Transcript Cougar Record Not Up to Pre-Season Expectations It was a puzzling, frustrating year. It was a bitterly disappointing vear. Coach Guy Lewis and Cougar fans looked for this to be the best season in history. The top three scorers and rebounders returned from a 21-6 year which had been capped with a trip to the National Invitational Tournament. Lyle Harger was being boomed for All-American. Only guard was a problem and there were adequate replacements there. This was to be Houston's year. But it wasn't. The final total was a very respectable 15-11, but for the first time in three years, Houston was not invited to a post-season tournament. What went wrong? One thing went awry before the season began, the schedule. Almost every team on the list was due to have its best team in years. One, Loyola of Chicago, was to have its best squad ever and prove it with an NCAA championship. The Cougars played four teams who went into the national playoffs and another one invited to the NIT. Ironically, the Cats won three of five games against the NCAA participants, losing only to the two finalists. The guard problem proved more troublesome than expected. Chet Oliver and Reno Lifschutz were juniors but had little playing experience. Eddie Winch and Jack Margenthaler were sophomores. Guard will be a strong point next season but greenness hurt in 1962-63. At mid-term, Folly Malone and Winch were removed from the active list because of grades. DeWayne Bond, weak on defense but an excellent shot, filled in in the clutch. The team lost two games in overtime and four more by four points or less. The breaks that went for Houston the previous year went against it this time. But Harger fulfilled his promise. He set an NCAA record for field goal percentage—65.6%. He tied the UH record for points in a game (50) and broke the one for season's free throws (165). UPI put him on its second All-American team. Jeppesen Field House action finds Jack Margenthaler firing a jump shot from the corner against Tulsa. Reno Lifschutz is on the left. DeWayne Bond is number 50.
