HOUSTON--- The University of Houston women’s basketball team took a break from the playing court to spend some time with the kids from the Generation One Academy Wednesday afternoon.

The Cougars helped with homework, shared stories, and played games with over 25 second and third graders from the school, as members of the team talked about their student-athlete experiences, among other things.

“I think it’s very important for our program to give back to the city of Houston and put ourselves out there,” said interim head coach Wade Scott. “We’re lucky to be surrounded by a community that gives so much to our program and I think this was a good opportunity for our student-athletes to show their thanks and appreciation for what this community has provided them with.”

“We’re so grateful to Generation One for giving us the opportunity to come in and spend time with their students. They’re doing some really good things down there, and we’re very fortunate to have been able to play our small part.”

The Generation One Academy has hosted over 26,000 volunteers in an effort to help “at risk” kids of all ages in and around the Houston area. For more information on the organization, visit www.generationone.net
