Men's Basketball Begins Preps for 2009-10 Season
Sept. 1, 2009
HOUSTON - The University of Houston men's basketball team took its first steps toward the 2009-10 season Monday with the start of its off-season workouts.
After using the first week of school to become acclimated to their class schedules, the Cougars can work out as a team in the Elmer Redd Strength and Conditioning Center or in groups of four at Hofheinz Pavilion. However, NCAA regulations limit the number of days and the amount of time per week that players can practice.
Beginning Sept. 15, the Cougars can practice as a team at Hofheinz Pavilion but for no more than two hours per week.
The Cougars begin their official practice schedule on Oct. 16.
Season tickets can be purchased for as low as $135.
The team enjoys six home games in the month of December, beginning Dec. 6 against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The home slate continues with showdowns against Troy (Dec. 14), Mississippi State (Dec. 19), The Citadel (Dec. 21), TCU (Dec. 23) and Louisiana Tech (Dec. 29).
