Richmond, Va. - University of Tulsa Head Basketball Coach Doug Wojcik was selected to the Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball Silver Anniversary team, it was announced today. The team includes 16 former CAA Players of the Year, nine All-America selections and seven NBA draft picks.
As part of its 25th Anniversary celebration in 2009-10, the CAA is recognizing Silver Anniversary teams in 21 championship sports. The teams are selected by a panel of current and former head coaches in the conference.
Wojcik teamed with fellow Silver Anniversary team selections David Robinson and Vernon Butler to lead Navy to the NCAA Elite Eight in 1986 with victories over Tulsa, Syracuse and Cleveland State.
Wojcik started every game at point guard for three seasons, helping Navy post a three-year record of 82-17. He helped lead Navy to three conference championships and three NCAA Tournament appearances.
The native of Wheeling, West Virginia, earned second-team All-CAA honors and received Navy's Calvert Award in 1986-87. He still holds the CAA records for assists in a season (251) and a career (714).
Wojcik enters his fifth season as the Tulsa head coach. He has compiled a four-year mark of 81-53, and has led the Golden Hurricane to three straight 20-win seasons, two back-to-back 25+ campaigns, appearances in the 2008 and 2009 Conference USA Championship Game, the inaugural postseason College Basketball Invitational title in 2008 and the school's ninth appearance in the NIT in 2009.
With his 81 victories, Wojcik ranks sixth on the school's career coaching wins list, passing the likes of former Tulsa coaches Tubby Smith and Bill Self.
Tulsa begins practice on October 16th.
