    Malosky Joins Cougar Broadcast Team

    Nov. 4, 2003

    Lisa Malosky, a familiar member of the television broadcast teams for the Houston Rockets and Comets since 1995, will be an integral part of the University of Houston ISP Sports Radio Network this season, serving as color analyst for all Cougar men's basketball contests.

    Malosky, who also has worked for Fox Sports Net as a sideline reporter in both pro basketball and college football, will join Carl Dukes on the UH radio broadcasts. Dukes, who has been a part of the Cougar radio crew the past five years as an analyst and play-by-play man, will handle the play-by-play duties fulltime this season, replacing Craig Ackerman, who recently resigned in order to concentrate on his new position with the Houston Rockets Radio Network.

    "We are extremely excited to have Lisa join our network for the upcoming basketball season," Dave Maggard, University of Houston Director of Athletics, says. "Her professional experience and involvement in the community, along with Carl?s familiarity with Cougar Basketball, give us a talented broadcast team that should provide the type of coverage our listeners will find both entertaining and informative."

    Malosky first came to the Houston market in 1991 as a sports anchor for KPRC-TV. Since that time, she has also covered the NBA and WNBA for NBC, and TNT/WTBS.

    Dukes has an extensive basketball background as well, having served as the play-by-play voice for both Southwest Texas State and UT-San Antonio, as well as host of the Houston Rockets Coaches Show and pre-game and post-game shows during his career.

    The 2003-04 season begins for UH on November 21 when the Cougars host East Tennessee State.
