Is the shuttle free? Otherwise I don’t mind parking in the neighborhood.

Pretty excited about today’s game! First one I get to attend this season!

I think your scoring chart is a little short! You have left of the very best player in the history of UH and I am being civil about the words I have used! Check yourself friend


#13

Hey Dada the chart itself reads #20-26. That means 1-19 aren’t on there at all.
And it’s not his scoring chart. It was posted to Twitter by the UH Men’s Basketball Program.

Not my chart; comes from the department. Also, they’re only showing who Rob is closing in on.

Full list would be:

  1. Hayes - 2884
  2. Birdsong - 2833
  3. Young - 2043
  4. Upchurch - 1880
  5. Rob Williams - 1838
  6. Dunbar - 1765
  7. Davis - 1741
  8. Franklin - 1684
  9. Anderson - 1662
  10. Winslow - 1548
  11. Coleman - 1516
  12. Kenneth Williams - 1476
  13. Lewis - 1465
  14. Phillips - 1452
  15. McKiver - 1435
  16. Owens - 1407
  17. Thomas - 1388
  18. Drexler - 1383
  19. Thompson - 1381
  20. Olajuwon - 1332
  21. Micheaux - 1322
  22. Moore - 1298
  23. Gray - 1294

Gray’s got at least 19 games left (knock on wood, barring injury). He currently is scoring 19.9 PPG this year so if he continues at that pace, he’ll score around 378 more points this year. That’ll put him at 1672 points and 9th all-time. Assuming they win a game or two in the postseason and he should move ahead of Franklin for 8th. Dunbar and Davis would be in range if they go deeper or he scores more.

2 things about Elvin’s record.

  1. he did that in 3 years because freshmen. weren’t allowed to play varsity

  2. it will never be broken under the current system. Only way for someone to get close is to average around 25 PPG from the get-go. However, anybody that scores that much will go pro after 1-2 years.

Well, I thought I was being smart waiting until Game Day to purchase some kids tickets because I was not sure if I needed two or three. Seems you cannot buy tickets two hours before tip-off online (?) so that waiting will cost me vs. the extra $5 had I went ahead and purchased 3 before today when I only needed two.

Only sharing so others know not to wait until close to the game to try to use a promo code online for the discounts. Live and learn. Still not sure why electronic, print-at-home ticket purchases have a cut-off time but at least I know now.

Go Coogs!

I will surrender to that. I thought I read it wright. Sorry, I get sensitive about the Big E not getting his dues. Thank you for pointing that out now my blood pressure has returned to normal! HNY!


#18

Funny how memory works over time. I would never have guessed Birdsong was that close to “E”
