HOUSTON, Texas – Saturday’s men’s basketball game will tip off at 5 p.m. to accommodate the Conference USA Football Championship on campus the same day. The Owls face South Alabama in a non-conference contest.
The game was originally slated for a 2 p.m. start before the Owls’ football team claimed the C-USA West Division championship and earned the right to host Marshall in the league title game on ESPN2 at 11 a.m. at Rice Stadium.
Tickets for both of Saturday’s games are on sale now on RiceOwls.com, by calling 713-522-OWLS (6957) or visiting the Rice Athletic Ticket Office. The ticket office will be open from 8:30 a.m.to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The basketball game will be streamed live on Rice All-Access and live audio will be available on RiceOwls.com. The game will not be carried on Yahoo Sports Radio 1560-AM due to a prior scheduling commitment.
The Owls (3-4) close out a three-game road trip on Wednesday at Houston Baptist. That game tips off at 7:30 p.m. at HBU’s Sharp Gym.
