Transcript Fancy dribbling and expert sharp-shooting concluded the 1959-1960 cage season before capacity crowds, who without fail attended the court contests from early December to late February. Eight returning lettermen were supplemented by three from the Redshirts to comprise the traveling eleven. The Cougar Cagers began the season by successfully downing three in a home court series. Lamar Tech took the opening defeat 89-66. West Texas followed in defeat by losing to the Cougars 105-60, while McMurry was the underdog in a 92-51 contest. Travel and defeat went hand-in-hand when the Houston five visited College Station and Texas A&M. The Aggies bounded across the court between defensive Cougars to tally 67 to Houston's 49. Returning to Jeppesen Field House, the Miami five were successful in upsetting the home court winning streak to give the Cougar's their second season defeat, 72-63. The Missouri Valley Conference opener found the Cougars supporting a 3-2 non-conference record and playing host to North Texas State. At the close of the fourth quarter, North Texas had fallen to the sharp-shooting Houston squad . . . 88-59. The Texas Aggies left their home court to visit the Houston squad for their second seasonal encounter. Bounding from basket to basket, the cage contest was a toss-up until the final seconds of play. Holding to a slim two point margin, the Cougars took their second defeat from the Aggie squad, 64-62. The slim marginal losses continued for the Big Reds when Wichita invaded the Houston campus and landed a six point win, 69-63. The Houston Cougars now supported a 1-1 conference record. To conclude a five game home stretch, Tulsa fell to the sharpshooters from the Texas team, 68-62. Bill Hathaway (in the air) pulls in a rebounding ball, but it appears that the 6' 11" Senior is being held up by fellow eager Dan Palombizio.
