Transcript SWC Regular Season After the disappointing loss to Fresno State in Hawaii and the defection of Benny Anders and Braxton Clark, Guy Lewis had things to worry about as the SWC season started. He also worried through the first 39:58 of the first game against SMU in Dallas, until Michael Young hit a shot with two seconds left to give Houston a 60-59 victory and their 25th straight SWC win. Four Cougars scored in double figures as UH defeated TCU 81-67 in Hofheinz Pavilion. Michael Young, who averaged 20 points during the SWC season, led the Coogs with 22 points. Franklin added 18 as Houston raised its record to 2-0 in SWC play. Reid Gettys led the team in scoring for the first time as UH defeated Texas 69-58. Gettys hit six of nine from the field and had eight assists in only 27 minutes of action. Texas Tech was no contest as Rickie Winslow scored 13 of the Coogs' first 18 points to bring Houston out to an early 18-7 lead, one they never relinquished. The Red Raiders were able to trim the lead to six at 42-36, but they were not able to get any closer because of Akeem's terrific performance on the boards. Olajuwon pulled down 25 rebounds, a new UH record for a SWC game, and contributed 18 points as the Cougars won easily, 88-66. The Coogs won their second straight road game and went to 5-0 in conference play, 15-2 overall, with a 70-64 win over Texas A&M in College Station. The Aggies were no match for Akeem, who had his fourth triple-double of the season with 27 points, 21 rebounds and 10 blocked shots. Michael Young set a new UH record for starts with 109 as Phi Slama Jama defeated Rice 72-42 in a strong defensive effort. In the second half, the Coogs held the Owls to 16 percent field goal shooting, outscoring Rice 36-15. On Super Bowl Sunday, the fifth-ranked Cougars traveled to Lexington to face fourth- ranked Kentucky in a nationally televised game. Despite jumping out to an early 11-1 lead, Olajuwon fouled out with 6:27 to go in the game and was soon followed by Gettys and Winslow. UH fell 74-67 to drop to 16-3 overall and a number eight spot in the AP poll. After missing eight games Benny Anders was allowed to rejoin the club January 24 (Clark returned six days later), and the Coogs rebounded to defeat Baylor 84-58 as Olajuwon and Young combined to score 38 points. 4 ft* 2- A Akeem Olajuwon grabs No. 21. A Rickie Winslow goes up for the dunk. 104 — Houstonian
