Transcript SWC makes Cougars TRAVEL Th he road to the Southwest Conference Championship was filled with potholes. The first one just happened to be the University of Texas. After a strong non-conference season, it didn't look like the Longhorns would be able to stop the Cougars. Texas didn't even have the services of starting forward Dexter Cambridge, due to the alleged NCAA rule violation. After a tie at the half, the Cougars worked up a 64-61 lead, but Texas slammed and jammed their way to the win 77-69. After a lackluster win against Baylor, the Rice Owls wanted to prove that they are nothing to laugh at. The 'Jungle' (Autry Court) proved to be as wild as ever, but a little concentration helped theCoogs keep their cool as UH won 74-60. Coach Pat Fos- 4*\ M \ ter looked to keep the team focused on the SWC opponents, hoping to gain a NCAA Tourna- mentberth.The focus paid off with a 77-58 stomp of Texas Tech. The Red Raiders were probably already unhappy in Houston, but then they found that their wallets had been stolen in the visitor's locker room. But that's another story TheCougardefensehadbeenoutstand- ing all year, but the offense was coming on strong. "The team is starting to hit their shots," center Charles Outlaw told the Daily Cougar. "I don't know why, they're just starting to hit." The scoring power of Sam Mack saved the team from a loss to the then winless Aggies. In College Station the Aggies tried their best to show they could win, but a 17 point second half ■romp by Mack took away a small Aggie lead to win 69-65. Mack ended the game with 21 points of his own. Then the Horned Frogs decided to join the party. In a game in Fort Worth, TCU took contrqlof the Cougars and won 67-54. The Frogs rough roads for title created a three way race with Texas that would continue through the rest of the season. The Runnin' Horns came Hofheinz Pavilion, and they proved to run the Coogs out of breath playing an uptempo game. The win set Texas up in a tie with TCU for the SWC lead, and the Cougars would have to win the rest of their games, while hoping for a Texas or TCU loss to have a chance at the SWC title. Just another pothole to drive through. "We really looked like a bad ballclub," Foster said. After an easy win over Baylor, Rice came and nearlytookagamefrom the Cougars 86-83 in a last second nail-biter, but then the team had to leave for Lubbock where they barely won a game in overtime, 83- 80. The dizzying tour photo by Abelardo Gil continued with a tough game against A&M at home. A change in defensive strategy gave the Cougars the win and sent the Aggies home. Coach Foster noted that the team had comeoutflat,buttheCougar'sopponents seemed to have no problems getting up for games.'We arenotcatchinganybody flat," saidFoster. "People are just getting ready to play us." The last home game featured TCU as the team worked to clear up the three way tie the conference lead had become. A slow defensive battle ran out the clock and gave the Coogs a 50- 44 win. One last conference win against SMU gave the team a share of the conference championship, as both Texas and UH ended the season with 11-3 records. The team celebrated, clenching the first SWC title for Coach Foster, but it would take some winning ways in the tourney and a drive over a few 1-45 potholes to determine who was best in the SWC.-Michael Edwards o Outlaw slam dunks for two. Outlaw says theat the best player he's ever played against was LSU's Shaquille O'Neal. The 'Shaq' was the first pick in the 1992 NBA draft, so that's really saying something. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. V^oach Pat Foster uses a little positive motivation to rouse his team. 1992 earned Foster his first conference title as head coach. He was also named to the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.
