Transcript Ever wonder where many U.H. professors spent their fair than the usual pick-up playground games," said lunch breaks last year? Who would have thought of going to Garrison gym to find them playing basketball? They called it the NBA, or the Noontime Basketball Association. At noon every weekday students could find the faculty, staff and alumni players dukin' it out between shirts and skins. They seemed to find the matches a great way of exercising, relaxing and just having a great time outside of the work place. "It's not boring like a lot of other excercises," said communications professor Ted Stanton. The game worked by two simple rules. The first rule was that the first five players to show up are shirts and the second five are skins. Once there were ten people present, the game got underway and they played until one of the teams made 10 baskets. If players five more came then they went in and played for the losing team. If less than five came then the members of the losing team participated in a shoot-out which determined who else got to play. The losers of the shoot-out sat out a round and the winners stayed in with the new players. The other rule was that the players called their own fouls instead of the players from the other team. This way there was little fighting and the players were forced to be honest. "I think those two rules make it more fun and more Yep, i got this one! The shirts go for yet another score to try and one-up the skins in a noontime game. The players felt like the games were good for excercise. -photo by Hoang Nguyen Professor Stanton. This history of the NBA was quite interesting as well. Around 1968 some engineering instructors would get together and play basketball off campus either in the morning or the evening. Marvin Reichle of the physical education department called these players and asked them if they wanted to join other faculty and staff members at noon in Garrison Gym. From then on the gym was reserved for the players of the NBA to blow off some steam between classes. Many alumni and some students have played with them as well. For instance, All American Elvin Hayes, UH past players Olie Taylor, Clay Holster, Lyndon Rose and the professional NBAs Steve Newcomb have all graced the UH NBAs court. Hakeem Olajuwon (in his soccer days as a goalie) played with the NBA before he was heavily aquainted with basketball. Maybe that was what inspired him to play the game! Professors had lives,too The faculty blew of steam and the alumni found time to participate in campus activities. Students should have kept in mind that between noon and one every day their instructors were off playing basketball. -Michelle Lehmann Let me pass! Players try to dodge each other to score the tenth goal before they go back to work. Teachers felt like the games helped them blow off the steam that students don't know they have. -photo by Hoang Nguyen Noontime Basketball Association
