Houston (15-2, 4-0) used their defense all night to create opportunities, picking up 14 steals and scoring eight fast break points. The Lady Cougars domination in the post was also key for the win as Houston out scored the Bearcats 32-12 in the paint.

Sancho Lyttle sank nine of her 11 shots from the floor for 19 points and All American Chandi Jones finished with a game high 23 points for the Lady Cougars. Point guard Joann Overstreet finished with seven points and grabbed a game high seven rebounds.
