THE FERTITTA CENTER
With the completion of the 2016-17 season, the former Hofheinz Pavilion began a $60 million renovation that will transform the facility into the state-of-the-art Fertitta Center.
Made possible by a generous $20 million gift from University of System Board of Regents Chairman Tilman J. Fertitta and his family in August 2016, the facility will feature premium and courtside clubs.
A reconfigured bowl will put fans closer to the action with floor-level seating opposite the team benches for University of Houston students.
ABOUT THE COUGARS
Under the leadership of 2017-18 American Athletic Conference and NABC District 25 Coach of the Year Kelvin Sampson, the Cougars enjoyed one of the best seasons in recent decades.
The Cougars posted a 27-8 overall record and tied for second in the American Athletic Conference. Advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010, Sampson led the Cougars to their first NCAA Tournament victory since 1984 in a thrilling 67-65 win over San Diego State.
The Cougars fell just a buzzer-beater away from advancing to the Sweet 16 in a loss to seventh-ranked and eventual NCAA Final Four participant Michigan.
When the Cougars open their 2018-19 home season, they will do so riding one of the nation’s longest home winning streaks. Houston enjoyed a perfect 15-0 record inside H&PE Arena on the campus of nearby Texas Southern University with victories over Top-10 opponents Cincinnati and Wichita State.
Sophomore guard Armoni Brooks was honored as the American Athletic Conference Sixth Man of the Year, while guard Rob Gray was a First-Team performer by the American Athletic Conference, NABC District 25 and USBWA District VII. Freshman forward Fabian White Jr. earned a place on the league’s All-Rookie Team.
