How lovely are thy -- hey, look! Neiman's is having a sale: The Galleria's Christmas tree provides a holiday centerpiece for shoppers and ice skaters alike. The shopping mall and the Uptown district sport thousands of lights in celebration of the holiday season.

 
Athletics director stands behind hiring record in face of discrimination suit

W. Basketball enjoys time in 'Paradise,' trounces Lady Ealges

The Lady Cougars' tough schedule, which has pitted them against some of the best teams in college basketball, has apparently paid off: Houston was able to take a decisive 73-60 win over Eastern Washington in the first round of the Paradise Classic in Hawaii.
