Lady Cougars CRUISE throug "lDelieving and Achieving" were the code words for the successful Lady Cougar Basketball Team this year as they came ou t to the best start in team history. Head Coach Jessie Kenlaw moved confidently into her second season, and created the phrase to encourage her players to become winners. "A great deal of our success last season came as a result of our girls believing in themselves and there teammates," said Kenlaw. "My staff and I are constantly trying to motivate them to have confidence in themselves and there abilities both on the court and in the classroom." Kenlaw also looked to instill confidence in her team that they could compete with any team in the country, then they set out to do it. Out of their first 15 games, the Lady Coogs lost only once to Alabama, and many of the wins weren't even close. Just look at the score for UH vs. Prairie View A&M during the Lady Cougar Invitational, 112-42. A win over the Lady Razorbacks of Arkansas and over long- time nemesis Lady Longhorns of Texas made the AP coaches look, and put the team up as high as 11th in their weekly polls. The Lady Cougars played aggressively and up-tempo, tiring out several opponents. Post Darla Simpson and guard LaShawn Johnson lead the team with scoring and rebounding, and with the addition of Margo Grahm the aggressiveness got turned up a notch. The win over Texas was the teams first in history. The game in Hofheinz Pavilion made the Lady Cougars record 1-45 over h early season wins... Texas. Texas usually goes undefeated every season with their strong women's program, so beating them was no small feat The team also jumped into the SWC race by winning over Baylor and Rice as classes started for the Spring semester The learn then look a step back in the polls when they lost to Stephen F. Austin State in Nacogdoches. Stephen R was ranked seventh and they played up to billing In beating the Lady Cougars by 25 points. The teamshot31 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 24 times in the defeat. This was followed by another loss to thealso- ranked Texas Tech team. It was closer than the SFA drubbing, but the women still d id not score over 65 points. The team by Thomas Nguyen scored 70 points or more in all of the Lady Cougar victories earlier. Poor shooting still plagued the team as they shot 37 percent from the field. It took a last second overtime win to beat the Lady Aggies at home. LaShawn Johnson contributed with 29 points and provided some necessary defense to preserve the victory. Darla Simpson scored a goal with 25 seconds left in overtime to take the lead, then Johnson wrestled with a Lady Aggie to prevent an Aggie desperation shot from going in. "LaShawn's our floor leader," said Kenlaw after the game. "She's been in a slump the last two games, but she played well." A win ovdHHHpBHki Cougars, allowing five players to score in double digits, but only after they cooled a hot start by the Horned Frogs. Continued on next page. 134 Sports Basketball 135
