Transcript Season It was a story-book season for the '64-'65 UH Cagers, from the moment Guy Lewis asked his team for at least 17 wins, until they finished with an 18 to 8 regular season record. What happened in between those two points of reference constitutes breath-taking comebacks, spectacular last second drives, and a tremendous display of desire to win. December showed all too plainly that the Coogs were not working too well as one unit, but a number of the games displayed a meaningful potential for a great season. The first opportunity that paid off in big dividends came in Fort Worth and the first match with TCU. Tied 33 to 33 at the half, UH downed the Frogs 67 to 62 for a win they just HAD to have. Jim Jones later said, "You could tell we were fired up when we came out (after the half). Everybody was dunking the ball, even Gary Grider (Coog's 6' 1" guard). "The hustle, that's what did it" said Grider. Joe (Hamood) was driving all over the floor and Jack Margenthaler was so keyed up, he even got in a little fight and that's the first time I can ever remember Jack doing anything like that." At the Bluebonnet Bowl Classic in mid-December, the Coogs started letting local folks know that they were going to go places. They dumped Auburn 50 to 48 and Texas A&M 59 to 49. The Coogs ended their December agenda on a sad note—dropping one to Penn State 59 to 57 at the Motor City Classic in Detroit. By the time January was only a day old, the Coogs had rung up 116 points against Trinity's 79, and when, two days later, they downed Oklahoma City, some critics began to suspect voo-doo action on the part of Guy Lewis as he nervously chewed his polka-dotted towel during the games. But less than a week later, Notre Dame side-stepped UH, to romp through with a 110 to 80 win. This loss didn't harness the desire however; the Coogs went on to win their next nine games, four with 100 point breakers. In a heart-breaking loss, a strong Miami team downed the Coogs 103-91, and Oklahoma City showed revenge instead of hospitality to the visiting Coogs in their last season game, dealing them a 85 to 79 loss. Making a lay-up shot look like an excerpt from Swan Lake, Joe Hamood sinks 2 against TCU. Ed Winch, (left) is second in line for retrieving a game ball in the Southwestern game. Lou Perry (34) comes in for a hand in the action. 255
