Transcript 9BJ B i wmmmmimm k v, i « ci e Burke ^^^" uy i_a In front of an energized crowd in their first home post-season game in school history, the University of Houston Lady Cougars went on a late drive as the game wound down to the closing minutes and took control en route to downing cross-town rival Rice by a final of 67-65 in the first round of the Women's National Invitational Tournament on Wednesday, March 13. Houston posted first post-season victory since 1991 over their cross-town rival Rice. The Cougars went on to a birth in the WNIT Championship Game, securing the most wins in the teams history. University of Houston Lady Cougar sophomore guard Chandi Jones, the 2002 Conference USA Player of the Year, received an SCORES Honorable Mention on the 2001- 2002 AP Women's All-America basketball team. She received this award through her endurance and dedication to her team. "Never give up and always keep your head up," Jones said. However, their experience of the team posed a few problems for the Lady Cougars. "Being young, some times there were many challenges with our team," coach Joe Curl Said. The girls were very young, with most players only 18 years old. That was where the coach came into play because he was always trying to keep things positive and improving each practice and each game. "Our goal was to always finish in the top spot in the Conferences, and if not, then certainly one of the top four spots," Coach Joe Curl said. But more importantly than the record and their successes on the court, the Lady Cougars were also really working hard in the community and in the classroon. "The Lady Cougars were always getting out into the community, and we asked each of them to put in a minimum of 50 hours of community service during the academic year. We had several of the girls with over 100 hours of community service, and none had under 75 hours," Coach Joe Curl said. Additionally in the classroom, the team had at least six girls well above a 3.0 GPA, and their overall team GPA is a historically-high 2.94.
