Brooks Named 6th Man of the Year

(Patrick) #1

Brooks was one of only six Cougars to compete in all 30 games to date this season and has been a major factor as the 21st-ranked Cougars posted a 24-6 overall record and 14-4 mark in league play to tie for second under Head Coach Kelvin Sampson.

The Round Rock, Texas, native averaged 10.2 points per and 2.6 3-pointers per game and ranks among the league leaders in both 3-point field goal percentage and 3-point field goals made per game.

Brooks enjoyed double digit points in 17 games this season with four 20-point games, including a career-high 24 points against Prairie View A&M inside H&PE Arena on Dec. 17. He drained at least four 3-pointers in eight games this season, including a personal-best seven treys in home wins against SMU and ECU.

He became the third Cougar to pick up American Athletic Conference postseason honors. On Monday, senior guard Rob Gray was named to the league’s First Team, while freshman forward Fabian White Jr. earned a place on the All-Rookie Team.

His defense and rebounding also improved and he seems to be developing a mid range shot, which will serve him well.

Definitely the most improved player from last year.

Hopeful that Harris will take a leap in improvement for next year.


We saw flashes this year of him being able to make NBA-range 3s. If he and Corey Davis can get even better at that, they’ll create spacing nightmares for other teams ala Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon.
