The cagers were picked to dominate other SWC competition, and after the non-conference season went so well, who would have predicted that a team picked as number five (SMU) would take the conference. As the Cougars began conference play, they carried a 7-2 record and things were looking bright. They had found a new leader in Anthony Goldwire, who was av ail the momentum they had built up against non-conference opponents. Many players came down with the flu, then the team lost on the road to Texas Tech and SMU, lost by four to Rice at home, then lost again on the road at TCU. The streak had reduced their conference record to 4 and 4. The mountain they had built in the previous three weeks had crumbled into Death Valley. "What we've got here is total collapse," said Coach Pat Foster. "I don't have any solutions at this point. We put on a seven game winning streak, beating their opponents 591-505. The streak included big wins over Texas, Baylor and non-conference foe Louisville. Their first win was over Texas Tech, who started the whole mess in the first place. Unfortunately, a trip to Autry Court at Rice didn't go the Cougar's way as the lost by 11. A last minute missed field goal caused the game to go into overtime, where Rice took over, 89-78. Luckily, the team didn't ex- Feeling Run-Do wn Flu bugs the Cougars against SWC Opponents eraging over 16 points a game, and Charles Outlaw was up to his usual self, leading the team in rebounds every game. The future looked good, and if they could make it through the SWC, they would have a great shot of going to the NCAA tourna- mentbut as the saying goes, don't count your chickens before they hatch. Four games into conference play the Coogs had a 4-0 record. They had made it past two of the tougher teams, Baylor and Texas, and with the weak part of the schedule coming they just might be able to run away and hide. The next four games wouldn't give the Coogs the sweet taste of victory, rather the bitter and horrible sensation of defeat. In a two week period, the Cougars had lost almost can't score and we can't start off every game bricking shots. It's like the flu has killed this team." Anthony Goldwire stirred everything up as he questioned his teammate's drive. We want to win, but I don't think everybody is at the point where we'll do anything to win," said Goldwire. 'The bench is not confident when they come in, and they forget all aspects of practice." Derrick Smith, who suffered a stress fracture during the losing streak, looked at a hard climb after the losses, "What we had before everybody got sick, we're having a hard time getting back to that." Something must have happened after that last loss to TCU the Cougars went on a tear. The team managed to perience the same fall that the earlier Texas Tech loss created. "Coming off the Rice loss, I was pleased we didn't have a downer," said Coach Foster. "The player's weren't moping around or feeling sorry for themselves." The Cougars finished the season by crushing the Horned Frogs by 20, and ending up in third place in the SWC. The Rice game may have cost the cagers the SWC regular season crown. Strangely enough, SMU, not even expected to do well, won the regular season title, leaving early-season contenders Texas and the Cougars looking for a tournament win to have a lock at the "big dance" at the NCAA tournament.- John Silver 150 Sports Basketball 151
