Rice shot a 309 team score on Sunday.
"We played pretty well on the front, but on the back side we caught the worst of the wind and it cost us a lot of shots down the stretch," said Rice coach Justin Emil. "I saw good shots from everyone out there today."
With a pair of players carding two of the top performances of the day, Memphis took an early two-stroke lead over second-place SMU on day one of the championship.
Memphis seniors Jack Belote and reigning medalist Jonathan Fly finished the day four-under and three-under, respectively.
SMU senior Max Buckley is tied atop the leaderboard with Belote after a 68 to pace the Mustangs.
Memphis and SMU which scored a 282 and 284 on Sunday, respectively, will tee off Monday's second round at 8:50 a.m. with third-place Marshall. The Thundering Herd posted a two-under 286 on Sunday.
Rice will be paired with Tulsa for Monday's round and will tee off beginning at 8 a.m.
