Tye Jackson Named Conference USA Player Of The Week

Feb. 4, 2008

DALLAS - Tye Jackson (Houston, Texas/Westfield HS/Purdue) was named the Conference USA Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending Feb. 3, the league office announced Monday.

Jackson averaged almost a triple double over the weekend as Houston (13-9, 7-1 C-USA) ran its winning streak to seven games and matched the best C-USA start in program history. The Cougars have achieved a 7-1 mark in C-USA play for the third time in school history.

Jackson tallied the fourth triple-double in Conference USA and Cougar history with 11 points, a career-best 16 rebounds and 12 assists in an 80-76 overtime win at UAB.

The last UH player to tally a triple-double was Stacy Johnson against Ball State on Dec. 29, 1994. The other two players to net the honor were Arlene Brown (02/27/90) and Michelle Harris (12/04/93).

Against Memphis, she recorded 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

Through eight league games, she has averaged 9.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg and 7.1 apg.

She recently became the third player in school history to surpass 1,000-career points with 300 career assists.

This is Jackson's first weekly honor this season and the third of her career.

Houston returns home for a pair of games against Tulsa and SMU. The Cougars and Golden Hurricane square off Thursday at 7 p.m. CST while the Mustangs and UH face off at 2 p.m. Saturday.

The Cougars will celebrate both Think Pink Day and National Girls and Women in Sports Day Saturday.

The WBCA's "Think Pink" initiative is a global, unified effort for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's (WBCA) nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond.

NGWSD began in 1987 as a day to remember Olympic volleyball player - and former Houston volleyball player - Flo Hyman for her athletic achievements and her work to assure equality for women's sports. Hyman died of Marfan's Syndrome in 1986 while competing in a volleyball tournament in Japan. Since that time, NGWSD has evolved into a day to acknowledge the past and recognize current sports achievements, the positive influence of sports participation, and the continuing struggle for equality and access for women in sports.
