Trailing 28-26 at the hlaf, the Lady Cougars came out quickly in the second half to jump out to a 34-33 lead which they would not give up the rest of the game.

All American Chandi Jones stole the ball from USM's Deondra Carter and raced down court for a layup to put the Lady Cougars up 36-33 and the offense contiued to click for the rest of the game. Houston shot 52.9 percent from the second half while holding the Golden Eagles to 28 points.

Houston head coach Joe Curl said the win was important because it put the Lady Cougars closer to their goal.

"That was a good team we beat tonight," Curl said. "We played well and it brings us another one fourteenth of the way to where we need to be. We have to approach these games (C-USA games) one at a time and tonight we took another step towards our goal."

The Lady Cougars were led by Jones who scored 23 points and Sancho Lyttle who picked up her eighth double double of the season with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Daphne Andre had a solid game for Houston with nine points and five rebounds.

The Golden Eagles were led by Carter who scored 23 points, 15 of which came from behind the three point arc. Lotte Hulshof added 12 points for Southern Miss, knocking down all three of her three point attempts.

Houston will be in action again Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. when they take on Tulane at Hofheinz Pavilion. The Game time for Sunday was originally set for 2 p.m., but was rescheduled for 1 p.m. because the game will be broadcast on ESPN.
