2007-08 HOUSTON BASKETBALL
BUILDING ON TRADITION
WITH EACH PASSING YEAR, THE COUGARS ADD TO THEIR IMPRESSIVE LIST OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS
From Alden Pasche to Guy Lewis, to The Big E,
to Clyde the Glide, to Hakeem The Dream, to the
Silent Assassin, to college basketball’s Game
of the Century to Phi Slama Jama, to 27 postseason tournament berths, to Five NCAA Final
Four Teams, to a record-setting head coach who
is about to join college basketball’s greatest
coaches of all time, the University of Houston
has a storied tradition as one of college basketball’s greatest programs.
HOUSTON’S CHAMPIONSHIP LEGACY
27 Postseason Tournament Berths (NCAA & NIT)
18 NCAA Tournament Berths
Five NCAA Final Four Appearances
Two NCAA Finalist Teams
One NIT Finalist Team
Seven Conference Championships
Five Conference Tournament Championships
Houston’s success began in 1946 under Pasche
when his team captain Guy Lewis teamed with
another all-conference player Willie Wells and
led the Cougars to a pair of Lone Star Conference championships and the NAIB national
tournament in the program’s first two years of existence.
Lewis took over for Pasche as head coach in 1956, and began an historic coaching
career during the next 30 seasons. By the time he retired in 1986 with 592 career wins,
Lewis had led Houston to five NCAA Final Four Appearances, coached 14 All-American
players and two National Players of the Year. He also was named the National Coach
of the Year in 1968 and 1983, and helped revolutionize basketball in the Southwest
when he signed Houston’s first two African-American basketball players, Elvin Hayes
and Don Chaney.
Despite this success, it was his “outrageous idea” that originally put Houston’s basketball program on the national map. On Jan. 20, 1968, Hayes led the second-ranked
Cougars to a 71-69 victory over top-ranked UCLA in the Astrodome, the “Eighth Wonder of the World”.
10
That game changed the way fans watch college basketball today. It featured the top
two ranked teams playing in the first nationally-televised game and first game played in a
domed stadium.
Hayes and Chaney helped lead Houston to its
first two NCAA Finals Fours during their careers before they went on to play in the NBA.
In 1989, Hayes was inducted into the Naismith
Memorial Hall of Fame. This fall, he will join
Lewis and Clyde Drexler as members of the
newly created College Basketball Hall of Fame
in Kansas City.
Houston also played in the NCAA Final Four
three straight years in the early 1980s. The 1982-83 team was nicknamed “Phi Slama
Jama” and advanced to the NCAA Championship game after beating No. 2 ranked
Louisville in the semifinals. The Cougars fell to North Carolina State in the title game,
and that game helped turn the NCAA Tournament into “March Madness” . The following year, Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon and the “Silent Assassin” Michael Young led the
Cougars back to the NCAA title game against Georgetown. This year, UH will honor
Young when it retires his jersey. He will join Hayes, Otis Birdsong, Drexler and Olajuwon as the only men’s basketball players who have had their jerseys retired.
In addition, Houston’s current head coach Tom Penders looks to join some of college
basketball’s most successful coaches as he enters the season needing 16 more wins
to record the 600th victory of his career. During the past three seasons, Penders has
recorded 57 of those wins at Houston when he led the Cougars to two postseason
tournaments and their most successful seasons as a member of Conference USA.

Postseason history

existence. Since then, Houston has played in 18 NCAA Tournaments, advancing to ten
Sweet 16s and five Final Fours.

HOFHEINZ Pavilion- Home of the Cougars
HOUSTON Has Posted 10 wins inside Hofheinz Pavilion 24 times since 1969-70
Since its doors opened on December 1, 1969,
Hofheinz Pavilion has been an exciting basketball venue for University of Houston fans. There is
a great view from every seat in the building with
theatre-style cushioned seats surrounding Guy V.
Lewis Court. In 1998, luxury boxes were added
around the concourse, making a new seating capacity of 8,479.
Recent improvements also include a new scoreboard with a full-color replay screen that have
modernized the facility without sacrificing any
of its original charm. Three years ago, a new
wall-to-wall, state-of-the-art wooden court was
installed and the building was rewired to meet
many of the technological demands of the 21st
century.
16
Hofheinz Pavilion was named in honor of Judge
Roy Hofheinz, the entrepreneur who gained
worldwide fame for conceiving the idea of and
spearheading the City of Houston’s construction
of the Astrodome. Hofheinz and his wife, Irene,
met as students at the University in 1929. They
later created the Judge Roy Hofheinz Foundation
which contributed $1.5 million towards the construction of the Pavilion.
In addition to being used for men’s and women’s
basketball games, the multi-purpose facility has
been utilized for graduation exercises, concerts,
convocations, student-sponsored activities,
seminars and other special events.

Houston is also one of only 11 NCAA institutions to produced two No. 1 overall selections in the NBA Draft. Elvin

Hakeem Olajuwon was the first player taken in the 1984
NBA Draft.

In the second championship season, he teamed with a former collegiate teammate, Clyde
