Transcript Phi Slama Jama II The 1984 season was supposed to open with retribution. The Cougars would destroy the North Carolina State Wolfpack before a national TV audience, and, in so doing, avenge the humilation of Lorenzo Charles' title-winning, in-your-face dunk in the 1983 NCAA Championship Game. Hah. The Return of the Jama fell flat on its face as the PPack stunned Houston 76-64. Some little bitty guy named Spud Webb took over the show, and the overconfident Coogs rediscovered the magic. Wolfpack magic. The Cougars came home to Hofheinz Pavilion, licking their wounds. Again. The nationally ranked Kansas Jayhawks were waiting, and Houston let off some steam against a group of tall, slow white guys with zits and stupid looks on their faces. Houston won 91-76 before another national TV audience on the strength of Michael Young's 25 points and freshman center Greg Anderson's exceptional performance. Anderson, 6-10, came through for the Cougars when Coach Lewis pulled Olajuwon, who was in foul trouble early in the second half. He scored eight points, blocked one shot and pulled down nine rebounds in 15 minutes of playing time. Mississippi State was next. The Coogs hammered out win No. 2 at a very deliberate pace. Young led all scorers with 19 points to carry Houston to a 68-62 win. In the Cougars' next outing against Biscayne, junior forward Benny Anders, who was removed from the starting lineup following N.C. State II, had his finest game of the year. His 19 points off the bench provided the spark in Houston's 69-51 domination of the Bobcats. Benny bamboozled the Louisiana State Tigers with some slam dunk pyrotechnics, showboating for his home-state crowd. But Young put the gun to their heads with 15 second- half points, canning his ever- familiar baseline jumper several times in the stretch. Houston looked bored while executing the next two wins, both at Hofheinz, over St. Mary's and Princeton. UH dekrelnificated (i.e. completely and utterly disrupted every phase of the game) Texas Lutheran 129-65 in the most lopsided victory of the year. The scene was reminiscent of the '83 team's ability to totally dominate and ultimately annihilate the opposition. Akeem put it to the University of California at Santa Barbara, pumping in 35 points to pace the Cougars to a 89-79 road win. The Coogs left sunny California for Hawaii while most of the mainland was in the deep freeze. Phi Slama Jama blew past the Louisville Cardinals 73-70 in the first game of the Chaminade Western Airlines Classic, on national TV. The championship game of the tournament, however, came directly on the heels of the defection of Benny Anders and Braxton Clark from the squad. They quit because they felt they weren't getting enough playing time. The result was a 68-61 loss to Fresno State and a lot of negative publicity that haunted the team for weeks by disrupting team unity. — Brian Allen Sports — 101
