    HOUSTON, Texas (Nov. 29) - The University of Houston hosts Indiana University and Louisiana Tech, currently ranked No. 9 by ESPN/USA Today and No. 11 by the Associated Press, in the annual Hilton Houston Hobby Airport Classic Tournament Dec. 1-3 at Hofheinz Pavilion on the UH campus.

    Last year Houston lost both games in the tournament, falling to North Texas in the first round, 71-65, and then to Georgia in the final round, 98-68. Last year's tournament was also the last time Houston has participated in a tournament and dropped both games.

    Since the start of the Hilton Hobby Classic during the 1992-93 season, the Lady Cougars have posted a 6-8 record in the tournament. The only season they did not host the event was during the 1997-98 season.

    The Lady Techsters of Louisiana Tech lead the overall series against the Lady Cougars, 4-1, including an even 1-1 at Hofheinz Pavilion. Houston fell to Louisiana Tech by a final of 94-49 in the two schools' last meeting on December 28, 1999. Indiana also leads the overall series against the Lady Cougars, 2-0.

    After going 1-1 at the Pepperdine Classic in Malibu, California, this past weekend Houston is now 4-7 over their last 11 tournament games, including a 1-4 record in five tournament games last season.

    The schedule of games this weekend is as follows:

    Houston vs Indiana University 	Friday, December 1	7:00pm
    Indiana vs Louisiana Tech	Saturday, December 2	7:00pm
    Houston vs Louisiana Tech	Sunday, December 3	2:00pm
