Transcript A SEASON OF STREAKS The Cougars dig an early hole before climbing out with long winning streaks Continued from page 242 Noble was named Sportsman of the Year by the Recycled Baseball Items Foundation of Houston, in part because his team had a cumulative 2.85 grade point average last season. The team faltered at times, going through long losing streaks before rebounding to break .500 midway through the season. While it may have finished barely above that mark (29-28), the Cougars showed that Nobles steady influence could spark even the youngest of teams to make fans proud. The baseball team took it to Rice, blowing them out early in the series only to lose by the slimmest of margins on two separate occasions. The Owls may have gotten the upper hand, but the Cougars served notice that even a rebuilding team could surprise the better squads. Eventually, that inexperience cost UH a chance to repeat as C-USA champions. Entering as the No. 5 seed, Houston let a four-run lead evaporate against Louisville, losing 6-5 and ending its run in the conference tournament. But that wasn't the end for the Cougars. UH was surprised with an NCAA Regional selection — the same Regional that includes Rice. Ace in the hole Freshman right-handed pitcher Brad Sullivan became the No. 1 starter for the Cougars in 2001. Sullivan's 3.32 ERA and 93 strikeouts were badly needed after UH lost former stars Shane Nance and Kyle Crowell.
