The R has received word that current Rice basketball player Megan Elliott, a junior forward from Atlanta and Pace Academy, and former Owl great Doug McKendrick, squared off for a game of H-O-R-S-E inside Atlanta's Northside Youth Organization (NYO) gym this past Sunday (Aug. 15).
Elliott was graciousness enough and showed respect to the ol' timer by allowing him to shoot first. McKendrick then proceeded to narrowly defeat Elliott.
Doug, along with Claudia McKendrick and Rick Crowe, is a proprietor of one of Atlanta's finest restaurants, McKendrick's Steak House. McKendrick lettered in men's basketball for Rice in 1965 and 1966 and he still holds Rice's single game scoring record when he dropped 47 points on Georgia Tech (Dec. 6, 1965).
