Transcript LADY COUGARS BASKETBALL PRESS CLIP Jones ranks among basketball's greats ;v KENAN SINGLETON THE DAILY COUGAR How do you like your blasphemy? Many may call for my head for this next statement, but the greatest basketball player in UH history isn't Elvin Hayes or Hakeem Olajuwon or Clyde Drexler. Yes, those guys manhandled the competition during their tenures at UH and are among the NBA's 50 Greatest Players. But the greatest basketball player in UH history can't manhandle anyone. Meet UH's XX factor — senior Chandi Jones. The best female player on campus since she was a senior at Bay City high school (her father, David joined the coaching staff in 1999), Jones has morphed into the high woman in Houston's hardwood hierarchy. Need numbers? Jones has averaged i little over 23 points per game during her four-year career at UH. She led the country in scoring last season 127.5 ppg) and is 11th in the country this season (21.1). But Jones, much like the modern woman, is adept at multi-tasking. She is 16th in the country in steals (3.4 per game) and has averaged more than six rebounds during her career. Her most telling statistics are not her gaudy individual numbers, however. UH's winning percentages in head coach Joe Curl's two seasons before Jones were .185 (5-22) in 1998-99 and .250 (7-21) in 1999- 2000. And not a single postseason appearance. Since then? The Lady Cougars went 19-13 (.594) in Jones' freshman season, 26-8 the next (.764) and 15-13 last season. If Jones were on Connecticut or Tennessee, two of the nation's high- profile teams, she'd probably be Sears or Sony — a household name. Instead, she is the reigning two- time Conference USA Player of the Year (and the odds-on favorite to win her third consecutive honor). And she may become a fixture in households across the country when she is a high draft pick in the WNBA next season. This was a program that was DOA and MIA before Jones' arrival in 2000. No offense to Curl and company, but Chandi makes up reasons one through 22 that the Cougars are ranked No. 23 in the latest ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll. Sure, Curl and Co. are the recruiters, but Chandi is the recruiting tool. And Curl and Co. may draw up If Jones were on Connecticut or Tennessee ... she'd probably be Sears or Sony — a household name. the X's and O's, but Chandi supplies the most important letter — W. But, like her favorite childhood player, Michael Jordan, Jones can't do it alone. That's where Curl and Co. — junior forward Sancho Lyttle and senior guard/forward Nicole Oliver — come in. MJ never won one without Scottie Pippen or Phil Jackson. Neither can CJ. (Originally printed Feb. 4, 2004) CHANDI'S HONOR ROLL Some of Chandi Jones' top honors: • Conference USA Female Athlete of the Year • Conference USA Player of the Year (2002, 2003) • All Conference USA First Team (2001, 2002, 2003) • 2003 National Scoring Champion •Associated Press All- American Honorable Mention (2002, 2003) • Womenscollege hoops.com Third Team All- American(2003) • Women's Basketball News Services' Second Team All American (2002) • Women's Basketball Journal Freshman Ail- American First Team (2001) •Conference USA All Freshman First Team (2000) coach file: JOE CURL In his six seasons at UH, Joe Curl has helped the Lady Cougars claim national prominence. He boasts a 88-38 record at the helm of the Lady Cougars. In the 2003-2004 season, he recorded the team's highest number of wins in a season, 28, and led the team to the NCAA Championships for the first time since 1992. He has certainly brought the Cougars a long way, and learned a lor, since logging only 1 2 wins in his first two seasons as head coach.
