Our thoughts go out to former University of Houston basketball coach Guy V. Lewis, who is awaiting surgery at Methodist Hospital Saturday morning, before he was honored at halftime of the UH-Arizona game, the 85-year-old coach took a fall from his wheelchair, hitting his head on a car then on the pavement. The surgery will be to repair a dislocated hip and broken shoulder.

Coach Lewis had a stroke back in 2002 and has had to get around in a wheelchair since then.
