Transcript Winning Streak Gone Coogs loose thirteen straight There aren't too many people around the University of Houston who can even begin to remember 1959, but that was the last time the basketball team suffered a losing season. That is a string of 35 consecutive winning seasons. The only other basketball programs in the nation that can boast of such phenominal success are UCLA and UNLV. "This has been terribly hard to get used to," said senior center Rafael Carrasco. "Things just haven't fallen into place this year." Things haven't fallen in place anywhere for the Cougars even at Hofheinz Pavilion What has historically been known as a tough place to play for the competition has lost that certain atmosphere. Houston's home record for the season was a paltry 5-7- a far cry from the 1992-1993 home record of 13-1. Although this stab at Cougar pride has been hard to swallow, it has been the least of the team's problems. The most obvious setback was the loss of three major players. Charles "Bo" Outlaw and David Diaz carried the bulk of Houston's offensive production, while Derrick Smith was added force inside. Without them, head coach Alvin Brooks has had to fill the voids with players unfamiliar in those spots. "We have got a few guys who are trying to adjust to new roles on the team," said Brooks. Brooks was referring mainly to Carrasco, who is trying to make the transition a smooth one. With the loss of Outlaw, he has been called on to be more of an offensive force- moving outside and setting screens. During the past seasons Carrasco was virtually used as a key rebounder and an added distraction for opponents. The results have been an uncenter-like .470 shooting percentage and an average of only 7.5 points per game. "(Transition problems) might have been part of (our overall troubles)," said Carrasco. "It seems like we have all the right pieces, but we just haven't put them together." The answer to Houston's problems could very well be sophomore forward Tim Moore. After missing the first six games of the season, Moore finally showed signs of getting in shape against Baylor. He came through with 33 points and 16 rebounds for the night, consequently leading the team in each category. By the end of the season he was top scorer on the team averaging 19.3 points per game. "We have been searching for some type of inside game, and I was very pleased with the way Tim played," Brooks said. Well, the season is over and the numbers speak for themselves. 1959 may be in the back of a few people's minds, but 1993-1994 is fresh in many memories.- Jason Paul Ramirez and Michelle Morgan If only I was a little taller. 6'9" center Rafael Carrasco's season grew stronger every time he stepped out on the court, but it also became shorter with each game. Carrasco had to fill some big shoes this season, and the transition was a bit bumpy at times. But looking back he did a good job.

Unfortunately, they weren't able to capitalize on the hussling efforts of Anthony Goldwire. However, the bright side to this sad season is that UCLA was knocked out of the NCAA tournament by Tulsa in the first round. Photo by Michael Smith . m mm f BBAMOr h 298 # Sports
