Transcript Cougar Basketball A * Big Time Competition While the Cougar Brass watches on, David Diaz takes the ball past his Louisville defender. The Home game against the 22nd-ranked Cardinals was one of the most exciting all season. Photo by Thomas Nguyen, (center) Ljharles Outlaw slams another vicious dunk.

At the beginning of the season, UH's non-conference schedule looked like the beast that would keep them, if anything could, from the NCAA tournament, but the beating they gave DePaul soon put an end to those feelings. DePaul, which had won 20 games in each of the past six years, was expected to soundly defeat the Coogs since it was played in Chicago. But Houston came at them with a barrage of blows that led to a 82-65 win and opened some eyes across W0 (i "*B m _ H ^g HP *vm the nation. "We saw two different teams on the court tonight," said DePaul coach Joey Meyer. "We never really got it going and they got on a roll and we couldn't stop them. They played so confidently, and we got tentative and then we panicked." The next stop was against the fifth rated team in the nation, North Carolina. UH knew that the odds wore against them because they lacked size and experience, but that didn't stop them from attacking the basket. After trailing by as much as 23 points in the second half, UH mounted a run and put a scare into NC coach Dean Smith. Even with the late run UH lost the game 84-76. "Anytime you beat a team like UH, even at home, you have to be pleased," Coach Smith said. "Even with the big lead Houston never backed down. They kept coming, backing three's in that stretch. They are a good team and are very quick." After the loss to NC, UH's next large opponent was UCLA. They had to travel out to Los Angeles to play the 11th rated Bruins which was considered the 25th anniversary of the classic match-up between Lew Alcindor (later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) and Elvin Hayes (the Big E). They could have used the Big E because they lost 87-78 due to poor defense. "Our defense was nonexistent today," former coach Pat Foster said. "That was the worst defense I've ever put on the floor. Our press kept us in the game, but we gave up too many easy basket." Probably the biggest win of the year came against the Louisville Cardinals, rated 22nd by the Associated Press. The game was going well for the Coogs, but with 7:10 remaining and ;i lour point lead, Charles Outlaw fouled out, leaving the bur den on freshman Jermaine Johnson, who had played only 84 minutes all season. He responded by playing like a senior, scoring six points and pulling down five rebounds. He even hit a pair of crucial free throws with under two minutes left, sealing the coffin for the Cardinals, giving UH a 89-81 win. "I didn't look at the situation (taking Outlaw's place). I just went out and played as if it was practice," Johnson said. "I just took those same habits out on the floor." That win, along with eight others, propelled UH to a 10-2 non-conference record. Their only losses were against two highly ranked teams which made the squad look as if they were made for the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, the Cougars played poorly in the SWC or they would have had a sure bid to the tournament, and probably a good seeding.-John Silver 146 Sports Basketball 147
