HOUSTON - Led by three players with double digit scoring, the University of Houston women's basketball team cruised past the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders 66-44 Wednesday afternoon at Hofheinz Pavilion. The win improved Houston's record to 10-2 for the season.
After a slow start in the first half, the Lady Cougars found their offense, scoring 42 points in the second half to pull away from Corpus Christi. Nicole Oliver led the offensive attack for Houston, knocking down all four of her three point attempts, scoring 12 of her game high 15 points in the second half.
