"I think I have a chance to play professional basketball, but I have to look past basketball because it won't always be there. I can't wait until I get cut or injured before I realize that I need something besides basketball," said Hollis who is currently pursuing a Sociology degree. Like Hollis, Chaney also dreams of playing in the NBA, but realizes that he needs something else. "It has always been a childhood dream of mine to play in the NBA, but it's even more of a dream to me with my family sit uation now," said Chaney who has been married for three years, has one child, and is expecting another in the near future. "But I can't count on basketball, I really need to get my degree." Like Chaney, Hollis is also married, although not quite the veteran Chaney is. Hollis has been married for the past five months, and says that it has turned his life around, along with a little help from Head Coach Pat Foster. "The day I remember the most was when coach Foster talked to me about God. I wasn't living my life right and he saw it. For him to be able to talk to me about what is best for me, not for UH basketball, really had an effect on me. That and my marriage have helped me a lot." It was that same type of trust that Hollis had for UH that brought him to Houston. "I was being recruited by Alvin Brooks, and he was the only one that I trusted. He didn't offer me anything, tell me any lies, or tell me what I would or wouldn't be. He talked about life after basketball, and how important it was to get my degree." Phi Slamma Jamma also sparked Hollis's interest in the Coogs. Hollis was living in New Mexico, and the road to the Final Four took the Cougars to Albur- querque, and the team known for high flying slam dunks left a good impression on the tenth grader. "They were a great influence on me. I was a sophomore in High School living in New Mexico, and after they came out there, it was my dream to play basketball at UH."
