Cool goggles, though.

Only other UH players outside of the obvious ones that i can think of that stuck around in the league are Bo Outlaw and Damon Jones.

Otis Birdsong, and Don Chaney were pretty good as well.

Elite 8 and then the death penalty. We had a legitimate shot at a national championship (preseason #2 in the nation) and the ChicKUns knew all about it. On their way to the ATM machine to get more cash for their players, they stopped by the NCAA compliance office (which was just down the block from ChicKUn Central) and instructed them to make the short drive to Wichita and check out our football team. While investigating our football team they learned we gave a coat to a basketball player from California. BOOM! Death Penalty for the Shockers. Life is tough when you operate under the watchful eye of "big brother". Especially when big brother had just gotten smoked by little brother in basketball and football.

Here's a pictorial presentation of the vibe in Kansas during the early 80's...

Very popular shirts in Kansas during the early 80's.

The cycle continues... this time however, the NCAA infractions enforcement wing is no longer located in Kansas and stocked with ChicKUn alums. 07-coffee3

Jordan Clarkson is averaging 14.5 points per game while playing just 23.7 minutes per game this season.

That's the most points per game for a player averaging under 25 minutes per game this season (min. 30 GP)

Because Tulsa was too good.

That WSU team also had two second round picks on it.
Invisible is right, Tulsa was loaded that year also. Tremendous games that Tulsa won.
WSU did beat Cincinnati by 20 that year though.

I didn’t know that you could have players in the NBA from college.

You also probably didn't know a college team could have 5 future NBA first and second round picks on it. As as ECU fan that must seem unfathomable.

ECU is a basketball school now, you need to get in to it.
