Big Night for Rice Basketball 

The Lady Owls hope to show that their early-season win over #6 Louisiana Tech is not a fluke, as they travel to Ruston, La. to take on the 22-2 Lady Techsters. The Owls have won 12 straight and now at 18-7 have an outside shot at an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. The Owls will likely get a third shot at LaTech in the WAC tournament that begins next week. A second (or even third!) win over LaTech could put the Owls back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time

At the same time, in the friendly confines of Autry Court, the 20-8 Men play in their home finale, also against Louisiana Tech (13-13). This will be the final home appearance for seniors Christian Kollik, Yamar Diene, and Rashid Smith.

Good luck to the Owls tonight!

Yesterday, the Owls baseball team rebounded from their heartbreaking loss to UT on Tuesday and defeated Sam Houston State 4-3 at Reckling Park. The Owls used all four of their big pitchers on Tuesday (Wade Townsend got a pinch hit appearance), so Lance Pendleton got to make his first appearance on the mound this season, and he got the win over the 4-7-1 Bearkats. Garrett Pennington got his first save with 3.1 innings of two-hit relief.

The Owls play a weekend series at home against Texas State, before getting a rematch against Texas at home on March 9.
