GREENVILLE, N.C.- The Owls dropped their C-USA opener to East Carolina 60-41 Thursday night in Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum. Maya Adetula led the Owls with a career-high 10 points.
The Pirates (11-3, 1-0 C-USA) started the game on a 10-0 run, and led Rice (8-6, 0-1 C-USA) 36-21 at halftime. East Carolina shot 50.0% from beyond the arc in the first half.
East Carolina outscored the Owls 24-20 in the second half. Rice held the Pirates to just 1-of-10 3-point shooting in the second half, but it was not enough to overcome the 15-point halftime spread.

Maya Adetula posted a career-high 10 points in just 13 minutes of play, her first career double-digit scoring game. She previously had a career-high of seven points, set on Jan. 22, 2012 at Southern Miss.
