Jan. 5, 2004

Box Score

MURFEESBORO, TN - The University of Houston women's basketball team improved to 9-2 on the season Monday afternoon with a 67-63 win over the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at the Murphy Center in Murfeesboro TN.

The Lady Cougars held off a late Blue Raider run in the second half to win their fourth straight game. Chandi Jones led the way for Houston with a game high 24 points, 14 of which came in the second half.

Jones' layup with 33 seconds remaining put Houston up 67-61 and on the other end of the court her block on a three point attempt by Patrice Holmes prevented MTSU from answering. Jennifer Justice put the blocked shot in for a lup for the Blue Raiders, but with just four seconds remaining in the game.

Houston jumped out to an early lead for the third straight game, opening the game on a 14-2 run which set the tone for the opening half. The Blue Raiders slowly chiped away at the Lady Cougar lead, geeting within eight points with 50 seconds remaining, but Jones got hot for Houston to open the game back up.

Houston ran a play for Jones who knocked down a three pointer to put the Lady Coogs up 11 and on the ensuing possession for Middle Tennesse, Houston's Nicole Oliver stripped the ball giving the Lady Cougars what appeared to be the final possession of the half. Instead of milking the clock Jones burried another three pointer putting Houston up 14.

Patrice Holmes finished the scoring in the opening period with a tip in lay up at the buzzer for Middle Tennessee to cut the Lady Cougar lead to 12 points at the half.

Adding to Jones game high 24 points was Sancho Lyttle and Joann Overstreet who scored 15 and 13 points respectively.

The Lady Cougars will be in action again Wednesday afternoon at 3 p.m. when they host Texas A&M Corpus Christi at Hofheinz Pavilion.
