"Clyde took me out a couple of times, and told me how good of an institution UH was, and how friendly and nice everybody at the University of Houston was." After graduation, if a career in the pros doesn't pan out, and maybe even after a pro career, Hollis would like to do something along the line of working with kids. "I love working with people, especially kids. I'd like to open up a recreation center or something like that where I could help people." The road to UH for Chaney was a little different. After graduating from McKinley High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1984, Chaney hit the working class. At only 5'7", no one was beating down his door asking him to play for them. So Chaney began working at Wendy's. But while frying burgers and cleaning grease traps, Chaney grew to be 6*2", and eventually earned a spot on the team at Garden City Community College in Kansas. Chaney's stay there was successful. He was named MVP of the Jayhawk Conference and led the league in scoring, averaging 26.2 points per game. While Chaney is know for being able to nail three pointers as consistently as lay ups, some are more amazed at his leaping ability, which has improved three and a half inches since pre season. "For my size, I've always been able to jump pretty high. I rode a bicycle when I was younger, but my vertical has improved this season," said Chaney who has gone from a 37" vertical leap to a 40 1/2" vertical leap this season. "I really worked hard in the pre season. I'd practice and run around in a weight vest." Chaney is currently pursuing a degree in Physical Education and plans on being a college coach. "That's what I really want to do, coach college basketball. I really don't care where I start out, I just want to coach." "I like the institution because they care about you here," added Chaney, but gives warning that you better put out an effort. "They will really help you if they see that you are trying, but if they see that you don't care or aren't trying hard, they won't try to help you." For Hollis and Chaney, pro bas- ketball may be on the backburner for now, but whether they go pro or not, their hard work will pay off for them in the future. ► Tom Fontaine 224 ■ Sports Forward Richard Hollis (00) gets down to the ground in an attempt to cover a UT player.
