  • Box Score

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Jan. 13) - The University of Houston women's basketball team failed to hold off a UAB rally and fell to the Lady Blazers in a Conference USA game by the overtime score of 84-80 Thursday night in Birmingham, Alabama.

    After building a commanding 27-point lead midway through the second-half, the Lady Cougars looked as if its season-long three-game win streak would continue to four. But the Lady Blazers went on a 35-9 run over the final 11:40 to tie the game at 73 and force the five-minute overtime period. Houston then went up by three in the extra frame, 78-75, but UAB again stormed back with a 9-2 run over the final three minutes to claim an 84-80 C-USA victory.

    With the loss, which is only the second for the Lady Cougars in the year 2000, UH fell to 5-9 overall and 2-2 in C-USA action. Houston was led by junior center ShaRonda Lasseter's season-high 15 points.

    UAB, which used its superior size to outscore UH in the paint 28-8 as well as covert on 15 "second-chance" points UH's none, improved to 10-5 on the season and 2-2 against the league. The Lady Blazers were led by 6-foot-3 true freshman center Michelle Smith, who poured in 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds.

    Houston will next be in action with a C-USA road game at Memphis on Saturday, January 15. Tipoff with the Lady Tigers will be at 3:00 p.m. in the Elma Roane Fieldhouse on the UM campus.
