Nevada pins Second Conference Loss on Owls 

Another road game in front of a hostile crowd, another pathetically slow start for the Owls. And just like last Saturday in Tulsa, the slow start could not be overcome as the Owls fell to 14-5, 5-2 in conference play. And worse for Rice, this time they could not event make things interesting as they fell 101-76 to Nevada (11-6, 5-3).

The Owls started the game shooting 2-11 and fell behind 25-7 in the games first eight minutes, and never recovered, getting no closer than 15 at 86-71. Nevada is now 9-0 at home, and just one half game behind the Owls for second place in the tough WAC.

Rice' next game is on Wednesday at the cozy confines of Autry Court as they host first place Hawaii who survived Boise St last night 64-58 to go to 6-1 in WAC play.
