Guard Aubrey Coleman Finishes 2009-10 Season as National Scoring Champion

April 6, 2010

HOUSTON - With the end of the 2009-10 men's basketball season, University of Houston guard Aubrey Coleman finished as the national scoring champion with 25.6 points per game.

The Houston native became the first player in school history to win the national scoring crown. He was the only player in the country to average more than 23.0, 24.0 and 25.0 points per game. Coleman topped Lipscomb's Adnan Hodzic, who finished with 22.7 points per game

Although he became the first Cougar to lead the nation in scoring, Coleman became the fourth player in school history to rank as the nation's statistical leader in any category. Hakeem Olajuwon (67.5, 1984) and Lyle Harger (65.6, 1963) led the country in field goal percentage, while Olajuwon also finished first with 13.5 rebounds per game in 1984.

Bo Outlaw led the nation in field goal percentage in back-to-back seasons at 68.4 percent and 65.8 percent in 1992 and 1993, respectively.

Coleman posted nine 30-point games in 2009-10, including a career-high-tying 38-point effort at Tulane on March 6 during the regular-season finale, and tied for fourth in Houston history with 12 30-point games during his career.

He ranked 11th on the school's career scoring chart with 1,516 points in only 67 games and became the greatest two-year scorer in Houston history.

Although known for his offensive prowess, Coleman also was a leader on the defensive side of the court. He led the league and ranked sixth in the country with 2.6 steals per game and topped the Cougars with 7.4 rebounds per game, good enough to stand eighth in the league.

Coleman became the first Cougar to be named to back-to-back All-Conference USA First Teams since guard Robert McKiver accomplished the feat in 2006-07 and 2007-08.

He also earned a place on the NABC All-District 11 First Team, the second straight season he was named to an All-District First Team.

 

 

Coleman recently was one of 22 players to compete at the 2010 Reese's College All-Star Game during Final Four Weekend at Lucas Oil Stadium. He led six players in double digits with 14 points to help guide the Reese's All-Stars to a 106-101 win against the Hershey's All-Stars in that game.
