Our best player. Not many of the over 50 UH teams I’ve followed that he wouldn’t have started and captained.

Benny would have been one of the top 50-100 of all-time had he Nate’s character/discipline/motor

I got to meet his parents last year, talking about nice, caring people. I told them how excited everyone was that there son chose the U of Houston. They said they were excited that U of H gave him this opportunity! These are very “humble” parents that were very greatful.

“Not to be about me, but if I don’t bring it, maybe some of the other guys look at me like, ‘Well that’s just the culture of the program.’ I take what I learned from Corey (Davis Jr.), Galen (Robinson Jr.), Breaon (Brady) — all those guys,” Hinton says of the leaders of last season’s record-setting 33-4 UH team.

That’s a great attitude and demonstrates the leadership of Hinton and of Coach Sampson. I love this.

Correct. I believe he posted this after visiting UH and interviewing Kelvin.

This. Good post CL.

I don’t know if it’s a new tradition or the restoration of an old one. But it’s good to see consistency in leadership transition–where the leaders are the hardest workers and best examples.

It’s that leadership (Sampson and Hinton and others) that makes me believe we can beat the Memphises (Memphisii?) of the world. We don’t start 5 NBA-level talented players, but I don’t think Memphis’ talented starting 5 works as hard as the Coogs.

memphis isnt even 5 nba talents especially with wiseman gone…its 1 nba talent, 2 nba as junior talents …the rest are decent … we have no preciouos but outside of him we might be more talented than them, if we are talking about how they look this season…

i actually think they work very hard, they full pressthe entire game but they arent a very organized team…their turnovers per game are outlandish
