Transcript But the team STALLS in conference showdowns 1 hen it was time for another couple of road games, and two more losses. The Lady Mustangs managed to pull out a close game, making SMU the only unranked team to beat the UH team. Thenagameagainst Texas in 'theDrum' started with the Lady Cougars leading at half- time, but Texas returned, Darla Simpson fouled out with four minutes to go and eventually the team fell 80-70. over 7,000 Texas fans showed up for the game. There was more bad news for the team. Sophomore Sharon Bennett was told not to play by her doctor, and Senior forward Voccia Calhoun was in an auto accident. The injuries left the team with only eight players, a serious lack of depth. "The loss of a UH women's basketball game showed up. 3,827 showed up to watch the Lady Cougars lose to Tech's Lady Raiders 85-60. The Lady Cougars then proceeded to win the three remaining games in the regular season. TheteamfoundsuccessoverTexasA&M and TCU in away games, then came home for SMU. The game in Hofheinz would be the last home game for graduate student Simpson and seniors Johnson and Kellye Jones. The win over SMU was lackluster, but it set up some momentum for the Southwest Con- ference Tournament. The first opponent was Rice, where they won in a low scoring affair, 63- 57, but by luck of the draw, the second game was against the Texas, who hadn't lost in a tournamentsincewho- knows-when. photo by Thomas Nguyen Voccia Calhoun has hurt us a great deal," said Kenlaw. "The eight players we have are capable of upsetting some good teams, we will just have to dig deeper." They did digdeeper with two winsover BaylorandRice.WhileUH'srankinghadslipped to 21st, the Lady Coogs were able to win over Rice on the road, breaking a four road game losing streak. With fewer foul troubles and great defense, the Lady Cougars were able to overcome some low scoring at Autry Court. 'It was our full-court press that did it," said Margo Grahm. 'It helped us take control of the game." Kenlaw said that it would be important for the team's chances to make the NCAA Tour- nament, to win the last four regular season games,but Texas Tech, thenextopponenthadn't lost a game yet. The Tech game was promoted as Tack the Pavilionnighf and the largest crowd ever for 136 Sports The short staffed Lady Cougars again got into foul trouble after a first half lead, and they couldn't get back the lead as a strong press stopped their scoring. The Lady Cougars lost that game 60-70, but the Lady Longhorns lost in the finals as Texas Tech won the SWC Women's Basketball crown. Texas Tech, Texas and UH all were tapped for the NCAA tournament. It was only the second invite for the UH squad, the first coming in 1988. The first opponent? University of California-Santa Barbara's Lady Gauchos. The place? UCSB. Because UH didn't attract as manyfans,thehigherrankedLadyCoogshadto play away where the Lady Gauchos filled their arena by the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, large crowds seem to be bad news fro the Lady Cougars as the lost 80-69.
