The impact of Penders is easy to see in the win column, it is how his teams have won that has drawn attention. On the way to averaging 22.1 wins per season, Runnin' Horn teams under Tom Penders have averaged an eye- popping 90.5 points per game. It is that wide-open style of play that has caught the attention of fans across the nation. The 50-year-old Penders enters the 1995-96 season with a 155-71 (.686) record in seven years at Texas. In 24 years as a head coach, his record stands at 425-280 (.603). He is currently the second-winningest coach in Texas history. Only Jack Gray (1937-42, 1946-51), with 194 wins in 12 seasons, has won more. When Penders became the 22nd coach in University of Texas history on April 6, 1988, he inherited a team that had won 16 games the year before and a 16,231 -seat arena that averaged 4,028 fans per game. In the four-year span prior to Penders' arrival, the Longhorns were 64-55 and hadn't won over 20 games in a season since 1979. Immediately, Penders put his stamp on the Texas program. He began calling his team the "Runnin' Horns" - a true oxymoron to UT fans who had watched the Longhorns plod up and down the floor in the years preceding Penders' arrival. He spoke to every alumni and booster group in the state of Texas, talking of an up-tempo, fast-paced style of play. When the ball went up for the 1989 season opener, Texas basketball took off. His 1989 squad came out of nowhere to finish second in the Southwest Conference and earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament. That season, the Runnin' Horns set 22 school and SWC records and more than double their attendance. In 1990, Texas shocked the basketball world by advancing to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament and was just three points away from the Final Four. The 1991 season saw Penders' squad finish the season to a second-place SWC finish and No. 23 Associated Press ranking, and in 1992 the Runnin' Horns again advanced to the NCAAs. After a 1993 season in which key injuries and suspensions robbed Texas a chance at the NCAA Tournament, the last two seasons saw the Runnin' Horns bounce back with a vengeance, winningor sharing both the regular-season and SWC Tournament titles. Both those squads also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. A 1967 graduate of Connecticut, Penders played in both the NCAA Tournament in basketball and the College World Series in baseball and was captain of both Husky teams. The popular Penders and his wife Susie have two children - Tommy, a guard who lettered for the Horns the last two years, and Karli. Eddie Oran Asst. Coach 512/471-5816 Vic Trilli Asst.
