    Two exhibition games set before start of regular season on November 17

    HOUSTON, Texas - The University of Houston women's basketball team kicks off their 26th season of collegiate competition on Monday, November 6, with an exhibition game against the Houston Jaguars at 7:00pm at Hofheinz Pavilion.

    They have a second exhibition game at 7:00pm on Tuesday, November 14, against the Houston Flight at Hofheinz before the start of the 2000-01 regular season. The Lady Cougars open the regular season at home against McNeese State on November 17 with tip-off at 7:00pm. The Lady Coogs are 5-3 lifetime against the Lady Cowgirls, including 4-0 on their home court.

    The Lady Cougars begin their third season under the direction of head coach Joe Curl and enter this season with a wealth of experience. They have six returning seniors, led by forward/center ShaRonda Lasseter (Savannah, Ga.) and guard/forward Cathy Lida (Chambery, France), and two of the four additions-freshman Chandi Jones (Bay City, Texas) and sophomore transfer Courtney Pastner (Kingwood, Texas/Texas Tech)-were two of the most celebrated women's high school basketball players in the state during their respective careers.

    "I think about the experience of our team this year, and the excitement of the old and the excitement of the new, we're excited about this year," said Curl. "We think we are going to be very competitive. We had a tough schedule last year and the year before, and we have a tough one again this year.

    "You have to learn how to win and you have to learn how to lose to a certain extent. We were competitive in doing so, and it excites me because these girls never quit. They continue to bring their best effort, and that will pay off this year."

    In addition, the Lady Cougars feature new faces on the coaching staff with Todd Buchanan (Murray State) and DeJuena Carter Chizer, who was one of the top players for the Lady Cougars from 1983-86. Curl also added Lesli Vollrath, who played for him at Blinn College, to his staff as Coordinator of Basketball Operations.

    The Lady Cougars went 7-21 last season, including 3-13 against Conference USA competition. Their No. 10 seed at the 2000 C-USA Tournament was their highest at a post-season conference championship since the UH women were ranked No. 6 in the SWC Tournament in 1996.
