Head coach Justin Emil commented, “Going into the final round with a chance to win was a big plus for this team. These young men have been working extremely hard for what turned out to be a successful home event. It was a great to start the spring season here in Houston. I want to also thank all our volunteers for helping make the Rice Intercollegiate a first class tournament.”
