Transcript Hoopsters find WINNING 1 here was that feeling that some things are inevitable, like when the strongest UH team in years took the SWC Championship. But the Cougars had to get past several obstacles in the SWC Tournament, held in Dallas' Reunion Arena in March. Especially with four SWC teams having 20-win seasons. Even with this strong of a field, the Southwest Conference was struggling for media attention. With Arkansas playing in the SEC, the conference couldn't muster any top 20 teams. First up was the SMU Mustangs who cranked up to an early lead, but the Coogs rallied to win 73-62. "During the whole game I was thinking about them upsetting us last year," said Derrick Daniels, referring to a tournament loss that cost the team a NC AAbid. "I didn't want to go through that situation again." When you then go up against a over- achieving TCU team that starts with a 24-4 lead early in the first half, you might be th;'iking of starting up the bus, but the Cou- ga regrouped from the slow start and beat the lorned Frogs 87-84 in over time. Make that two overtimes. The game was late enough that night, but t\ i overtimes put the team's bedtime way a. ^r midnight. The worry was that the Cougars wouldn't be rested enough for the midday showdown against the Runnin' Horns of Texas. Texas had already beat the strong Cougar team twice, but both teams had the same win-loss record coming into the championship game. The Coogs were looking forward to the payback of their careers. inevitable in Dallas Texas started with a lead, but failed to keep it as, once again, the team rallied in the second half to take the game 91 -72. Texas tried to come back several times, but to no avail, and the usually complacent UH crowd, with a little coaxing from our team, was finally able to silence the large number of Texas fans, who made way for the door early. "These are the two teams that ended up co-champs of the Southwest Conference," said Daniels. "We wanted to go out and prove that we deserved to be the champs all along." Texas coach Tom Penders said "They just had more gas in their tanks that we did." Penders was the offenders for a record four technical fouls in the game, our own Coach Foster was also a recipient. Sam Mack and Craig Upchurch were named to the all-tournament team and Mack nearly won the Most Valuable Player award, but a ballot mix-up gave that award to Texas' controversial Dexter Cambridge. The NCAA took some notice of the proceedings and placed UH's cagers in Milwaukee for the first round of the NCAA tournament against the Yellowjackets of Georgia Tech. Again, the Cougars fell behind and tried to rally in the second half, but a lack of inside shooting proved to be their downfall. Georgia Tech put on a scoring blitz in the final seconds and stopped Houston's win streak at nine, 65-60. Despitebeingconference champions, the first time since 1984, the Cougars couldn't get that last bit of respect in the nationally televised game, but certainly seniors Daniels, Upchurch, and Mack looked to find an NBA career inevitable.-Michael Edwards photo by Thomas Nguyen Lighting up the SCOREBOARD 132 Sports In your face!
