UH Lady Cougars Ballers Keep Winning

In what is turning out to be the best season ever for the University of Houston women's basketball program, they rode the sizzling shooting of Brittney Scott to beat Marshall 72-54 for their school record 14th straight win.

Scott scorched the Thundering Herd for 24 points with 6 for 10 shooting from behind the three point arc as the now 25th ranked Cougars improved their record to 23-4 on the season and are now only two wins away from an unbeaten romp through Conference USA.

They clinched the conference championship with a 77-61 win over UTEP last week and have two games left on their schedule standing between them and becoming the second C-USA women's team to go unbeaten. 

The Cougar lady ballers battle our crosstown rivals at Rice and have a Tuesday night regular season finale at Hofheinz with Tulane before they head to El Paso to play in the C-USA tournament.

Looks like I'll have a reason to watch the Selection Monday coverage on ESPN when they announce the teams that will be going to the NCAA womens tournament.
