    Back in the "old days", it was common for teams to wear even number at home and odd number on the road. In the '80s UH was one of the last teams still doing that. Olajuwon wore 34/35, Drexler 22/23, Rob Williams 20/21, Larry Micheaux 40/41, Benny Anders 32/33. I'm totally blanking on what number Michael Young wore.

    Update: I finally came up with it. Young wore 42/43.
