NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Connor Frizzelle hit five 3-pointers and scored a career-high 25 points and Arsalan Kazemi had 11 points and a career-high 19 rebounds as Rice held off Tulane 71-61 on Wednesday night.
Tied at halftime, the Owls (11-11, 3-5 Conference USA) shot 61.9 percent from the field (13 of 21) and 91.7 percent from the free-throw line (11 of 12) in the second half to beat the Green Wave for the first time in nine tries.

The Green Wave led 31-25 with 1:06 to go before halftime, but the Owls closed out the period on a 6-0 run and opened the second half with a 7-0 spurt.
Tied for the seventh time at 53 with 7:32 left, Rice went on a 9-2 run.
Kendall Timmons scored 21 to lead Tulane, which was 5 of 23 from 3-point range.
