Women's Basketball sneak by the 49ers

Feb. 20, 2005

Box Score

On senior night, the University of Houston women's basketball team hit six out of their last eight free throws to edge out Charlotte, 69-64, to take over sole possession of fourth place in Conference USA Sunday at Hofheinz Pavilion.

With the score tied at 58, freshman Kadi Creel hit a three with 3:19 to give Houston what would be the lead for good. After Pam Brown knocked down one of her two free throws to get the 49ers within two, Kiki Harris nailed a jumper off a pass from Joann Overstreet to extend the lead to four with 2:30 left in the game.

From that point on, it came down to free throws as Houston hit six out of eight from the line in the final 43 seconds. Crystal Simpson hit one out of two free throws; Creel hit two free throws; Overstreet hit two from the charity stripe; and Harris capped off the scoring by hitting one out of two with 13 seconds left to give Houston the crucial victory, 69-64.

The game was back-and-forth throughout with Charlotte gaining as large as a three-point lead various times in the game, and Houston having a seven-point lead once following a Sancho Lyttle free throw with 2:54 left in the first half. Houston led at the half, 32-28. The lead changed hands a total of 12 times in the game, and the score was tied 11 times.

The game was sloppy with 43 turnovers- 23 by Houston and 20 committed by Charlotte- and 41 total personal fouls - 19 on Houston and 22 on Charlotte.

Lyttle led Houston with her 20th double-double of the year, 20 points and 14 rebounds, and Harris chipped in a double-double of her own, 14 points and 10 rebounds. Overstreet added nine points and four assists.

 

 

The Lady Cougars' bench outscored Charlotte's bench, 21-15, thanks in large part to Creel, who scored eight points, and Jasmine Moore and Daphne Andre, who each added six.

Following the game, a ceremony was held honoring seniors Lyttle, Harris, Overstreet, Simpson, Andre and Cynecia Robinson. The six players were apart of last season's team who went to the second round of the NCAA tournament and were C-USA regular season and conference champions.

Houston improved to 19-7 overall and 9-4 in C-USA play with the win. The Lady Cougars take a week off before they head to Fort Worth to play TCU next Sunday. Houston will be looking to avenge a 63-55 loss they suffered to TCU on Jan. 30 at home.
