HOUSTON - The final episode of Cougar Talk with Tom Penders presented by Capital One for the 2008-09 season will air from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, March 24, from the studios of 790 AM The Sports Animal.
Penders will join the "Voice of the Cougars" Tom Franklin for the hour-long show on Tuesday. Fans are invited to call in or submit questions via the "Ask Coach Penders" button at UHCougars.com.
Penders and Franklin will look back at the 2008-09 season and look ahead to the 2009-10 campaign as well as discuss the 2009 NCAA Tournament and other athletics issues.
The Cougars finished the 2008-09 season with a 21-12 overall record and tied for fourth in the league standings after being picked seventh in the Coaches' Preseason Poll. With their recent appearance at the College Basketball Invitational, the Cougars earned their fourth postseason appearance in the last five years, a feat that had not been accomplished since 1988-93.
Penders became only the fourth coach in school history to record 100 wins during his UH career and became the second-fastest coach in school history to reach triple-digit wins.
