My name is Chris Liput and I'm from Houston, TX. I grew up playing basketball every day when I was younger in High School. I grew up following the Houston Rockets and also the greatest college program never to win a championship in the University of Houston Cougars, which they were more known as Phi Slama Jama. I got my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Houston-Clear Lake campus in 1993. I'm currently going to start working on my Master’s Degree in Sports Leadership at Concordia University Chicago online through SMWW program. Before graduating with a Business degree, I first majored in Radio, Television, and Film. I broadcasted college and high school sporting events. I also had my own Radio Sports Show at KACC in Alvin, TX. The one constant side business I have had off and on was a Sports Consulting Business. Basically Sports Handicapping. Been fascinated how it has evolved over the years and really analytics plays a big role now, which I know is also used heavily in the Sports World

Basketball Experience:
Sports Management Worldwide; Portland, Oregon, USA
Basketball GM and Scouting, Certificate 2017
Training included: NBA and international collective bargaining agreement, NBA scouting techniques, scouting reports, NBA general manager practices, video editing thru Synergy Sports Technology and statistical analysis formulas. (Mentored by NY Knicks Director of Player Personnel, Mark Warkentien)

5 years Head Coaching Youth Basketball Teams.  My greatest joy wasn't winning at that level, but developing young boys into becoming young men. Focused on Basketball Fundamentals and many of my players were selected to play for their High School teams. We were also known for playing the most entertaining style of play in the league and high scoring offenses.
