Transcript i##i,S>'*i *_ A Michael Young gets ready to dunk. Ironically, however, it was freshman forward Rickie Winslow who stole the show against Baylor. The 6 foot 8 Winslow had his finest day in college as he scored 18 points (seven out of seven from the field, including three slams), grabbed eight rebounds, had two steals and two assists. The Coogs won their 32nd consecutive SWC game in true Phi Slama Jama style, defeating the Aggies in Hofheinz 87-65 behind Young's career-high 30 points. Alvin Franklin's 13 first-half points led UH to an 11 point lead at the half, 42-31, and Anderson contributed 15 points and six rebounds. But it was Young's show all the way as the Coogs raised their overall record to 18-3. Young continued to be hot against SMU on February 4, hitting 13 of 17 from the field for 26 points as UH won 76-57. The Ponies hit a 14-foot jumper with 26 seconds gone in the game to lead 2-0, but it would be their only advantage as the Coogs put on one of their best defense shows of the season. Olajuwon blocked the first three shots aimed his way, Gettys blocked two and Franklin had three steals as UH built a 34-23 lead at halftime. Franklin continued to be hot offensively witr 18 points, finishing in double figures for the fifth time in six games. He also had a career-high of 10 assists. Coach Guy Lewis got his 550th career win February 9 as the Coogs convincingly defeated hapless TCU for the second time, 76-60, in Fort Worth. They followed two days later with their second win over UT as Olajuwon had his fifth triple-double of the season, scoring 15 points, blocking 11 shots and grabbing 11 rebounds. Winslow contributed 17 points and 12 rebounds in the contest, which the Coogs won 74-63. Tech came to Hofheinz for a rematch of the January 12 game seeking revenge for their earlier 22-point loss, but fared even worse this time as Houston won its 35th consecutive SWC game 78-53. To add insult to injury, the Coogs hit 12 of 13 freethrows to complement Young's 20 points and Olajuwon's 12 rebounds. Young had 16 in the first half to help UH pull out in front 36-25 at the end of the first half. After losing the last four nationally televised games over two seasons, the Coogs finally responded with a nonconference victory against the Virginia Cavaliers, an eventual nemesis in the Final Four. The Cavaliers had the misfortune of not being able to hit anything from the floor, shooting only 38.5 percent and losing 74-65. Sports —105
