Houston Cougars Tournament History

The University of Houston Cougars basketball team has been the school's go-to athletic team since the 1945-46 season, when the athletic squad first found a home on the university campus. Initially joining the Lone Star Conference in the NAIA, the Cougars saw postseason action in the NAIA Men's Basketball Tournament in 1946 and 1947, eventually joining the NCAA and gaining steam on the college circuit in the '50s. Houston's glory days blossomed under the leadership of Guy Lewis in the 1950s, starting with the 1955-56 season. Lewis, who also played basketball for the Cougars in college, coached the team through 27 consecutive winning seasons, including a string of Final Four action in the NCAA Tournament in the '60s and again in the early '80s. Under Lewis's leadership, star players like Elvin Hayes, Otis Birdsong and Dwight Jones became some of the most notable college players, also helping the rise in popularity of NCAA basketball thanks to the red-hot action on the court when the Cougars took on top competitors in arenas across the country.
