Final Stats

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The University of Houston women's basketball team couldn't overcome a cold shooting performance on Sunday, falling to UAB in the Conference USA road opener by a score of 54-46 at Bartow Arena.

Senior guard Porsche Landry (16 points) and Marissa Ashton (14 points) scored in double figures for the Cougars, while junior center Yasmeen Thompson posted career highs of 18 rebounds and five blocks.

Houston (7-8, 1-1) was plagued by a cold shooting effort against the Blazers, connecting on only six field goals on 33 attempts (18 percent) in the second half for a 24-percent performance from the field for the game.

UAB (11-4, 2-0) jumped out to its biggest lead of the contest at 46-39 with just under five minutes remaining in the contest when Landry drained her second 3-pointer of the half to snap a six-minute scoring drought and bring the Cougars within four points.

Ashton followed suit, cutting a six-point deficit in half with a long-range bomb to put Houston within three points with 3:46 remaining in the contest.

Thompson split a pair of free throws as the Cougars clawed to within two points with 2:45 remaining in the contest, and the Blazers missed their next three free-throws attempts, but Houston couldn't convert on its next three possessions while trailing by only two points and failed to score again for the remainder of the contest.

Landry scored in double figures for the 14th time in 15 games this season and was 2-of-4 from beyond the arc and a perfect 8-of-8 from the charity stripe.

Ashton was 6-of-10 from the field, including a 2-of-4 effort from 3-point range, while Thompson added five points in her career performance.

The Cougars held their biggest lead of the contest late in the first half, building a 9-0 run for a 25-20 advantage with 1:12 remaining, but the Blazers trimmed the Houston advantage down to one with a jumper at the buzzer.

 

 

Houston turned the ball over 19 times, including 14 miscues in the first half, while outrebounding the Blazers by a 46-42 margin.

The Cougars return to action on Sunday against Marshall in Huntington, W.Va.
