Transcript TOURNAMENT SCORES HOUSTON OPPONENT 61 Western Kentucky 91 81 Sienna 60 66 Villanova 73 The University of Houston Cougars traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to participate in their first major tournament. As misfortune would have it, the Cougars drew top-seeded, sixth ranked, Western Kentucky for the first round. The Hilltoppers entered the tournament with a 9 and 0 record. The tall Hilltoppers easily registered their tenth victory by routing the Cougars 91-61. Taking full advantage of the height superiority, Western took a 26-14 first quarter lead and a commanding 49-30 lead at halftime. The score at the end of the third quarter was 76-42. Turner lays one up from underneath. Kentucky's sensational Tom Marshall led the scorers with 21 points. Following close behind were teammates Turner and Able with 16. Jack Mosher led the Cougars with 15 points. The next day Houston rode to an easy 81-60 victory over Sienna in the consolation bracket. Houston had the height advantage in this contest and used it to good advantage by rolling up a 44-26 halftime lead. The Cougars outscored Sienna 18-11 in the first period and 26-15 in the second. Sienna outscored the Cougars in the first part of the third quarter, but Houston finished the third period with a 66-47 lead, enough to breeze the rest of the way. Gary Shivers, the Cougars' 6-9 center, and Jackie Bell, 5-10 guard paced the Cougars with 20 points apiece. Bill Kirsch and Joe Gunderman, each with 16, led Sienna. In the consolation championship, the Cougars fell to Villanova Wildcats by a score of 73-66. With Bob Shafer hitting for 20 points, Villanova built up a 47-36 halftime advantage. After he was out of the game with his fifth personal foul, Houston rallied and held the lead briefly at 61-60 with four minutes remaining in the game. A fielder and two free throws by Devine put Villanova ahead again to stay. The Cougars gave a good account of themselves in their first tournament against top-notch competition. "Pops" Foster, Cougar sophomore, was named to the All-Tournament Team. 196 Marshall goes high Hatton for two points. on
