Transcript Phooey On 'Prophets'! Coogs Make Strong NCAA Grown Bid Hayes And Co. Lose UCLA War But Win Battle With Alcindor Calling up private stores of wisdom and foresight, many experts prophesied that UH would not last long in the NCAA tournament. This seemed probable after UH barely eased by New Mexico State, 59-58, in the qualifying round. When Houston met third-ranked Kansas, it was predicted a cinch for Jojo White and crew to win with their outside shooting. But Don Chaney gave UH an outside threat and Elvin Hayes played superb defense. Kansas folded and fell, 66-53. Southwest Conference champion SMU came next. With four minutes left SMU rallied to tie the game, 71-71, but UH kept its cool and won, 83-75. Coming into the finals UH was the closest it had ever come to a NCAA crown. UH drew UCLA the first night. UCLA was hot and cold. UH was just cold. Hayes outrebounded and outscored Lew Alcindor but the rest of the Bruins took over for a 73-58 UCLA win. In the last tournament game North Carolina never had a chance for third place as Ken Spain and Hayes dominated the scoring and rebounding. Third best in the nation, the 1966-67 Cougars had made fools of the prophets of doom and set a new school record with a 27-4 mark. Standing almost flat-footed UCLA's giant center Lew Alcindor still presents a formidable obstacle to a soaring Elvin Hayes. Alcindor blocked several of the Big "E's" shots but Hayes outscored him 25 to 19. Below, Don Chaney challenges a UCLA guard as the Cougars apply the press. 168
