Senior Leaders The Lady Coogs were led by seniors who were on the 1988 NCAA Tournament team. Arlene Brown and Mildred Williams helped to put the team together and give it its winning characteristics. Brown came to UH in 1987 and averaged 3.6 points per game and had 50 assists helping to propel the team to its first ever NCAA Tournament. "I was recruited by a lot of schools in my senior uear but I chose UH because I liked the coaches and the players, and whenever I came here for a visit everyonetreated me great and I had a lot of fun," she said. After that first year she steadily increased her scoring average and was the team's leading scorer averaging 14 points per game in the 1990-91 season. She also moved into third place among UH all-time assist leaders with 323. Brown said she has enjoyed her career at UH and 1990-91 was her favorite season. "My teammates have made this season my best year," she said. "This team is closer than any team I've been on since arriving at UH. We have fun together on and off the court and we really like each other, we have the right chemistry." Being only one of two seniors on the team Brown said there is a lot of pressure on her to lead the team and it really makes her nervous. "I'm really going to miss this team when I graduate but I believe they have the potential to be just as good as the 1988 team or better once they really get the hang of each other s play," Brown said. Mildred Williams, the 5'10" forward and the only other senior on the team, has also been a team leader for the Lady Coogs. Williams said she always knew UH was the place for her whethter or not she received a scholarship. She has a sister that she wanted to come to UH while she was still in junior high. In 1990-91 Williams was fourth on the team in scoring, averaging 11.3 points per contest. "I think this is my most productive season. I'm more comfortable on the court and I know the girls better and how they will play," she said. Williams said this has also veen her favorite season because this team is closer than any team she has played on and the girls really like each other and get along well. "I don't feel like there is a lot of pressure on me to lead the team because we have such strong, young players and they can pick up a lot of the work and carry themselves," she said. -Courtesy Daily Cougar 306 ^Jf~ Sports Women's Basketbait 307
