Transcript H ead coach Joe Curl knew before the 2004-05 season that he was going to have to play more of an inside out game than he had in several seasons, scaling back the transition game that distinguished his offense in 2003-04. Last season, the scoring duo of forwards Chandi Jones and Sancho Lyttle led the Lady Cougars basketball team to the top of the Conference USA standings and a three seed in the NCAA East Regionals. Curl was named 2003-04 Associated Press National Coach of the Year, and Jones earned a lottery selection in the WNBA draft. With Jones's departure, Curl was left with the post scoring of Lyttle—a native of the British West Indies who has played four years of organized basketball. The 2004-05 Cougars never found the consistent perimeter shooting they needed to compliment Lyttle, but the team persevered. Curl turned to Daphne Andre, a 2004 transfer, and Kadi Creel, a freshman, for three-point shooting off his bench for outside scoring. The backcourt of Joann Overstreet and Crystal Simpson both shot below .400 from the field. The starting guards who ran a fastbreak alongside Chandi Jones in 2003-04 found value as half-court defenders this season. The Cougars ultimately won games by earning second-chance points off the offensive boards and adapting defensively to efficient offenses. Late in the season, Curl's unit was capable of pressing East Carolina into 21 turnovers and two days later outlasting a good Charlotte team by crashing the boards and feeding Lyttle in the post. With a 21-9 overall record and an NCAA tournament appearance, the 2004-05 Cougars lost surprisingly little ground from the previous season — they finished third in the conference standings, and reached the semifinals of the C-USA Tournament. (Continued on p. 122) oe Curl faced the difficulty this season of replacing one of the top scoring guards in school history with the post offense of a power forward. With Sancho Lyttle in the paint, UH earned a second consecutive NCAA Tournament berth. Story by Mark Smith B |2°
