HO CET - UGWZ?

According to LCG, this star has had only one outburst in Jan-Feb 2006. The outburst lasted 16 days. The star has been observed fairly extensively since then and no outbursts have been detected. Of course there are seasonal gaps in the observations when the star is behind the Sun.

Kato et al (2009) in "Survey of Period Variations of Superhumps in SU UMa-Type Dwarf Novae" (p193, 194) identified this star (also referred to as  ASAS J023322− 1047.0) as having superhumps. 

What is the possibility of this star being a UGWZ. Do UGWZs exhibit superhumps?
