Transcript In The Red Paint T. he most crucial moments in basketball always take place in the area immediately under the basket. In every gym in America, this area is usually painted with the school colors. In basketball vernacular, this area is referred to as THE PAINT. Here at UH, it's THE RED PAINT. The Coogs proved to be quite efficient in the paint with Carl Herrera and Craig Upchurch leading the way. UH opened the season with a win at Wichita State and blew Hawaii- Loa away 102-47. The Coogs faced DePaul and sliced them up 65-49. January marked the beginning of SWC play and real basketball began against Arkansas. The Coogs fought toe-to-toe against the Hogs, a team that experts referred to as "the power of the SWC." The match went to the wire and Arkansas edged UH 82-78. The Cougars never had any trouble with the rest of the SWC, with the exception of UT. But, the Hogs proved to be the real nemesis. The Coogs suffered losses to them in both regular season games and in the SWC Tournament. The Longhorns proved to be Houston's only other worthy oppo nent. On January 30, the Coogs played against them in Austin before a very vocal crowd of 13,891. The Coogs pulled it off 102-93. The final regular season game was also against UT. The Coogs got national exposure, as they maintained a 10-game win streak. Over 10,000 fans showed up at Hofheinz and the game turned out to be a classic, as the teams traded baskets in the first half. Second place in the SWC and a favorable seed in the NCAA Tournament was on the line. Carl Herrera came out ready in the third quarter and scored 28 points. The Coogs held off a late UT rally and finally put them away 84-79. "Hard work is how we won the game. We never let up," said Herrera. Coach Foster wasn't as elated. "Although we managed to win tonight, I think UT outplayed us." Foster's biggest concern was for the team not to lose their intensity after the win, for he knew that the Hogs were just around the corner. "I just hope we don't come down off this game and lose that emotional edge," said Foster.-R. Ricardo Sutton D errick Daniels slithers through the Rice defense for two points(top).
