    Houston, Texas - University of Houston head basketball coach Tom Penders announced that Carlton Spencer, a 6-3, 185-pound guard, from College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, Calif., has signed to play with the Cougars in 2005-06.

    "Carlton is one of the best pure shooters in junior college basketball," Penders said. "He is from New Orleans and like a lot of kids from that area of the country, the University of Houston seems to be a popular place. It all started with Clyde Drexler, who was born there before playing at UH."

    Spencer was named a First-Team, All-State selection from among 96 community colleges in California after averaging 19.1 points, 6.2 assists and 5.7 rebounds as a freshman last season. He ranked 19th among the state's scoring leaders and 14th in assists. Spencer also shot 43.5 percent from the floor, including 31 percent beyond the three-point line, and 72 percent at the free throw line.

    Spencer signed with Houston after he led College of the Canyons to a 19-7 overall record and a Western State Conference championship with a 10-2 conference record. It was College of the Canyons' first conference championship in 10 years.

    Spencer went to College of the Canyons after earning First-Team, All-City and All-District honors as a senior at West Jefferson High School in New Orleans.
