    HOUSTON, Texas - This coming weekend at Hofheinz Pavilion promises to be an exciting one as the Lady Cougars host C-USA American division rivals Marquette and DePaul in their final two home games of the season.

    The Lady Cougars look to snap their 0-4 mark against the Golden Eagles of Marquette on Friday (Feb. 16) night. Marquette is currently resting in fifth place in the division with a 9-14 overall record, 5-7 in Conference play.

    Next up is DePaul on Sunday (Feb. 18) afternoon as Houston looks for its first win in five conference meetings and their first win overall since defeating the Blue Demons by a final of 90-67 on January 7, 1986. DePaul holds a 6-2 lifetime edge over the Lady Cougars and are currently in fourth place of the American Division with a 12-11 overall record, 5-7 in C-USA play.

    The University will honor the six Lady Cougar seniors who will be playing in the final game of their collegiate careers at Hofheinz in a brief pre-game ceremony prior to Sunday afternoon's game. The six seniors are center ShaRonda Lasseter, point guard Jessica Shanklin, forwards Monet Sykes and Cathy Lida and reserves Norma Noel and Danielle Fenderson. Lasseter and Fenderson have spent their entire collegiate careers at Houston while Lida, Sykes, Noel and Shanklin have transferred from junior colleges.

    The Lady Cougars currently rest in second place of C-USA's National Division a game-and-a-half behind Tulane with a 15-9 overall record, 8-4 league record. They have reached double figures in overall wins for the first time since joining the league, and their 15 wins overall on the year are the most victories since posting a 22-8 record during the 1991-92 campaign, the last year they finished a season above the .500 mark. The eight wins against C-USA opponents so far this season marks Houston's highest C-USA-win total ever since joining the league in 1996-97, surpassing the previous high of three wins in both 1997-98 and 1999-00.

    As of February 12, Houston was ranked 70th among women's hoops programs by the Collegiate Basketball News RPI ratings, the third-best rating among C-USA schools behind Tulane (60) and Louisville (67).

    Sunday afternoon's contest against the Blue Demons will be broadcast live by Texas Sports Radio Network over the internet at www.tsrn.com. For more information about the Lady Cougars check out www.Uhcougars.com.
