UH Notebook: Women’s basketball team continues road trip

The UH women’s basketball team got exactly what it wanted out of Friday’s season-opening 86-64 win over Gardner-Webb.

The Cougars went into a hostile environment and used a 21-8 second-half run to put away the Bulldogs and start the season 1-0.

UH was led by junior guard Brittney Scott’s 27 points and junior forward Courtney Taylor’s 26th career double-double. Taylor finished with 12 points and 16 rebounds and is now nine double-doubles short of Sancho Lyttle’s school record of 35.

Scott’s presence was especially felt during the Cougars’ second-half run, as she scored 19 points after the break.

The Cougars return to the court when they travel to Arlington to take on UT-Arlington at 7 p.m. today before facing Oregon State at 7 p.m. Thursday at Hofheinz Pavilion in the team’s home opener.

The Mavericks enter today’s contest with a 1-0 record after defeating Rice, 81-64, on Friday at home.
