Transcript Cougar Basketball In The Twilight Zone... Texas Tech, Turbulent Tournament Troubles Team lie may just be a sophomore, but Jessie Drain started in almost all the games this season. He was able to score 21 points on Texas during the tournament. Photo by Thomas Nguyen, (center) In the infamous Texas Tech game, David Diaz did manage to score a team leading 20 points. He lead the team in free throws with 140 out of 172 or 81.4 percent. Photo by Thomas Nguyen, (below) An inadvertent jump ball, courtesy Charles "Bo" Outlaw.

The Houston Post reported that Bo Outlaw seemed to know the Cougars weren't going to get a bid to the NCAA's, but who could have predicted the Cinderella story of the Tech Red Raiders. Outlaw is ready to go home now... Photo by Thomas Nguyen, (lower center) U nder Will Flemmond's arm, Anthony Goldwire tries to get his shot in. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. (lower right) Jam **•" WKtyl. • "* ♦ life -<0 \ M The Southwest Conference tournament started with a scream. The Cougars, ranked third going in were ready to make their move, to try to win the tournament for the second year in a row. Unfortunately, in the first game against the Aggies, the A&M coach Tony Barone couldn't keep his whining down. "They were going to do anything they could to win the game-cheap shots, hard fouls," said forward Derrick Smith. The game was marred by four technical fouls, a mess of bad words between Barone and Foster, and an ejection of-get this-the A&M announcer, for screaming at a referee. Even more bizarre, P/ A.vtt Ik. \ Anthony Goldwire was ejected after an altercation with an A&M player, and another A&M player took a swipe at Coach Foster. "He had been getting his little cheap shots in all game," Goldwire said about David Edwards, the A&M guard. "I left the floor (to make a pass) and he shoved me into the camera people. I had to let him know (about it). I walked up in his face and didn't like what he said. I shoved him in the head. It was a bad thing to do." "We don't have any comments on the sideshow," said Foster. It appeared as though everyone was out of control, but the Cougars took the game easily, 84-64. No whining here. The next game, against Texas also had that "Twilight Zone" quality to it. One of the players from Texas was kept out of the game, reportedly, he didn't pass the random drug test. Beyond that though, you might have thought both teams were on drugs with the sluggish play. The Cougars got off to a slow start, but they caught up and Jessie Drain threw in a couple of three-pointers to give the Cougars the lead at the half. Again, the Corgs got off to a slow start going 11 minutes before scoring a field goal, but caught up and defeated the Longhorns 58-50. Then the unbelievable happened. Texas Tech took the championship from the Cougars, 88-76. "They shot the lights out," said Coach Foster. 'They took it from the very beginning. We were never able to get control of anything." Charles "Bo" Outlaw sat on the bench for nine minutes after his first foul, and the team as a whole could only shoot 40 percent compared to Tech's 54percent. The loss cost the Cougars more than just the SWC title. The Cougars were also snubbed by the NCAA nominating committee who chose SMU and the Texas Tech lock to go to the Big Dance. UH and Rice had to opt for the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). The Cougars had to pack up and hit the road for UT-E1 Paso. The Miners, who had won the NCAA title in 1968, were ready, and willing to beat the Cougars, 67-61. The true end to the Pat Foster era was in the works before the UTEP game even started. Coach Foster had already been offered the head coaching position at Nevada- Reno. After the loss to UTEP, Foster took the position and left Houston with a successful 142-73 record over seven years. The Cougars will have to use former assistant coach, Alvin Brooks, to their advantage as their new head coach, and try to stay out of the Twilight Zone in 94.-Michael Edwards 154 Sports Basketball 155
