Your youthfulness is quite evident.

I was just thinking we could field a heck of a team from players not being mentioned. Thinking about all the great defensive guards we’ve had over the years, I used to love watching Brian Latham play defense.

I need to mention Derrick Daniels, from Ft. Worth Dunbar, who was a highly celebrated recruit in Texas, in the mid 1980s. Daniels was UH’s best PG after Rob Williams for a number of years. Daniels started all 124 games at UH, including his freshman season. He led the team to two NCAA and one NIT Tournament games. Individually, he was honorable mention All-America from the Basketball Times for setting the freshman assist record and was named on the AP SWC All Newcomer Team.

With UH’s great talent in the Lewis and Sampson eras, Daniels gets kind of lost in the shuffle. Most of our younger fans have never heard of him, but he deserves to be in this conversation.

Goldwire was another good one. I wish we would have had him 4 years.

That distinction goes to Anthony Goldwire.

He along with Bo Outlaw deserve some mention.

I had the privilege of having a PE class with Lou in 1974. He was a walking/talking stand up comic. A laugh every minute.
