Akeem Olajuwon and Larry
Micheaux have put together the
ideal scouting film for Louisville
— and it might rival “Franken
stein” as a horror flick for Coach
Denny Crum and his No. 2-
rated Cardinals.
The two giants in the middle
of the Houston lineup each play
ed the best game of his career
Sunday in a 89-71 victory over
Villanova that delivered the na
tion’s No. 1-rated team its
second consecutive trip to the
NCAA Final Four and a semifin
al date with Louisville.
The 7-foot sophomore Ola
juwon collected 20 points, 13 re
bounds, 8 blocked shots, 2 steals
and an assist and 6-9 senior
Micheaux added a career-high
30 points, 12 rebounds, 4 block
ed shots, 2 assists and a steal to
give the Cougars their 25th con
secutive win and their second
straight NCAA Midwest Re
gional title.
Olajuwon was named the
most outstanding player in the
regional and was joined on the
all-tourney team by teammates
Micheaux and Michael Young.
Olajuwon also had 21 points, 6
rebounds and 5 blocks in Friday
night’s victory over Memphis
“Akeem had perhaps his best
game of the year,” said Houston
Coach Guy Lewis of his center’s
play Sunday. “Not necessarily
from a scoring standpoint but an
all-around game. He was intimi
dating inside and great on both
ends of the floor. He sure made
a difference in the way I felt on
the bench. I’m glad to have this
big rascal.”
Olajuwon was 10-of-ll from
the field with five dunks as
Houston’s celebrated Phi Slama
Jama fraternity held another
rush party. The Cougars had 10
dunks in the game, including
two by Clyde Drexler and one
each by other starters Young,
Micheaux and Alvin Franklin.
Villanova coach Rollie Massi-
mino expressed some displea
sure with his Houston scouting
“Obviously they must be bet
ter than we thought if they beat
us by the score that they did,”
Massimino said. “That’s (Hous
ton) an extremely talented team.
They run very well and with the
big guy in the middle (Akeem
Olajuwon), they can be a
tremendous team.”
Olajuwon asserted himself
during a 4 Vi-minute stretch
midway through the first half,
collecting six points, three re
bounds, two dunks and a steal to
trigger a 10-0 run that lifted the
Cougars from a three-point de
ficit into the lead for good at
Guards Dwayne McClain and
Stewart Granger combined for
nine points to pull Villanova
back within 22-20 with 5:25 left
in the half. But Micheaux and
Young used power moves
around the Villanova basket to
score six points apiece and the
Big East Wildcats could manage
only one more field goal over
the duration of the half to fall
behind 37-27.
Villanova went to a full-court
press to start the second half and
the Cougars shredded it. It tool
just five minutes for Houstonit
double its lead against tfe
press, outscoring the Wildcat
16-6, with Olajuwon and Dres
ler benefitting most from
series of 2-on-l and 3-on
breaks with six points apiece.
Villanova was able to bre
out on top early, but then tlx
Cougars began to heat up witln
1 ()-() run that featured six
by Olajuwon. After that Villaoo
va couldn’t catch freewheelim
BY .
“At the present time the teat
is somewhat disappointed,
Massimino said. “Butwearenu
disappointed to the point when
we are embarrassed. We play
hard and never stopped tr
to get back into the game."
The game marked an endtc
an era at Villanova. Third-l
All-America center Job
Pinone, point guard Stewaj

quin are among five graduatini
seniors who have taken theteat
to four straight NCAA tourna
ment appearances.

The Texas Aggie softball
team lost twice to Cal Poly-
Pomona in Sunday’s final round
of the 16-team double
elimination Pony Invitational
tournament, held in Fullerton,
Calif., Friday through Sunday.
After winning its first four
games of the tourney Friday and
Saturday, No. 4-ranked Texas
A&M lost 3-2 and 3-0 in the fin
als to fall to 14-6 on the season.
In Sunday’s first game with
third-ranked Poly-Pomona, the
Aggies’Josie Carter hit a home
run on the first pitch of the
game to give Texas A&M an ear
ly 1-0 lead. In the fourth inning,
Aggie second baseman Patti
Holthaus walked, was singled to
second by Mary Schwind and
went to third on a passed ball.
Catcher Gay McNutt hit a sacri
fice fly to give Texas A&M its
final run of the game.
In the sixth inning, Poly-
Pomona third baseman Sue

S. Main — Bryan

Brazney doubled and went to
third on a fielder’s choice. Kobie
Murray walked and stole
second, and moments later,
shortstop Kay Nutter singled to
score both runs. When the ball
was thrown from the Aggie out
field to Schwind at first base in
an futile attempt to get Nutter,
Schwind hesitated for a few
seconds. By the time she threw
to McNutt, Murray had crossed
the plate to tie the score at 2-2.
After the game went into ex
tra innings, Poly-Pomona scored
the winning run in the 10th
when center fielder Lisa Doni-
gan doubled, was sacrificed to
third and came home on a sacri
fice fly by Murray. Texas A&M,
which has had trouble hitting
and scoring runs this spring,
finished the game with five hits.
In Sunday’s second game,
Poly-Pomona scored all of its
runs in the first inning, as the
Aggies committed three errors.
All three runs, which scored
with the benefit of Poly-
Pomona’s only two hits of the
game, were unearned.
