One of those things includes a Division I collegiate basketball car- rer, something a small percentage of high school basketball players are able to experience. This year, UH bids farewell to three great players who played their final year of ehgibility Derrick Fernandez, a slasher and high flyer who made a habit of impressing Cougar fans with his slam dunks during Midnight Madness every year, says goodbye after a senior year that included 16 games. He scored a season-high nine points in 12 minutes against Memphis on Feb. 23 and shot 40 percent from the field this year. Senior point guard Roy Spears leaves the Cougars after a superb year playing behind Gee Gervin. The Memphis native scored a career-high 13 points agains the No. 1-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats on Feb. 17. Spears scored in double figures five times and dished out a career-high six assists on two occas- sions this season. The finest story of them all was Early Smith, a Cougar who already graduated, but wanted to play out his eligibility. Smith returned to the lineup this season after three knee surgeries. His hard work paid off as he participated in 13 games in 2000, shooting 50 percent from the floor. The big center from Starkville, Miss., tied his career-high of eight points in his second game back. He also grabbed a season-high eight rebounds against the No. 1 Bearcats. The Cougars wouldn't have been better without these guys, not matter how little their statistical contributions may have been. Besides, it was their emotional leadership that made them special. • by Jason Caesar Consolacion Oh tke point Roy Spears played well off the bench, distributing the ball and shooting well from the three-point line.
