Transcript REBUILDING A DYNASTY New head coach Ray McCallum accepts the demands placed on UH basketball By Jake McKim UH head mens basketball coach Ray McCallum isn't used to losing. McCallum came to UH in April of 2000, leaving Ball State after compiling an impressive 126-74 record in seven seasons. His teams made two NCAA Tournament berths and averaged 16 wins per season. So what he inherited at UH had to be a shock to his system. Prior to the 2000-01 season, McCallum seemed to know what he would be up against. "Its a building situation, its a first year for me and you know how those things tend to go!' McCallum said. His Cougars went on to post a 9-20 record overall, 6-10 in Conference USA. Badly undermanned throughout the season, the Cougars stumbled not only to teams they were expected to lose to, but also to teams like Texas Southern and Air Force who they should have beaten. But as Ball State fans witnessed firsthand, McCallum is known as a recruiting wizard and, with time, should be able to attract some of the elite talent around the state of Texas and the nation. The Cougars' effort toward the end of the season, should give fans hope that better days are ahead for a school with such a rich basketball tradition. The fire inside There was no mistaking new head coach Ray McCallum for a laid-back basketball guru. The former Ball State player brought his much-needed resiliency to a team badly in need of confidence. Photo by Rich R. Risma Odds and ends... Quotable: "Our theme all season long has been 'don't quit' We needed something good to happen. We deserved a win and we got it." — Ray McCallum, following UH's 73-72 win over the Charlotte 49ers on Feb. 2, 2001. The Cougars followed that improbable win by winning five of its remaining nine games and four of their last five. Ray McCallum graduated from Ball State University where he scored more than 2,100 points for the Cardinals en route to having his jersey number retired. He also left as the Mid-Atlantic Conference's leading scorer. He was named the MAC Freshman of the Year after scoring 16.5 points per game in his first season. Aside from two NCAA Tournament berths as head coach of the Cardinals, McCallum also led Ball State to an appearance in the NITs. In 2000, Ball State won the MAC championship. McCallum was the first Ball State head coach to have seven consecutive winning seasons. His 1999-00 squad won the Mid-America championship for the second time in his tenure at Ball State. The Cardinals averaged 18 wins per year. McCallum is signed to a three-year contract with the UH Cougars. Roy McCallum J233\
