Lady Cougars Fall to TCU

Jan. 30, 2005

Box Score

The University of Houston's women's basketball team fought hard against Conference rivals TCU, but fell for the first time at home this season, 63-55, on Sunday at Hofheinz Pavilion. The star match-up coming in was supposed to be Houston's senior post Sancho Lyttle against TCU's senior post Sandora Irvin, but three fouls in the first half for each put them on the bench less than eight minutes into the game. For Houston, Daphne Andre picked up the slack scoring ten of her game-high 17 points in the first half. Houston trailed at the half 31-30, however, because of TCU's hot shooting from behind the arc. The Horned Frogs were 7-of-9 for three's in the first half. The second half saw the lead switch hands five times in the first ten minutes of the half. The Lady Cougars took a three-point lead with 10:56 left off two free throws by Andre. Unfortunately for Houston, TCU reeled off a 9-0 run in the next three minutes to gain a 54-48 lead off an Irvin three-pointer. Houston never recovered and fell to TCU, 63-55. Joanne Overstreet added 13 points and six rebounds, and Kiki Harris chipped in with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Lyttle was held to nine points and nine rebounds. Houston lost mainly due to their shooting - 30 percent in the game (19-of-64) and were 21 percent from behind the arc (4-of-19). Houston falls to 14-5 on the year and 5-2 in Conference USA play. Houston next hits the court on Tuesday at Texas A&M- Corpus Christi, and then comes home on Saturday to play St. Louis. The Saturday game is a 7 p.m. start, and after the game Chandi Jones will have her No. 13 retired.
