Led by first-year head coach Todd Buchanan, the Cougars posted 26 wins that included a 17-game winning streak. Aaron Cisneros WOMEN'S BASKETBALL By Joshua Siegel Todd Buchanan's return to UH as head coach was perfect. Buchanan's up-tempo style suited the Cougars roster, as he led UH to a 16-0 mark in Conference USA play, its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005 and numerous individual milestones and honors. The Cougars started the season with a bang, running off a 134-65 victory over Huston Tillotson and an 88-48 win over UT Arlington in their first regular season match. UH's offense continued to knock opponents out all season, as it picked up 11 of its 26 regular season victories by at least 15 points. The Cougars opened the season strong with an 8-1 record, but an injury to C-USA Player of the Year Courtney Taylor combined with an out of conference schedule featuring Nebraska, Georgetown and Louisville proved to be UH's first challenge of the season. The Cougars went 1-2 in Taylor's absence with losses to Georgetown and Lamar. Upon Taylor's return, the Cougars cruised to a 78-48 win over Tulsa to open conference play and would spark their run to the C-USA regular season crown. Their biggest tests during the regular season came in their final two games. UH trailed rival Rice 41-27 at halftime of their second to last game, but a 17 point, seven rebound second half from Taylor helped the Cougars rally to a 74-70 win. In their final regular season game, Tulane took the Cougars to overtime, but UH prevailed, outscoring the Green Wave 17-11 in the extra period and winning 90-84. The Green Wave would prove a difficult foe again though in the C-USA Tournament. After squeaking past UTEP 68-64, the Cougars would fall 70-60 to Tulane in the second round. Despite all of their success, the Cougars fell to West Virginia in their opening round match of the NCAA Tournament 79-73. Buchanan's success earned him C-USA Coach of the Year. Taylor was a double-double machine for the Cougars, averaging 15.7 points and 11.1 rebounds for the season en route to C-USA Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors. Taylor was joined on the All-Conference USA First Team by guards Porsche Landry and Brittney Scott [120] Inside the Pride Sports [121]
