After leading BK Ventspils of the Latvian League to a berth in the elimination playoffs last season, former University of Texas-Pan American standout Mire Chatman signed a one-year contact with Pau-Orthez, the 2003-04 French League Champions, for the upcoming season.

Chatman played a critical role in BK Ventspils’ back-to-back Latvian League Championships where he averaged 20.8 points per game during the regular season in 2004. In nine career ULEB Cup games, he averaged 19.0 points, 4.1 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 steals per contest.

A two-year starter for the Broncs, Chatman finished his career with 1,282 career points, which ranks him ninth on the program’s all-time scoring list. His 183 career assists ranked him second in program history and was sixth among all players with 115 career three-point field goals made. He concluded his career with the third highest percentage (.382) from behind the arc and fourth in field goal percentagemire-chatman-ventspils-ec14-photo-evgeniy-nasonov-smm-lokomotiv-kuban

Chatman led UTPA to one of its best finishes in history in 2001-02 when the Broncs wrapped up their season with a 21-9 record, including a victory in the championship game of the San Juan Shootout against Baylor. That season, he averaged 26.2 points per game and set a program-record with 105 steals.

Chatman was named the Independent Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in his career following the 2001-02 season. He became the Bronc’ first All-American since 1980-81.
