UH Women Ballers Achieve Perfection

It was Senior Day at Hofheinz Pavilion and the Number 24 ranked Houston Cougars women ballers were on a mission to not only extend their school record winning streak, but become only the second women's team in C-USA history to go through the season unbeaten.

Tulane made them work for it, but in keeping with the theme of the day five UH seniors scored a combined 82 points to lead the Cougars to a thrilling 90-84 overtime win to finish C-USA conference play with a 16-0 record and notch their 16th straight win. 

The now 25-4 Cougars we led by Brittney Scott's game high 28 points with Courtney Taylor chipping in 24. 

They have probably clinched a NCAA women's tournament bid for the first time since the 2003-04 season no matter what happens in the C-USA tournament, but if they keep winning they can definitely improve their seeding.

To the unbeaten UH victors go the spoils of a first round bye in the upcoming C-USA women's tournament in El Paso that starts March 9.  They'll take on the winner of the UTEP-SMU game

Eat 'em up!
