Transcript Cougar Coaching Staff Head Coach Alvin Brooks Brooks' Career 1993-94 Houston 8-19 1994-95 Houston 9-19 1995-96 Houston Overall Total ... two years, 17-38 (.309) Houston Total .. two years, 17-38 (.309) Alvin Brooks (Lamar University '80) program. "We are not trying to build a season; we are trying to build a - Alvin Brooks Those are the words that helped Alvin Brooks endure his first season as the head basketball coach at the University of Houston. As an assistant coach at Houston for seven years, Brooks witnessed the Cougars post a 142-73 record and earn three NCAA tournament berths, three NIT appearances and win one Southwest Conference regular- season title and one SWC Post-Season Classic championship. Despite this success, however, he knew that Houston was going to have to change its style of play if the Cougars were to develop into a consistent national top-25 program. That meant a transition from a deliberate offense and matchup zone defense. Having grown up 15 minutes from the UH campus, Brooks witnessed legendary coach Guy Lewis build a rich tradition with a full-court pressing defense and a disciplined, up-tempo offense. As a point guard at Wheatley High School, Brooks also learned a similar style of play under highly-successful head coach Jackie Carr. Brooks began his first season determined to change the Cougars' style of play. What resulted was beyond anything he could have imagined. Houston's 1993-94 season included a 13-game losing streak and an 8-19 overall record. In addition, Brooks and his coaching staff posted post-midnight office hours to review tapes of each loss. Last year, the Cougars managed just nine wins but did beat six of their seven Southwest Conference foes, including an 80-77 win over TCU in the first round of the Dr Pepper SWC Classic in March. While Brooks might have been tempted to revert back to the old style of play, he was grateful for the advice that Lewis and Carr offered. "Stick with what you believe in," they told him. Brooks has certainly taken steps to get the Cougar program headed into the right direction. He has signed two highly regarded recruiting classes. His staff meets daily with players to closely monitor academic progress. Brooks has also made the players more involved in the Houston community by visiting children in elementary schools and area hospitals. Prior to coming to Houston, Brooks spent five seasons as an assistant coach at Lamar. He also was a point guard for the Cardinals and was an all-SLC performer. He still holds school records for assists in a game, season and career. Following his collegiate career, he was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA. - Dick Lien Asst.
