Rice began its 98th basketball season with an 83-49 win over the University of New Orleans. The Owls improved to 56-42 in season openers, winning its season debut for the third straight year.
Kazemi registered his 28th career double-double. He ranks third on the Rice all-time list behind Michael Harris (55) and Brent Scott (1990-93).
The Owls' freshman class combined for 39 of the team's 83 points.
Rice held New Orleans to just 24.1 percent shooting (14-of-58) which is an all-time low for the Privateers. The old record stood for less than 24 hours as New Mexico held UNO to 25.5 percent shooting a night earlier.
Led by Arsalan Kazemi's three blocks, Rice had nine blocks as a team. The nine rejections equaled the second most in Rice history. The school record of 11 was set against Murray State (F 19, 2005). Rice also had nine blocks against Navy (D22, 2004).
Generra Varmall set a New Orleans' school record for steals with nine, including eight in the first half. Varmall broke the record of eight which had stood since Ben Adams established the mark against Loyola (Dec. 1, 2000).
The nine steals was also the most by a Rice opposing player. Tulsa's Eric Coley had eight steals against Rice on Feb. 14, 2000.
