Transcript On To the Tournaments T he Coogs emerged from the final regular season game with an eleven game winning streak. The next challenge was the SWC Tournament. Coach Pat Foster loaded his team up and hit 1-45 north, en route to Reunion Arena in Dallas. The Coogs entered the tourney as the number two seed and faced Rice in the opening round. UH had previously beaten the Owls twice in the regular season. Both times, Rice tried to run with the Coogs; both times they were blown away by UH. This time the Owls tried to slow it down and control the tempo. Carl Herrera took control and scored 25 points and gathered 12 rebounds. The final score: UH 90 Rice 81. Next was the rematch between UH and Texas, which featured the controversial feud between Byron Smith and UT's Louis Blanks. The two teams fought hard all of the way. The Cougars amazingly emerged as the winner, 89-86. As expected, UH and Arkansas ad vanced to the championship game, and the Coogs had extended their winning streak to 13. Arkansas was the team, and they had more depth than most teams in the nation. The Coogs were losers in all previous meetings with the Hogs. Coach Nolan Richardson used his whole squad in a regular rotation. His method was successful because almost every man on his team was a former starter. Richardson called his strategy "40 Minutes of Hell." The Cougars fought through those 40 minutes like the devil himself, but still came up short. The Hogs won the SWC 96-84, but the Coogs were still assured a bid to the NCAA Tourney. The Cougars were matched up with University of California-Santa Barbara in the first round of the NCAA's. The Cougars travelled to Knoxville, Tennessee, of all places. Many experts predicted that Houston would easily put UC-Santa Barbara away. Needless to say, it didn't happen that way. It seemed that Coach Foster's worst nightmare came true. Arkansas' "40 Minutes of Hell" took more steam out of the Coogs than everyone thought. Despite Carl Herrera's 19-point effort, none of the Coogs could get on track. Byron Smith's three-pointers were missed. But these things are overcome with experience. Next time, the Cougars should have that year's worth of NCAA anxiety built up and will explode on their first couple of opponents. Even though the Coogs exited the tournament early with the loss to UCSB 66-70, they still possessed a pretty impressive overall record of 25-8. Their conference record was 13-3, and the Cougar's winning streak of 13 was the second longest in the nation, until the loss to Arkansas in the SWC title game. -R.
