ABOUT THE COUGARS
A year ago, the Cougars used a strong surge at the end of the season to win four straight games in as many days to win the GMC Sierra Conference USA Championship title and advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in nearly two decades.
With seven returning players from that team and an award-winning signing class, Dickey and his coaches are planning for an exciting 2010-11 campaign.
Houston has enjoyed tremendous success in front of the hometown fans inside Hofheinz Pavilion during recent years. The Cougars have won at least 10 home games in each of the last six seasons, a first since the facility opened with nine consecutive 10+-win home seasons.
