Transcript Basketball has its moments The 1979-80 Cougar basketball season can be described as not the best and not the worst, but as a season that had its moments. It all started in December, less than a month after the season began, when the Cougars lost the Bluebonnet Classic in the Summit for the first time in 17 years. The Cougars beat Niagra in the first game, 99-89, but lost an overtime heartbreaker to Southern Cal, 86-85 the next night. Anybody who watched the nationally televised game, or occupied a seat in Hofheinz Pavilion could ever forget the Coogs' late-season dramatic 90-84 win over the University of Arkansas. It was the first triple overtime game in UH history. The Coogs went on to win two conference games in a row, against TCU and Baylor at Waco. It was the first time the Coogs had beaten Baylor in the Bears' home court. Then came the shocker against Rice at Autry Court where a much-improved Owl team defeated the Cougars for the first time in the 10- year history of playing each other. The Coogs bounced back against Rice in the first round of the Southwest Conference tournament two weeks later, but were trounced, 67-47 by Texas in the quarterfinals the next week in San Antonio. It was the first time since 1976 UH failed to advance to the tournament semifinals. Freshman guard Rob Williams was a shining moment unto himself. He was only the fourth first-year player to start at guard under Coach Lewis in 24 seasons. The 6-foot-2 Milby product was also the first first-year player to lead the Coogs in scoring since Louis Dunbar averaged 21.1 per game in 1972-73. He also led the team in assists (127). It's no surprise that Williams was named to honors by the Associated Press and the United Press International and made all- SWC teams. Rob's cousin, Kenneth "Juice" Williams, graduated this year but not without setting a few records of his own before he left. Juice holds the UH SWC career record for most field goal attempts (721), plus UH career SWC free throw percentage mark (78.6, 114-145). He finished fifth on the all-time UH scoring, field goals and assists list. Another moments provider was sophomore forward Larry Rogers, who had played basketball in the Army. Rogers, who earned honorable mention UPI AII-SWC selection, averaged 18.3 points per game, and did not miss one second of play in six of the last seven games. The 1979-80 Cougars were a young team, inexperienced in playing together (five new starters), yet they finished the season at 500 (14-14 record). They weren't the SWC champions as Texas A&M, but they were the best .500 ball team around. Chances are the coming seasons will not have just moments but a champion to go with it. * i. ■■ m * ' ^J^ "vT| J V* mTm ~* Ei P^c3 >m^J iJM ■« - I 4 T * 1 w AHS f J i | *~j. wKE Marshall Sauls stuffs one during the Coogs' 99-89 victory over Niagra in the 1979 Bluebonnet Classic.
