Transcript Cagers start by ROARING through non conference games M I ot since the days of Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler and the rest of Phi Slamma Jamma have the Cougars enjoyed such a successful start. Before entering the conference play the Cougars enjoyed an 11-2 record with reason to hold their heads high. The Cougars knew that they would have to make some major changes in their defense and offense, in order to compete for the conference championship and a place in the NCAA Tournament. Pat Foster added three junior college transfers, Charles Outlaw, David Diaz, and Sam Mack to complement Craig Upchurch, who returned from sitting out the previous year with a back injury, and Derrick Smith. He also brought in freshman Jessie Drain, all factored into the Cougar's early success. "Offensively, this will be the best team that we have had in a long time in Houston," said Foster, before the start of the season. "We will certainly have role players, but we will have real good depth in terms of scoring." Defensively Foster used several defenses to improve the interior defense. "We will use more gambling defenses to put on more pressure on our opponents since we don't have the big seven-foot player in the middle to anchor our defense," said Foster. They started the season off with a tough home opener against Villanova and proceeded to blow them out 79-49. This game was the debut of Outlaw and Mack. Senior transfer Mack, came off the bench with 23 points in just as many minutes to lead the Cougars to a victory over the highly rated Villanova squad. Next on the agenda were the Tar Heels of North Carolina, ranked #6 in the nation by the Associated Press. The first half was probably the best basketball the Cougars had played in five years. At half- time the Coogs were up by 15, but that was not safe against the once national cham- photo by Thomas Nguyen pion, North Carolina. Though lead by Mack's 34 points and Outlaw and Upchurch's tenacious defense, the Tar Heels pulled it out to win by five 65-68. The only other non-conference loss for the Coogs was to Louisville 56-60, and even that was a close game. Along the way, the Cougars won the University of California tournament and beat good teams such as Cal. State. Fullerton, Univ. of Illinois- Chicago, Centenary and the Univ. of St. Louis. In the non conference action the Cougars were lead by seniors Daniels, Up- church and Mack, along with junior Charles Outlaw. Going into conference play, they were on the verge of becoming a top twenty- five team and almost a sure thing for the NCAA tournament-John Silver 124 Sports V^utlaw, Fernandes, and Upchurch all work hard for the rebound. Defense and rebounding were two big strengths of the team.
