Catch your cougars

Now that you know your class schedule, you can begin to make room for Cougar sports. Many of the teams are well into their season schedule and, starting today, you can watch or listen to them as they compete through the weekend.


The men’s basketball team will take on Southern Methodist at 7 p.m. in Dallas. Although you may not want to make the drive, you can still tune in to KBME-AM, The Sports Animal, to listen to the Cougars as they play their first Conference USA game of the season. UH sits at 11-3 and is looking to bounce back after two consecutive losses. Senior guards Robert McKiver and Dion Dowell will look to get the team rolling against the 6-8 Mustangs, who are also looking for their first C-USA win.


If you’re near your computer, don’t miss Twiggy McIntyre and the women’s basketball team taking on Central Florida at 6 p.m. in Orlando, Fla. The Cougars have won two consecutive games and hope to make it three as they play their first road game since Dec. 16. The Golden Knights are 7-9 and have yet to win a C-USA game this season.


The track and field teams will hold their second indoor meet of the season at Yeoman Field House. At last week’s indoor opener, the UH long jumpers dominated the men’s competition, winning the top five spots in the category. Other winners included sophomore Ashley Bryant (weight throw), junior Seun Adigun (60 meter hurdles) and the women’s 4×400-meter relay team.


Kicking off a full day of events, the track and field teams will host the UH Carl Lewis High School Invitational at 9 a.m. in Yeoman Field House. The meet will feature athletes from the high school level as well as track club and individual athletes.

At 1 p.m. the men’s basketball team will host Texas-El Paso at Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Miners are currently 11-4 with a 2-0 C-USA record. The game will feature a great match up at the guard position as UTEP’s Stefon Jackson, who averages 25.9 points per game, will face McKiver, who averages 20.3 points per game. Bring your CougarOne identification card to the game for free student admission. If you can’t make it, the game will be broadcast on KBME-AM. Either way, don’t miss out.

So, you thought football season was over? Not yet. UH will host the 83rd Annual East-West Shrine Game at 6 p.m. at John O’Quinn Field at Robertson Stadium. An all-star game for college athletes, the game will feature Cougar senior running back Anthony Alridge facing off against Louisiana State quarterback Matt Flynn and many more of the country’s best athletes. Head on out and catch one more football game before next fall. Tickets can be purchased through the official Cougar athletics Web site,


The women’s basketball team returns home to face 10-6 Southern Miss at 2 p.m. . The Golden Eagles are 10-6 and 1-2 in the conference. The Cougars won’t have an easy match up facing forward Pauline Love, who averages a double-double (17.1 points per game and 10.6 rebounds).
