Feels like it has been forever since our last game.  Less than 12 hours left, so it doesn't seem likely to be called off now.

NT 79 ------- Rice 74     Final

Always big to get a conference road win. I feel like playing at Tudor Fieldhouse is especially tricky because it seems they are pretty good at sucking us into playing more at their pace there, but we

Rice always hits a million threes against us (especially in Houston), and they shot nearly 50% from downtown today, but we still got the win.  I think that's a good sign.

7pm on ESPN+.

Quick Look @ Rice:

They are 10-6 overall and 4-4 in conference.

Enter game on a three game losing streak.

Of their 10 wins, half have come against Incarnate Word by 15, Our Lady of The Lake (39), Letourneau (20), Houston Baptist (22) and Houston Bapist again (11).

Have a 13 point loss to Sam Houston St.

In CUSA play they swept UTSA, split with UTEP and ODU and were swept by UAB.

PG Quincy Olivari is their leading scorer at 16.1 ppg while shooting 46% from three.

G Travis Evee is their second leading scorer at 15.5 ppg have scored in double figures in every game but one.  Shoots 41% from three.

Olivari and Evee have combined to attempt 228 three point shots on the year, making 100, while the remainder of the team has 242 attempts combined.

G Chris Mullins (11.5) and F/C Max Fielder (11.1) are their two other scorers averaging double digits.

I predict a sweep and both games to have a winning margin by ten or more.

As long as the game is eventually played, I think we can retain this thread and simply adjust the date in the title accordingly.

Done

Just now, greenminer said:

Looks like Rice is avg-ing 78.3 ppg, 76 in CUSA.

Per the above tweet, it will be interesting to see if we can hold them at-or-around 60 this weekend.

Clawing back. We have really good defensive intensity but they have some really big boys. They are doing much better with their second chance opportunities. This could turn into a shootout.
