The 6-foot, 160-pound Brooks was the Pac-10's leading scorer
last season and finished his career as the Ducks' ninth all-time
scorer (1,511 points). He ranks fourth all-time in school history
in assists (471), sixth in steals (127) and shot 83 percent from
the free-throw line in his career.
The Rockets lost to Utah in the first round of the playoffs,
partly because Deron Williams outplayed Rafer Alston, Houston's
starting point guard the last two seasons.
