May 6, 2003

Houston, Texas- - Former University of Houston basketball coach Guy V. Lewis will join Eduardo Aguirre, Jr., Professor Neal UH Professor Neal Amundson and Lorretta Devine in being awarded a honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree at UH's general commencement ceremony at 9 a.m., on Friday, May 9, 2003, in Hofheinz Pavilion.

Lewis, who served as Houston's head coach for 30 seasons, retired as Houston coach with a 592-279 record and led the Cougars to five NCAA Final Four appearances in his career. Three of the players he coached include Elvin Hayes, Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon. This year, Lewis was a finalist for the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.
