Transcript Lady Coogs Beat Odds In what was to be a rebuilding year after the graduation of three starters, the Lady Coogs upset predictions of a 5th place SWC standing and matched their '86 record, with a 3rd place slot. The women ended their 11th straight winning season with a 19-10 overall record and a conference record of 10-6. Their 79.9 points per game average was the highest in UH history as well as the second highest scoring offense in the 1986-87 SWC season. After this impressive season, the Lady Coogs went on to defeat Baylor 70-52 in the SWC Post Season Tournament. However, Arkansas beat the ladies in a close, high-scoring semi-finals game, 96-82, despite the excellent performance by UH players. Senior, Dejuena Carter, all SWC guard, led the SWC in regular season scoring and set a UH record for scoring in double figures in 28 consecutive games. Carter, with 1,102 career points, is the 8th UH woman basketball player to score over 1,000. SWC Newcomer of the Year, junior center Missy Davis, led the SWC in blocked shots with 45. She also ranked number one in free throw percentage with 79.9, making 99 of the 125 she attempted. Davis was also ranked among the top five scorers, with 327 points this season. Defensively, the Lady Coogs pressed hard with 439 steals, and forced 749 turnovers. Senior guard Bridget Chaney had 101 steals, ranking her among only ten in UH history to steal more than 100 times in a season. A weakness the Lady Coogs exhibited was in their 3-point shooting. They attempted only 16 3-point shots this season, and made only 3. On the other hand, their opponents made 31 of 93 attempts. Head Coach Greg Williams said, "the ladies are more inside-oriented and shoot the sure shots unless they're playing a catch-up game." Williams added, the 3- point shot "will probably not be a big weapon in the 87-88 season, as well." With four starters returning in the 87-88 season and six promising recruits joining the Lady Coogs ranks, Williams expects at least 20 wins, a second place conference title, and a bid in the NCAA Tournament. —Darrell Hutto Front row (I-r) Bridget Chaney, Cozette Ealy, Dejuena Carter, and Carla Fountain.
