• Two of Houston’s opponents at the Aggie Classic are familiar to the Cougars from a year ago. In 2017, Houston hosted Boston College on opening weekend with the Houston Hilton Plaza Invitational, splitting the teams’ two meetings. The Cougars also visited Texas A&M in a midweek matchup, winning 1-0 over the then No. 5/5 Aggies.

Tough loss against the Aggies as the Coogs went up 4-1 early, but couldn’t hang on. Eventually lost to a walk-off single. Still, a win against Tech and keeping it close against a Top 10 A&M team that was rested is a good start to the season. Get another chance at the Aggies on Sunday.

Pitching strong early at the Aggie Classic opener
http://thedailycougar.com/2018/02/12/aggie-classic-strong-softball-pitching-season-opener/

In the other two games, Melancon and junior Presley Bell each went for at least five innings. They combined to only give up five earned runs against Texas A&M and Boston College each. Melancon and Bell also only allowed two walks over an 11-inning period. The four starters for Houston did not give up a single home run over the course of the Aggie Classic and in two of the four games – against Texas Tech and Boston College — they did not allow an extra-base hit.
