Transcript UH UH 85 Texas A&M 63 107 Texas A&M 66 1 ST GAME Cougar Cagers ushered in their 1954-55 season by opening the new Texas A&M field house with a rousing 85-63 triumph. Don Boldebuck, seven foot Cougar giant made his debut by hitting 24 points for scoring honors. U. of H. cagers hit on 37% of their shots, with reserves playing most of the second half. 2ND GAME The U of H set a new school scoring mark and handed the Texas Aggies the worst whipping in their long history all on the same night by a lop sided 107-66 margin. The Aggies used football and wrestling tactics as they went after "Bolde" and held him to 15 points. But, the price they paid was an embarrassing defeat and brought down the ire of the crowd. UH UH Lopez drives past "slugging Annie" for two points. 102 Sam Houston 89 108 Sam Houston 100 1ST GAME The home debut of the Cougars was record-breaking with "Bolde" pushing in 38 points to tie the school individual record set by Guy Lewis in 1947, and the team totaling 102 points to better the previous mark by four set by that same 1947 team. 2ND GAME In record-setting game the Cougars smashed Sam Houston 108 to 100. Don Boldebuck scored a school record of 50 points in the exciting contest and the Cougars' 108 points also represented a new school high. The total of 208 points is now tops for a game involving the UH. Following Boldebuck were Lopez with 14 points, Hatton's 13, and Pettite and Foster with 10 each. Boldebuck hitting two of his record breaking 50 points. UH 79 Texas UH 59 Texas 58 52 1ST GAME Lanky Don Boldebuck paced the Cougar attack with a 32 point production as the triumph over Texas marked Houston's first basketball win in the history of the two schools' short rivalry. Jose Palofox, with 15 points, and Jack Foster's 14 followed Boldebuck in Houston's scoring column, as the Cougars hit a nifty 42.1 % of their shots. 2ND GAME The Cougars displayed an offense which was colder than a bear's paw, but still good enough to whip the Longhoms 59-52. The win gave the Cougars a clean sweep over S. W. C. teams for the year. Boldebuck paced the attack, chilly as it was, with 29 points. The game also marked the end of little Jackie Bell's collegiate career for Houston, since mid-term brought the finish of his eligibility. Hoskins prepares to grab rebound. 343
