Houston Cougars' teammates for the last two years, guards Corey Davis Jr. and Armoni Brooks will be teammates once again: Both begin their professional careers together after signing free-agent deals with the NBA's Washington Wizards on Thursday night.

Both players were key parts of the Cougars' record-setting season in 2018-19. Houston set a school record with 33 wins, captured the program's first outright conference title since 1984 and led the Cougars to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 for the first time in more than 30 years.

Brooks and Davis were two of three Cougars to join the Wizards on Thursday after guard Jonathon Simmons was traded to Washington from the 76ers.

Simmons led Houston with 14.7 points per game and grabbed 5.0 rebounds per contest while starting all but one game during the 2011-12 season.

In 2018-'19, Davis led Houston in scoring with 17.0 points per game and was one of Houston's and the American Athletic Conference's most prolific 3-point shooters, draining 111 treys in 296 attempts.

With 121 3-pointers in 2018-19, Brooks became only the sixth player in school history to drain 100+ treys in a single season and, with 229 in his career, he was only the fifth player to reach 200 or more.

Brooks also led the Cougars with 6.3 rebounds per contest and was one of only two players to rank among The American's Top-15 leaders in both scoring AND rebounding.
