In their best start since 1991, the Lady Cougars have their first foothold on the AP rankings, coming in at No. 22 in the poll released Dec. 6.
Helping their way into the AP poll was an impressive win over No. 14 Purdue in the last week of November, when the Lady Cougars were ranked 24th in the ESPN Coaches Poll.
Senior center Sancho Lyttle was named Conference USA Player of the Week after a stellar performance in the Lady Cougars' last three games, in which Lyttle averaged 18 points and 11 rebounds per game.
