    Houston Coach Penders Passes Out on Sidelines
    Penders Blames Dehydration, Given Technical for Collapse

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Jan. 21) - Houston coach Tom Penders collapsed on the sideline late in the first half of the Cougars' 82-79 loss to UAB on Saturday night.

    Penders, 60, was carried off the floor on a stretcher and given oxygen, but he returned to coach in the second half. He later attributed his fall to a heart condition and said he felt fine after taking the oxygen.

    Penders fell to his knees as UAB's Wen Mukubu drove to the basket and drew a foul with 52 seconds left in the half and UAB leading 46-44. Officials called a technical foul on Penders, apparently thinking he was reacting to the foul call. But the game stopped and the crowd hushed when Penders didn't get up.

    Didn't CUSA officials apologize to Houston for calling the technical foul?

    Can't have coaches passing out on the court, can we? Guess the assistants should have drug Tom off the court, at least! :rolleyes: :eek:
