Transcript Coogs Fall Short of Summit This time, the script was different. Houston was not the overdog. Coach Guy V. Lewis had performed a minor miracle getting his Cougars to this game. Georgetown, according to the script, should beat the deserving but flawed Cougars. This time, the logical scenario neatly unfolded, and the Hoya's emerged with a 84- 75 win over the outmanned Cougars. Houston played well, but lacking the depth or ex- ploveness of the first edition of Phi Slama Jama, they fell. This was strictly a five man team, with a seldom seen supporting cast. The Hoya's, on the other hand, had so many bit players that it was impossible to tell them apart without a score card. The only variation from the script came when the much an ticipated battle of the big men- never materialized. Georgetown coach John Thompson had freshman Michael Graham guarding Akeem most of the game, freeing Patrick Ewing to roam the baseline. Senior forward Michael Young pumped in several key baskets early in the game as Houston hit their first seven shots and jumped out to a 14-6 lead. Young finished with 18 points to close out a fine four year career. Sophomore point guard Alvin Franklin, unjustifiably called the weak link on the '83 team, showed that he may well be the leading scorer next year as he single handedly kept Houston in the game. Our team acquitted themselves well. They went much farther than they should have, playing without the depth and teamwork needed to become the national champion. This was a working class team that had to struggle for everything it got. It was a human team that had its problems, born of an intense desire to not just succeed, but to be better than the best they could possibly be. And always, always, there was the memory of that last shot, and the driving need to redeem themselves. More than anything else this team wanted to win the title for the coach that they felt they let down the year before. Sadly, it was not to be. Hopefully, Guy V.'s third trip to the championship game will be the charm. — Jim Bradley 118 — Houstoniaa ii*£~*
