Phi Slama Jama was the nickname given to the University of Houston's men's basketball teams from 1982 to 1984. Coined by former Houston Post sportswriter Thomas Bonk in a January 3, 1983 article, the nickname was quickly adopted by the players and even appeared on team warmup suits by the middle of the 1982–83 season. The teams were coached by Guy V. Lewis and featured future Hall of Fame and NBA Top 50 players Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. "Texas's Tallest Fraternity" was especially known for its slam dunking and explosive, fast-breaking style of play.

Golden Ratio Spiral. Fibonacci Spiral. In geometry, a golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is Phi, the golden ratio. That is, a golden spiral gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of Phi for every quarter turn it makes. Fibonacci spiral, which is constructed similarly to the above method except that you start with a rectangle partitioned into 2 squares and then in each step add to the rectangle's longest side a square of the same length. Since the ratio between consecutive Fibonacci numbers approaches the golden ratio as the Fibonacci numbers approach infinity, so too does this spiral get more similar to the previous approximation the more squares are added.
