Transcript Pops Foster watches Pettiette, Boldebuck, Hatton go after ball. "Bolde" dunks crip shot for 2 pointer against Golden Hurricane. UH UH 64 59 Tulsa Tulsa 67 69 1 ST GAME Tulsa's rugged defense coupled with Houston's weak floor showing combined to give the Hurricane a 67-64 win in an important MVC game. It was Houston's fourth straight Valley loss and virtually eliminated them from a chance at the conference crown. A sagging Tulsa defense held Don Boldebuck to 14 points, while Bob Patterson dropped in 26 points for the Hurricane. "Pops" Foster led Cougar scoring with 20 points. 2ND GAME Tulsa's Hurricane swept the two game series with Houston this year winning the finale 69-59. Great play by Don Boldebuck, who paced the Cougars with 25 points, Jack Foster and Jim Hatton was offset by the deft shooting of Tulsa's Patterson and Courter who had 28 and 25 points respectively. 346 UH 75 OCU UH 49 OCU 1 ST GAME 63 65 Paced by Don Boldebuck and hustling Jerry Pettiette, the U of H Cougars routed OCU's Chiefs in a game not nearly as close as the 75-63 score would indicate. Five Cougars hit the double mark in the scoring column/'Bolde" had 28, Pettiette 15, Lopez, Hatton, and Foster 10 each. 2ND GAME The Chiefs caught the Cougars on their coldest night of the season and used it to full advantage for a 65-49 win. Boldebuck had 26 points for scoring honors. The game produced the worst showing of the year for Lopez, Foster and Hatton, who were held to 8 points between them. Boldebuck grabs "Pops" Foster pass and spins for 2 points. UH 60 Okla. A&M 58 UH 47 Okla. A&M ... 1ST GAME 58 Houston's Cougars eased by Oklahoma Aggies in a well played game. Both teams displayed a well-drilled offense and defense as the game was marred by a total of only 28 personal fouls. Boldebuck scored 28 points. 2ND GAME Hank Iba's defensive minded Oklahoma Aggies salvaged the last of a three game set, this year with the Cougars by a 57-47 score. Jerry Pettiette with 13 and Lupe Lopez with 10 led the Cougar attack. 7 foot Don Boldebuck goes off post for 2 points against Thoroughbreds. UH 64 Bradley 55 The University of Houston Cougars blasted the last year N. C. A. A. runnerup, Bradley Braves 64-55. The game was marred by sloppy play and cold shooting on the part of both clubs, Don Boldebuck led the scoring with 26 points and he also intercepted 22 rebounds. Jack Foster and Lupe Lopez followed "Bolde" with 12 and 13 points respectively. UH 91 Murray 65 Flashy Jack Foster peppered the nets for 29 points to lead Houston's run-run Cougars to a 91-65 victory over Murray State's Thoroughbreds. The Cougars jumped into the lead at the opening tip-off and turned the game into a rout as Foster and lithe Lupe Lopez fired away spectactularly. Lopez followed Foster in the Cougar scoring with 17 points. Murray did manage to hold Don Boldebuck to 14 points. "Bolde" however, turned in a remarkable job under the boards. The fast-breaking Cougars led at half-time 48-32. Jerry Pettiette rides herd over back of Bradley player in drive for 2 points. 347
