Transcript Cougars EEEEEvict Bruins From Unbeaten Ranks I and Number 1 Spot in Polls Number one plus number two equals the basketball game of the year. The Bruins from UCLA, ranked number one and undefeated for 47 straight games, confidently breezed into town. Houston's number two Cougars sat quietly in wait for the Saturday night match in the Dome, knowing that they had everything to win and everything to lose. The cool Coogs, paced by a hot shooting Elvin Hayes, raced to a 46- 43 lead at halftime. The "Big E" had already pumped in 29 points. In the second half, the pressure of the game began to take its toll, as the Cougars hit for only 25 points to the Bruins 26. The real story of the game was the tremendous defensive effort turned in by Ken Spain, Theodis Lee and "E." Their efforts dominated the boards and set up the fast breaks. In the backcourt George Reynolds and Don Chaney provided a very efficient unit. Reynolds put the ball in the hole from the outside, while Chaney applied the pressure to UCLA's guards. In what was one of the finest team efforts for a UH basketball team, it seemed only fitting that the Coogs' finest individual player, the "Big E," should dramatically score the winning- points. Elvin calmly sank two free throws and the roof of the Dome inched into the air with a resounding E!E!E!E! Right, the "Big E" gets a victory ride from an ecstatic crowd in the Dome after beating UCLA. Above, the "Duck" goes high to block Mike Warren's shot. 182 Tom Gribben, left, stretches high into the air to stop Lynn Shackelford's jump shot. Below left, George Reynolds drives, shoots, scores and fouls against Lew Alcindor. And Kenny Spain, below, displays his defensive talent against Alcindor as he knocks away one of Mike Warren's passes intended for Lew. Spain played the greatest game of his career, defensively, against previously unbeaten UCLA. 183
