UH Lady Cougars Open 2011 NCAA Tournament Play

I'm sitting in front of the television watching the NCAA women's tournament action and in addition to checking out how my brackets are holding up, I'm focused on my alma mater.

The Lady Cougars are in the tournament for the first time since 2005 and take on West Virginia in a Dallas Region matchup in Waco.    The winner gets the daunting task of probably facing Brittany Griner and the number one seeded Baylor Lady Bears in the second round on their Ferrell Center home court.

No matter what happens, the UH women ballers have had an excellent season.   They went unbeaten in taking the C-USA regular season title and finished the regular season ranked number 24 in the nation.

The run is starting to pay dividends recruiting wise since the Houston area is a hotbed of basketball talent in the Lone Star state on both the men's and women's side.

Good luck and eat 'em up Lady Cougars!
