Lady Coogs won't miss Flight

By Christian Schmidt
The Daily Cougar

The Lady Cougars will finish up the exhibition season as the team takes on the Houston Flight tonight at 7 p.m. in Hofheinz Pavilion. On Monday, UH destroyed the Houston Jaguars, 88-64, in a game that wasn't even that close.

The Flight is a traveling team of former collegiate players and current professionals that play college teams in exhibition games.

Head coach Joe Curl will be looking for improvement in several areas from his team. The Lady Cougars had 30 turnovers against the Jaguars, something that will make it hard to win as the season progresses.

Curl said he wants a more consistent effort from his team throughout the game. Houston played great basketball for the first 10 minutes of the game, but fell into sloppy play for much of the rest of the game, though the outcome was never in doubt.

On the plus side, the Lady Cougars showed considerable depth in Monday's game, using its entire bench. Ten players played at least nine minutes, and all those players scored.

Junior guard Chandi Jones scored 17 points in the game and sophomore backcourt mate Shondra Bush led the Cougars in scoring with 18 points and had a team-high four assists.

Junior forward Nicole Oliver and sophomore center Kiemona Harris topped the team with nine and eight rebounds, respectively.

The team will have a few days off before its next game, the regular season opener against Ball State on Nov. 22. The team will play Ball State and either Indiana or Wofford at the Indiana Tournament.
