HOUSTON The UH basketball team hosts Rice on Wednesday and at halftime, the university will honor former Cougars Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler and Elvin Hayes.

The three men were named Top 75 All-Time March Madness Player. The honor was decided by a panel of college basketball experts, commissioned by the NCAA.

Olajuwon and Drexler led UH to three straight Final Four appearances from 1982-1984. Hayes did the same in 1967 and 1968. In fact, the first 1,000 fans in the stadium on Wednesday will receive an Elvin Hayes bobble head doll.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 pm.
