Final Stats

HOUSTON, Texas - The University of Houston women's basketball team used a 12-0 start to the second half Friday night to open up a 22 point lead and cruised to a 59-39 win over the New Mexico State Aggies in the opening game of the Houston Classic Tournament at Hofheinz Pavilion.

Houston (4-0) held a 30-20 lead at halftime and came out on fire in the opening minutes of the second half, putting the game out of reach for the Aggies. Sancho Lyttle, who finished with a game high 15 points scored six quick points for the Lady Cougars and Chandi Jones added two more buckets to stretch the lead to 20 with 17:07 to play in the game. Joann Overstreet then knocked down a jumper to put Houston up 42-20 before New Mexico State's Tristan Baker got the Aggies on the board in the second period with 16:11 to play.

The Lady Cougars never looked back after breaking the game open. The Houston defense caused 27 turnovers and allowed the Aggies (2-1) to shoot just 27.5 percent from the field for the game.

Offensively the Lady Cougars were led by Lyttle's 15 points and nine rebounds while Overstreet and Jones added 11 and 10 points respectively.

Game two of the Cougar classic will be Saturday at 12 p.m. when New Mexico State takes on the Alcorn State Lady Braves. Houston will be in action again Sunday at 2 p.m. when they take on Alcorn State.
