Transcript A Big Dose of Sunshine Graham's personality keeps things light for Coogs Margo Graham was the closest thing to .pure sunshine off the court, but on the court she can be nothing but trouble for Cougar Foes. The center for the Lady Cougar's basketball team could laugh at just about anything. "You can't be in a bad mood," said Grahm, in her last season at Houston. "Life's too short. You have to have fun." Coach Jessie Kenlaw discovered Graham's cheerfulness an invaluable trait. "When we bring in recruits , they all remember Margo because she's a fun person to be around," she said. She was also an excellent player. Graham made plays happen, and didn't take no for an answer. She was able to drive around or through someone for a layup, hit turnaround 10- footers or make a jumper from the goal line. The 6-2 Graham improved her skills playing against other UH atheletes on the courts at Cougar Place. "I do play a lot of the football players," she said. "They underestimate my strength. They think, 'You're a girl and girls shouldn't be able to do that.' That's a wonderful feeling." Graham met her boyfriend, superback Lamar Smith, playing basketball. "He likes an agressive woman," she said, laughing. Unfortunately, Graham didn't always take her game so seriously, much to the dismay of Coach Kenlaw. "Coach Kenlaw gets upset with me," she said. "If I mess up, OK, I messed up." Graham put up several stats on the board in a game with Texas, 26 points and 16 rebounds. Kenlaw wished that she would play like that every night. "Texas brings out the competitiveness out in her," said Kenlaw. "She doesn't realize she has to do it every night." That sunny disposition was all hers and not a defense for her size. "I've never had that fat-girl syndrome because I was an athlete," she said. "It makes you popular because people want you on your team." Her lack of seriousness got her into trouble, though. After a loss to Auburn, Graham and teammate Stephanie Edwards went out with a male cousin of Margo's who attended Auburn. They didn't tell Coach Kenlaw. At the Lady Cougar's next game against Texas Tech, where Graham spent her freshman year, Coach Kenlaw made Graham and Edwards sit the bench as the Cougars lost 93-41. "People kept yelling, Tut Margo in,'" she said. "That was tourture. It was the longest 40 minutes of my life." "That was a very bad decision on my part," she said. "But you learn from bad decisions.'-Michael Edwards 158 Sports
