Transcript Young team puts up a good fight Inexperience could be a way to sum up the Lady Cougars' basketball season. Head Coach Greg Williams suffered the loss of four starters from the '87-88 team that went 22-7 and received a birth in the NCAA tournament. Of the five starters, three were sophomores, as Williams had the youngest team in school history. Overall UH only had two seniors and one junior on the team but, nonetheless, still produced a winning season with a 16-12 overall record and a 9-7 conference mark. Their conference record put the Lady Cougars into a third place tie in Conference play, and into the number four seeded position in the Southwest Conference post season classic. The Lady Cougars' first opponent in the tournament was top seeded Texas A&M. If psychological factors played a part, UH should have had an edge as they had never lost a first round game. The Aggies, however, had beaten UH twice this season, and topped that by knocking the Lady Cougars out of the tournament with an 86-73 win. UH played five Top 20 teams in the season, including Louisiana State University, whom UH defeated 83-72. The key to the victory was free throws, as the Lady Cougars made 40 trips to the charity stripe, sinking 26. Two players were named to the All SWC teams for their play during the season. Senior forward Sallie Routt, a graduate of Clements High School in Sugarland, was named to the first team All SWC as she averaged just over 19 points and nine rebounds per game, including a 37 point performance against Rice. Junior guard Jana Crosby was named to the second team All SWC. Crosby was deadly from three-point range hitting 47 percent and holding every single game and season three-point record. She also had 66 assists for the season and an 85 percent free-throw record. Crosby averaged 15 points per game and had a career high 28 points against Arkansas. Although Coach Williams lost four starters and had an overall inexperienced team, he still led them to a winning season. Next year the Lady Cougars should be tough as only two players will be lost and experience will have been gained. ► Tom Fontaine Freshman center Darla Simpson (4) looks past an SMU defender for an open player.
