Lady Cougar Basketball Tripped by Southern Miss, 78-67






  • Box Score

    HATTIESBURG, Miss. (Feb. 12) - The University of Houston women's basketball team appeared to have a cure for its recent trend. In their last five games Houston had been falling behind early then having to make up ground the final three-fourths of the way.

    Saturday morning (Feb. 12) at Conference USA rival Southern Miss it appeared to be different. The Lady Cougars kept up the pace in Hattiesburgh, Miss, and were within five points with just over five-and-a-half minutes to play in the first half. Then the cold spell reared its ugly head. UH made seven turnovers and was outscored 17-8 in the final five-and-a-half minutes to find itself down 41-27 at the intermission.

    As has also been the trend all season, the Lady Cougars fought back and outscored the opposition in the second half 40-37 cut the final margin to 11, 78-67. Houston was paced by junior guard Jessica Shanklin's career-highs in points (19), rebounds (7), assists (7) and steals (4). Junior center ShaRonda Lasseter added 15 points and six caroms in 21 minutes of action while Norma Noel followed up her 11-point night t Tulane with 12 at USM.

    Houston didn't get much help from the free throw line. Southern Miss converted on 14 of 22 shots from the charity stripe while UH attempted just seven free throws all day.

    With the loss, the team's sixth-straight, Houston fell to 6-17 overall and 3-10 in C-USA action. Southern Miss improved to 13-11 on the year and 7-6 in league play. The Lady Cougars will next face C-USA rival Cincinnati on Friday, February 18, at home in Hofheinz Pavilion. Tipoff will be at 7:00 p.m.
