Transcript Head Coach Pat Foster, in his first season with the Coogs, disagrees with the ref., as was often the case. Photo by Darrell Hutto. Coogs Divided By Experience In his first season with the Coogs, Coach Pat Foster brought the team through a flickering season, firing up for some games, but dying out in others. This pattern was centered around two players, top scorers Greg Anderson and Ricky Winslow. Seniors Anderson and Wins- low, each with three years of varsity experience, were the primary factors on the Coogs' scoreboard. Either they were hot, or the Coogs were not. The next four top scorers, Junior Center Rolando Ferriera, Sophomore Guard Tim Hobby, Junior Guard Tom Grant, and Freshman Guard Darrell McArthur have each had only one year or less of Varsity experience. The team finished with a 18- 12 overall record and a fourth place 9-7 record in the SWC. This is significantly impressive for a season of transition with a new coach, however for many fans it was a disappointment. An early five-game winning streak in non-conference play, (which included a 41 point game high for Anderson) raised hopes, but proved to be only a flash in the pan for a team divided by experience. In the games that followed, Anderson and Winslow inevitably failed to dominate the boards while the others consistently scored, but could not make up for the slumps. In three games, Winslow scored six points or less in over 20 minutes of play. Anderson, as well, had a shooting slump of only four points during 37 minutes of play against Baylor. When SWC opponents were able to hold Anderson to 15 or less and could slow Winslow's fast breaks, the Coogs were doomed. They did manage, though, to pull off a 9-7 conference record. The Coogs went on to beat Texas 59-49 in the SWC Championship, but lost 54-52 to Baylor in the semis. With their fourth place standing, they fell into a NCAA tournament bid after UCLA defeated Washington. However, UH lost to Kansas 55-66 in the first round at Atlanta. At the season's end, Anderson's phenomenal defensive skills tallied 318 rebounds and 56 blocked shots. He also led the Coogs in scoring 546 points this season. Winslow was next in scoring with 384 points, which included 36 slams. This figure is 59* of the team's total slam dunks this season. Other Cougars with lower, yet consistent totals were equally impressive in other areas. Ferriera was third in shooting with 293 points and proved to be equally valuable defensively with 45 blocked shots. Darrell McArthur contributed a total of 93 assists and Tim Hobby shot 86.2% from the foul line. These are expected to be the consistent, more experienced backbone next season, building a little depth as Anderson and Winslow have both finished their eligibility. — Darrell Hutto 100
