We do we only have eight? Lots of injuries or transfers, etc.?

Not sure. Not much news about the team out there. Kris Gardner is here so hopefully he gets something.

Coogs down 20-14 after one.

I think it may be illness hitting the team.

Never mind, saw Jazz up in the stands across from the bench. Guessing she’s suspended. Got told she got into it with Coach during the UCONN game.

Coogs up 34-33 at half. Came back after being down 25-14.

Good “stick to it” by the Ladies. Curious to hear the story on Jazz.

The Coogs’ bench outscored the Owls’ bench 27-16. Houston also outscored Temple 17-8 in second-chance points and 24-11 in fast break points.

“We talked about the accountability of sticking together and holding your teammates accountable,” Hughey commented. “It’s a sisterhood where you have to pick your teammates up when mistakes happen. I think they did that; and, they were able to fight and get a win over a tough Temple team.”
