The Houston Chronicle looks at the impact families are having on Houston basketball. Klein High’s Harmatuk family is mentioned:
Another of those families, the Harmatuks, also is making an impact in northwest Houston.
John Harmatuk, boys coach at Cypress Springs, is in his 11th year with the Panthers. His younger brother, Scott, is in his first year as Klein Collins boys coach.
But they are just two of five boys in their family who have been involved in basketball. John, Scott and their three brothers played basketball at Klein High School and wore No. 22. Four of them went on to play college basketball.
Their father, also named John Harmatuk, coached in the summer basketball circuit for 10 years. With their family, it’s all ball all the time.
“Pretty much all that we did as a family was centered around basketball,” said the younger John. “The only times during family gatherings when we weren’t talking or arguing about basketball was when people made us stop.”
John and Margaret should be proud of their boys!
With 5:28 left in the game, the Mavericks trail 99-75. Dirk Nowitzki has a whopping 6 points. Ouch, what an embarrassing way to end one of the best regular seasons ever. A 67 win team bows out to a number 8 seed, Golden State and your MVP candidate barely even shows up.
Cuban must be dying inside. How many heads will roll after this game?
UPDATE: Final score Golden State Warriors 111 – Dallas Mavericks 86. Don Nelson will be celebrating all summer long in Hawaii.
Bayor University just can’t catch a break.
Looks like there is something seriously wrong in Waco.
The Houston Rockets cashed in on their international appeal when sources close to the team confirmed Wednesday that Toyota Motor Corp. will buy the naming rights of Houston’s new downtown arena.
Houston is the international city in Texas and this looks like a great deal for the city and the Rockets. Yao Ming could lead the Rockets to the promised land sooner than Les Alexander could have ever imagined. Let’s just hope he’s healthy.
By the way, how did I miss this new logo? Why change again? Oh right, new stadium, new logo (Rangers, Astros, Mavericks). The Stars and Spurs did not change their looks however. Let’s just hope Jerry doesn’t get any ideas!
