Combining the drive and enthusiasm of a first-year coach with the wisdom and experience of a true mentor, Kenlaw is as prepared as ever for success as she brings her sixth team into a new season. Just the fourth head coach in UH history, Kenlaw took over the program on April 2,1990, and immediately led it to new heights. In her first season, the Lady Cougars reached the NWIT and in the first round, earned their first-ever post-season victory. Her squad scored a school record 81 points per game that year and won 20 games as Kenlaw was named National Women's Coach of the Year by the Black Coaches' Association. However, 1992 was the watershed year for Kenlaw and her Lady Cougars. UH won 22 games and ended the year with the second-best winning percentage in school history (.733) while ranking as high as 11 th in the nation in both national polls. In all, Houston was a regular in the polls for 14 consecutive weeks en route to its second ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Her team was in the race for the SWC regular-season title for much of the 1995 season, and a first-round tournament win propelled UH to the semifinals for the first time since 1992. Prior to being named head coach, Kenlaw served as the top assistant to Greg Williams, the second winningest coach in Lady Cougar history and the man Kenlaw will pass on the UH all-time coaching victory list with 15 more wins this season. She was also an assistant coach at Lamar in 1987-88 after coaching AAU basketball from 1982-87. A pioneer player in the Women's Professional Basketball League, Kenlaw played five seasons with three teams from 1978-82. As a rookie, she helped the Houston Angels to the WPBL title.
