Lady Cougars meet their match vs. NMSU Aggies

68-63 loss is third in a row for UH

The Lady Cougars' nine-game winning streak slipped further out of view Monday night as UH marked its third consecutive loss. 

The New Mexico State Aggies proved to be a near equal match for the Lady Cougars, keeping the game close but ultimately grabbing the 68-63 victory on their home court in Las Cruces, N.M.

After the losses -- the first against Wake Forest in Hawaii, the second against Long Beach in California -- Houston has lost its place on the Associated Press poll, though in this week's rankings it received a promising eight votes. Before Christmas, the Lady Cougars were ranked as high as No. 16.

Despite the best efforts of senior forward Sancho Lyttle, who scored 25 points -- as much as the Aggies' entire offensive production during the first half -- most of the Lady Cougars' powerful scorers were kept under wraps. The Aggies' top scorers, freshman guard Monique Bribiescas and senior guard Trecha Kennedy, both posted 18 points.

A notable performance from Lady Cougar freshman guard Jasmine Moore gave UH a 15-point boost -- all from behind the three-point line. 

The Lady Cougars stay on the road and will face Tulane on Friday.
