PAGE 24 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1968 Fidgety Houston Mentor Named Coach Of Year HOUSTON (AP) - Guy Lewis, college basketball's coach of the year, is a fidgety man who twists towels and drinks at least 20 cups of water during pvery game. As usual, two soft drink cases holding 48 paper cups of water were at Lewis' feet Monday night as his University of Houston Cougars completed their regular season schedule with a 28-0 record by defeating West Texas State, 107-76, at Canyon. Just two hours before the tip- off Lewis had won The Associated Press coach of the year award in run-away verdict. With 322 sports writers and broadcasters voting, Lewis collected 122 votes to 34 for John Wooden of UCLA, the 1966-67 season winner. Lewis' a w a r d came just three days after Elvin Hays, the pace setter for the high scoring Cougars, captured (he p!a\er of the year award with a landslide victory over UCLA's Lew Alcindor. Houston had held the No. 1 national ranking since snapping UCLA's 47-g?.me winning streak Jan. 20 with a 71-69 victory before a record crowd of 52.693 in the Astrodome. Both Lewis and Hayes say their honors belong lo the team and they agree the UCLA victory may have turned a good ball team into a great one. "They were confident before t h a t game and when it was over they just, oozed with confidence," Lewis said. Since that big same all five regulars have improved their shooting a v e r a g e s . Before UCLA, Hayes was shooting 53.4 per cent. In the final 11 games it was 64.2 per cent. "Since the UCLA game we've worked better for the good shot," T ,ewis said. "I've thought we had good team play since the first of the season but since the UCLA game it has been the best I've ever seen on a college team, particularly for desire and an ability lo give the ball to the open mm." That is why he described as amazing the team's 42 assists while routing Valparaiso, 157-81. "Everybody knew he could get the ball and go but everybody was still willing to pass the ball," Lewis said. Lewis, who will be 46 on March 19, was Houston's first great athlete. He was co-capfain of the school's first two basketball teams and both of them RULING CHALLENGED reached the NAIA playoffs in Kansas City. , He became freshman coach in 1053 and head coach in 1956. For the past eight seasons, Lewis' teams hold a 166-58 record, including 78-10 for the Hayes era. The 1967-68 team is the fourth straight to move into the NCAA playoffs. Lewis' wife, Dena, says he thrives on pressure and can sleep anytime you get him still. "But he loves to be on the go," she said. "If it's not scouting or coaching or recruiting it's the garden or the beach or playing with our dog that worships Russians Add Fuel To Olympics' Fire MOSCOW AP) - The Soviet Union today demanded that the International Olympic Committee cancel its decision to let South Africa take part in the Mexico Summer Olympics. -The Central Council of Soviet sports clubs and organizations issued a statement calling the IOC decision "a challenge to all public opinion."

By MARCOS MEMBRILLA Pueblo Correspondent Pueblo High School's track and field team appears to have speed, to burn this spring. The Warriors' sprinters are Vic Lang (10.0), Larry Behers (10.0), Eddie Armenia (22.0 and 49.6), and Willie Lewis (49.5). The quartet is also expected to run the relays. "We have good speed and good balance," says track coach Ed Brown, "but no depth. l We should be all right, but we're a little down without Ron Jackscn," says Brown. Jackson, who ran 10.0 and 21.6 last spring, transferred to a Los Angeles high school after football season. Other top returnees include miler Louie Chabeya (4:31), pole-vaulter Ernie Valenzuela (12-5), shot-putter Frank Renteria and versatile Flenard Grisby (hurdler, sprinter and jumper -- G-e 1 ^ and 23-3V-0.

But the statement, carried by be official news agency Tass, did not explicitly threaten that he Soviet Union would boycott he Mexico Olympics if the original IOC decision is allowed ID stand. The governing body of Soviet Sports accused the members of the IOC who voted for South Af- ·ica's readmission of "most flagrantly violating the Olympic charter banning political, racialist or religious discrimination against sportsmen." It said "this practically spells encouragement of the policy of apartheid." The statement maintained that the IOC took its decision "to please certain imperialist quarters" and "Lo fulfill imne rialism's social order and dis rupt the world sporting movement." The Soviet Union already had condemned the IOC for its ac tion on South Africa. Today's statement indicated this country will await its next move unti the meeting of the IOC execu tive board called for last Friday by IOC President Avery Brundage. This meeting to reconsider the South Africa issue is to be heh within the next few months, per haps in Lausanne in May. The statement issued today said that the Soviet Union stands together with the African and other countries that have opposed the decision favoring South Africa. It dismissed the form of inte gration undertaken by South Af rica to get back into Olympic competition. "The National Olympic Com miltee of the South African Re public does not include a single representative of the native po pu'aticin of the country," the slq'ement sflid. "The sports principle of elimi nation contests for the Olympic: has been replaced by adminis trative selection, determined b white leaders." TOMORROW 11 A.M.--Baseball.

While driving on highways he frequently takes words from billboards and tries to fit them int» some familiar melody. Howie Lorch. the student manager, estimates that Lewis drinks 20 cups of water a .game but admits this is below average. That is why Lorch still sees that 48 cups are available. "Maybe the lower average is because we're winning and haven't played so many close games," Lorch said. "Or it might be because they've outlawed the dunk shot. That used to really excite him." "The question has never come up before, Mr. Buff, but I'm sure it's against the Archery Club rules to pin a picture of Arizona State University on the target." 1 BASKETBALL City Leagues FLOWING WELLS JUNIOR HIGH .Holy Cross (Gaffney and Russell 10) tie.
