Transcript [Heref s Mud In Your Eye Guys Sanz retires soccer jersey for cleaner lifestyle Angel Sanz never dreamed he would be where he is today, and he owes it all to one-too-many dirty uniforms. Last January (1993), the 6-4 sophomore Cougar guard came to Houston from Madrid, Spain, with the hopes of getting a good education and making it on the basketball team. Now that he has had almost a year to get acquainted with the American college atmosphere, Sanz can look back and wonder about what might have been. "When I was younger, I used to play soccer all the time," he said. "Never did I think I was ever going to be playing basketball. But when I was thirteen, I used to come home with muddy soccer uniforms. My uniforms got muddy a lot." "So after my mother got fed up of washing all of my dirty uniforms, she suggested that I try a cleaner sport. She thought I was tall and strong and then suggested that I play basketball." The rest is history, so far. Sanz admits that his parents were always looking out for his best interests when he was younger, even though the younger Sanz always had the last word. "My parents gave me a lot of freedom. They never told me to do this or that," he said. "They always asked me first. It feels great knowing that I did things because I wanted to and not because they told me to." But there was one thing his parents, particularly his mother, made Sanz do. "My mom made me learn English," Sanz said. As a youngster, Sanz attended an Irish pre-school where he was able to learn his native Spanish language and English-at the same time. However, Sanz's mother felt like her son needed to spend more time with his English. "After school, my mother made me work on my English for two hours a day. I didn't want to, but looking back, I'm glad I did." Sanz is glad to say that he owes everything he has to his parents. "My mother took great care of me, and my father never missed a game I played in Spain." Unfortunately, Sanz's father has missed all the games his son has played in the United States. "That is one of the only things I miss," Sanz said. "Everything here (in Houston) has been great except for the fact that my parents can not see me play, but I understand that it would be too expensive for them to make the trip to America."" His parents don't know what their missing. After basically sitting on the bench all of last season, Sanz has become part of coach Alvin Brooks' guard rotation. He is averaging 14.5 minutes and 3.5 steals per game over the Cougars' first two regular season games. "Angel is player who provides depth at the second gurad position," Brooks said. "He is also one of the hardest workers on the team." If Sanz is to improve on his game in hopes of one day becoming a starter, he knows that he will definitely have to work. "I'm still learning (the system) everyday. But unlike last year, I can be more active on the court," he said. Sanz also hopes to be active in the classroom, which is the main reason he wanted to come to America. "School is the most important thing," he said. "If I go back to Spain without a degree, my coming to Houston will be a failure." But whether he succeeds on the court or in the classroom, Sanz can be sure that he won't have a problem keeping his clothes clean.-Jason Paul Ramirez Houston's version of Air Jordan—Air Goldwire. Although Texas Tech defeated Houston, 68-77, Anthony Goldwire gave the Red Raiders a run for their money. He accumulated 19 points 10 assists, and six rebounds for the night.

Despite the largest crowd turnout of the season, 5,356, Texas dominated Houston all night. The final score was a dismal 78-110.

Anthony Goldwire seemed to be all over the court lending a helping hand where he could, but this time he was going to try it on his own. Houston faced UCLA with a 2-4 preseason record. They knew something had to be done to get the team back oh track, and they hoped to begin with this game. Little did they know the 72- 93 loss was the beginning of many more to come.

The Cougars came out in full force on their home court with Drain leading the way in points scored with 23, which was also Drain's highest scoring game of the season.
