Transcript J Ihave family here and (UH) is close to home. I wanted to play for a program that has a chance to get better, and I think the University of Houston is moving in that direction. We're all on the same page. We've learned it doesn't matter how many players you have, it's how well you do on the court. Patricia Luckey Freshman/ Forward R/TV Communications |Coogs Learn To Cope With Life Season of hardship leaves ladies in fifth The season-long rollercoaster ride has finally come to a screeching halt for the Lady Cougars. Along the many twists and turns they picked up 11 wins coupled with 15 losses. Overall their stats may not be that impressive, but it landed the Coogs in fifth which entitled them to a slot at the Dr. Pepper Southwest Conference Classic. "You can't linger on the losses too long," said head coach Jessie Kenlaw. "It's over and the only thinng I'm telling myself is I can't let this happen again. I'm already mapping out next season." Throughout the season, Kenlaw witnessed her squad of thirteen deplete to a mere eight players because of various injuries. Before the regular season was even underway Yvette Westbrooks and Shelsea Fore were lost for the year. During the regular season Sandra Perkins and Niki Washington were also out because of injuries. All four players could have been major contributing factors to the team, but unfortunately their season was cut short. As a result, Kenlaw was forced to play freshman sensation Pat Luckey out of her most productive small forward spot and use her in a roving forward-post combination. Her outstanding performance this season reveals her natural talent enough at any position. Averaging more than 19 points and eight rebounds Luckey lead the Cougars in both categories. With these numbers it's no wonder she was an All- SWC first team choice. Her stats become an important ingredient to Kenlaw's team next season. "She's been consistent as a freshman," Kenlaw said. "That's a lot you have to ask of a freshman. That's a good example of how talented she is." Now the only thing left to do is wait for the new arrivals. Houston signed 6-3 post Nakia Hill from the University of Georgia and Arizona State junior Stacey Johnson. Another expected signee is Tanda Rucker, a junior college player from Stanford who was part of the 1991 Cardinal championship team. The only thing missing from the Coog line-up is a tall power forward, "someone like Sharon Bennett (who's graduating)," Kenlaw said. Houston is only loosing four players due to graduation. Forward Bennett, guards Gigi Gaudet, Michelle Harris and post Chontel Reynolds appeared in the jerseys for the last time against SMU. "We're going to have a new look and a new attitude, so I'm looking forward to the next season," said Kenlaw. "We'll be young, but we'll be talented. (The transfers) are going to be used to winning, and hopefully they can bring that attitude with them." Although the regular season ended with a 73-66 loss to Rice, they sought to redeem themselves and try a little luck at the SWC tournament. Despite the team's efforts, during the first round, SMU managed an 82-73 win. Mental errors and poor shot selection undid the ladies. "We didn't capitalize on the free-throw line and didn't take care of the basketball in the clutch," said Kenlaw. "They were intense and determined, but it was the little things."- Adam King and Michelle Morgan efore the men took the court the ladies got to strut their stuff in the inter- squad exhibition game too. Senior Michelle Harris came to UH as a transfer from Wabash Valley Junior College in Illinois. While playing for the Lady Warriors she led the team the a second place finish in the Great Rivers Conference. Photo by Cesar Alvarez Be 304 6E> Sports
