High School Basketball – Former Cougar achieving success as coach
Phi Slama Jama playmaker and all-time UH assist leader Reid Gettys is again the leader of a team in the postseason, only now he does his work from the sidelines.
Gettys led the Woodlands Christian Academy to the 3-A TAPPS state tournament with a 22-15 record. They will open the playoffs against Mansfield Summitt at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Gettys took over as head coach one game before district play after former coach Bill Storey stepped down.
After going to three consecutive Final Fours with the Cougars, he played professionally in the Continental Basketball Association. Gettys returned to UH as an assistant on Clyde Drexler’s staff. He has also worked as an analyst for ESPN.
