Another year of achievement - and of no national notice. And it was Tex's last year.
4-3 in the non-con, lost in the finals of the Big-8 preseason tournament (they had those back then) but got it going in the conference race with an 11-3 record, rising to 14th in the national polls.
And then in the NCAA tournament - two losses (they played consolation games back then). Losses to TCU and Louisville. Two wins and we would have gone back to the final four. But the season ended in disappointment. And Tex was off to the U. of Washington, breaking our hearts, or at least mine.
