HOUSTON, Texas - Rice University men’s basketball closes out the regular season with a home game against Tulsa. Saturday’s contest tips off at 7 p.m.
The Owls will honor senior Tamir Jackson prior to the senior’s final game in Tudor Fieldhouse.
Jackson came within one point of matching his season high when he scored 25 points at Houston on Wednesday. It was the fifth-straight game in which he scored at least 19 points.
Rice (5-24, 1-14) worked back from a double-digit deficit in the second half, but could not get over the hump in an 84-62 setback.
Austin Ramljak added 14 points, including four three-pointers, in the game. He took over eighth place on Rice’s single season three-pointer list with 64. Julian DeBose also scored in double figures with 11 points on the night to accompany four assists.
