Although she sports No. 13 for the UH women's basketball team, sophomore guard Chandi Jones has been anything but bad luck for the 19-6
Lady Cougars.

The Cougars hope to continue the trend they have set in the last few weeks. Winners of five in a row and 10 of their last 11, the Cougars are
heating up.

Sophomore Chandi Jones continues to lead the Cougars. Jones needs 12 points to get 1,000 for her career. If she sets the mark this weekend,
Jones will become the fastest player in C-USA and UH history to reach the mark.

Jones was also named C-USA Player of the Week for the week ending Feb. 17. It is the fourth time Jones has earned the honor this season, the
second in two weeks.

Jones and her teammates play at 7 p.m. Friday against the Marquette Golden Eagles (14-11, 9-3 C-USA).

Marquette should arrive hungry for a win. After dominating early, Marquette has been reeling. The team has lost four of its last five, and is coming
off a 58-72 loss to Cincinnati.

The Golden Eagles are led by junior Rachel Klug. The 6-1 forward is a force in the middle, averaging 13 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Heading up the backcourt is speedy sophomore Kelly Schwerman. Schwerman has averaged seven points and has 30 steals this year. 

At 2 p.m. Sunday, the Cougars will take on DePaul (15-10, 8-4) in their final game of the regular season.

The Blue Demons are one of the best teams in C-USA. The Cougars will have their hands full containing DePaul's Lenae Williams. The 6-1
senior has averaged 22.4 points per game, leading the Blue Demons in scoring in all but one game.

The Blue Demons are anchored down low by 6-4 Jamie Smith. Smith has averaged 7.2 rebounds and has 69 blocks on the season.
