Transcript Upchurch.. An interview with the leader JPORTS TALK U, H basketball player Craig Upchurch was a junior majoring in psychology. For the past three seasons, the forward from St. Louis, Missouri has electrified Cougar fans with displays of dazzling dunks and layups off the fast break. Now, for the first time in his college career, Upchurch got a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament. In early March,Upchurch's performance in the 1990 SWC Tournament earned him a spot on the SWC All Tournament Team, with teammate Carl Herrera and Arkansas' Oliver Miller, Todd Day and Lee Mayberry. This made it two years straight that Upchurch was selected. The Interview: Congratulations on making the SWC All Tournament Team. "Thanks, I put my all into it." Even though you lost to Arkansas, how (did) you feel about going to the NCAA Tournament? "I (felt) real good. It was our first time in the tournament and that was the most exciting thing to me. I think Kelvin Smith has been before, when he played with Minnesota, but other than that, nobody on our team had ever gone to the tournament." What happened in the Arkansas game? "That was a fatigue game. We had to play Rice. We didn't know what they were going to do. Then we had the late game with Texas. Arkansas had some rest. It's hard to play when you have played a late game and then have to play relatively early. If we would have played around seven or eight, it probably would have been a different story. It would have probably come down to a last second shot." What do you like to do in your spare time? "A lot of things. Listen to music. When that's over, I like to go somewhere and get away. I like to go to the beach if I get a chance." How did you get to UH from St.Louis? (Laughing): "Well, UH was my first choice, but my mother wanted me to stay home, so I was going to go to St. Louis U. They told me I would have to go to summer school in order to get in, and I didn't want to do that, so I come to Houston." Have you ever regretted coming here? "No, not at all. The people down here are real friendly. My brother is down here now, and that makes it better. He's into rap music. He doesn't have an album yet but I hope he does well." Has basketball always been your favorite sport? "Well, I first played football. I played quarterback and safety so I could get my licks in. Then I played baseball for a while, but it was kind of boring. I didn't start playing basketball until the seventh grade." Do you remember the first time you dunked? "Yeah, I was in the seventh grade. It was in warm-ups, and I wanted to try and see if I could. I was 5'9" and I think I was more shocked than anybody. All of my teammates wanted me to do it over." What did you do in the off season? "I played in a summer league in Chicago with Maurice Cheeks and Terry Cummings. I didn't really get a chance to meet them, but I shook their hands, and they said they liked the way I played." -Interview by Tom Fontaine When you talk about small forwards, Upchurch is among the top five or six in the country.-Coach Pat Foster This is the best team I have ever been associated with.-Coach Pat Foster „ ?9 id you know. . .
