Transcript The 1994-95 Houston Cougar's men's basketball team boasted one of the top freshman classes in the country coming into the season. Those who watched the Cougars got to see the freshmen play. Guards Tommie Davis and Damon Jones, from Crenshaw High in Los Angeles and Galveston Ball High respectively, started 46 games between them, 19 in the same back court. Forward Galen Robinson out of Aldine MacArthur was a valuable reserve, getting into all but three games and averaging more than 15 minutes aeon- test. In the Dr. Pepper Southwest Conference Post season Classic, the trio's court time was increased even more, as they played a combined 155 minutes in two games. Although their performances were inconsistent at best, no one can deny the experience benifitted all three. "I thought our freshmen played with a lot of poise," head basketball coach Alvin Brooks said after the Cougars' 9-19 season concluded with a loss to the Texas Red Raiders in the SWC Classic. "Hopefully, this is something that will carry over into the next year." Houston did better than expected this year in the tourney, beating Texas Christian in the first round. The Horned Frogs had won four straight against the Cougars, including a two-game regular season sweep. The Texas game, in which the Cougars triumphed 105-96 at Hofheinz Pavilion in overtime, was perhaps the highlight of the season.Vivaled only by a post season win over Texas Christian. Robinson did not play, but Jones had 11 assists and the 5-8 Davis had a season-high 17 points and eight rebounds. Jones' dishes were the only time all season a Cougar reached double figures in that category. Also contributing to the great play was junior- college transfer forward Kirk Ford, who will be back for one more year. Ford averaged 22.8 points and 8.3 rebounds during the surge. Senior forward Jesssie Drain also got his year untracked after a terrible non-conference start. Shooting only .293 from the floor, .176 from 3- point range, coming into SWC play, Drain hit a.481 and .394 clip in those respective categories from Jan. 10 on. Of course, junior forward Tim Moore was all everyone expected and, well, more in his second season as a Cougar. He led the team in scoring (20.1), rebounding (10.4), blocked shots (3.0) and steals (1.8) during the regular season, finishing behind only in steals after the two post season games. The hot streak didn't last, unfortunately, and Houston wound up in sixth place in the SWC with a 5- 9 conference record. Still, unlike the 1993-94 squad, which bowed out to Texas Tech in the first round of that year's team made a better playoff showing. In the end, the Cougars finished with only one more victory than the year before, but the improvement was in the fact that this year's team was young and bad, rather than old and bad.
