Transcript Coogs Slide Past Cavs Clinch Return Trip to Title Game A Freshman Greg Anderson goes over Olden Polynice. Akeem Olajuwon said that "the elbow" was not going to be a revenge factor in the game. Olden Polynice, the freshman who pushed his luck once too many times, agreed. As it turned out, this game could have used something like "the elbow" to liven it up. With Virginia coach Terry Holland instituting a four-man sag whenever Olajuwon got the ball and Guy Lewis refusing to bring his Cougars out of their dense pack 2-3 zone, it seemed as if both teams were playing for the last shot from the opening tipoff. Unfortunately, the fans were stuck with one of the lowest scoring games in the history of the final four as Houston prevailed 49-47 in overtime. Lewis' refusal to bring the Cougars out of the tight zone was frustrating for Houston fans, many of whom were wondering if this game was going to be a rerun of the 1983 title game. Lewis seemed determined to allow underdog Virginia a chance to stay in the game. Indeed, when Virginia got the ball back with 15 seconds to go in regulation play and the score tied 43- 43, it seemed as if the nightmare was going to repeat itself. Houston still showed a reluctance to foul, but Guy Lewis proved that his game plan was a good one as Olajuwon patted an Othell Wilson pass into the arms of Reid Gettys. The Coogs almost blew it in overtime, falling behind quickly, but they clawed their way back. Ricky Winslow slammed home an Olajuwon miss for a 49-45 lead and the victory. Guy Lewis showed a lot of discipline in this game, sticking with his game plan and keeping his players on a tight leash. The win was Lewis' 562nd career triumph and established a team record for most wins in a season (32). — Jim Bradley A Co-Captain Young lets his patented jumper fly. Sports —117
