Transcript Pass it on. Traci Bell comes to Houston with some impressive stats to make coach Jessie Kenlaw take notice. Bell is a two-time all-Oakland Athletic League selection and conference three- point shooting champion. As a freshman, she shot .421 from the three point line, the highest on the team. Photo by Adrees Latif It's time to get down and dirty. Chontel Reynolds has been caught in some pretty rough situations this season, but she seems to be getting the best of these SMU players. Photo by Thomas Nguyen This ball is mine! Coach Jessie Kenlaw describes Sharon Bennett as an agrressive player who likes contact around the basket, and I guess you'd have to be agressive to keep the ball away from these two. Although Houston did have home court advantage, Texas Tech handed the Lady Coogs their fifth loss in a row. Photo by Christobal Perez It's up to you ladies, t Coach Jessie Kenlaw looks back on .this season with the hopes of no repeat performances. Photo by Christobal Perez Simply unbeatable. Houston just couldn't stop SMU. The ladies lost both SWC games to the Mustangs by small margins, but it really doesn't matter how close you are when the buzzer rings at the end of the last quarter.

Hilliard, who has been away from Texas for the past eight years, is a 1981 graduate of UH. She was also a member of the 1977-1981 women's basketball team. After receiving her degree, she attended Michigan State University where she attained her master's in urban counseling. Froml986-1991 she went on to serve in a number of Michigan college and school districts. She comes back to UH from the University of North Carolina, where she has been an academic counselor since 1992. "The University of North Carolina is a model program and through the knowledge of their first-rate program I feel I can contribute back to the University of Houston," Hilliard said. "If there was no real commitment here I wouldn't have come back." Hilliard's job is to improve the gradual ion rate of student athletes and the process it takes to get it. She oversees all support programs and supervises the student athletic counselors. Any area of academics that involves athletes has to have Hilliard's stamp of approval. A study released by the NCAA of 291 division I schools for freshman entering in 1983-1984 and 1984- 1985 indicated that only 16 percent of student athletes earned a degree within six years. "Our graduation numbers are embarrassingly low. Our message is going to be (students) are here to get a degree," Carr said. This announcement led some faculty members to raise questions. Ernst Leiss of the Faculty Issues Committee feels a person with an academic background would better serve such a position. "You can't just get somebody in without discussion. Who determines about who is the ideal candidate?" Leiss said. He also believes a degree plan should be developed for student athletes. Leiss' idea of a degree plan for student athletes as well as many other big plans are being organized in a reconstruction plan called the Master Planning Process which should take five years to implement completely. As an alumni and former student athlete, Hilliard feels a strong committment to UH. Because the school had no academic support program in place for athletes she witnessed many friends fail to complete college. "Luckily the women's basketball secretary helped me get to the right offices. I had to see an advisor each semester before I could register for classes; this guy was a gruff character. He made me nervous, but I'm glad I went to see him because I would have been lost without him," Hilliard said. Hilliard feels the time to make a change is now. "(My goal is) that each and every student athlete graduates from the University of Houston with a meaningful degree in an area of their choosing, and they go out in the community to become an outstanding citizen in Houston, Texas, and the worlds-Michelle Morgan Sports Women's Basketball 63) 309
