered a powerful St. Louis team. The Billikens, also seeking revenge, downed the Cougars, 73-62, in St. Louis. In a close game Houston again met the National Champions to be, Cincinnati. On the home court Cougar fans saw Big Red pull up even with the Bearcats late in the game. However, the "Champs" edged into the lead once more and held off the Cougars to win, 85-80. Regular season play ended with Houston's triumph over Tulsa, 89-67. NCAA PLAYOFFS After the successful season the Cougars were chosen as the NCAA Midwest Team-at-Large. Big Red then met Marquett in the Midwestern playoff game. In this game the Cougars took the lead early and kept it all the way to win 77-61. It was a rousing victory for the Cougars as they advanced further than any previous Cougar team toward the National Championship. The NCAA tourney in Kansas, however, did not prove profitable for Houston. The first night of the playoffs saw Houston fall to the powerful Kansas State 75-64. In the final game the university's cage season, Texas Tech nosed out the Cougars 69-67. MOLCHANY CONNECTS for a goal after maneuvering through Tulsa's defense. ADDING TWO more points to the Cougar's score is Jack Thompson. ALL-AMERICAN Phillips aims his jump shot over the head of a Cincinnati player.
