HATTIESBURG, Miss.- Rice's women's basketball team ran out of steam against Southern Miss, falling 76-57 to the Golden Eagles at Reed Green Coliseum. Breion Allen had her first career double-digit scoring game in the losing effort.
"It was a strange basketball game, I don't know if in all my years of coaching that I've had two halves that were that disproportionate," said Rice head coach Greg Williams. "They changed their pressure, and made some good adjustments with their press, and we did not handle it well."
Rice (9-10, 1-5 C-USA) came out of the gates quickly, scoring on four of its first six possessions to take a 9-7 lead. After Southern Miss took a brief 12-11 lead, Rice went on an 8-0 run to take the lead to 19-12 by the 10:57 mark of the first half. Rice closed the first frame with an 11-0 run leading into halftime, giving the Owls a 41-23 lead at intermission, their largest lead of the game.
Southern Miss (11-8, 3-3 C-USA) used a 19-2 run in the second half to take a 48-46 lead, and did not look back as Southern Miss expanded its lead to 76-57.
Jessica Kuster had 15 points with five rebounds, four assists and four blocks.
Megan Palmer scored 14 points with nine rebounds.
Breion Allen set a career-high in scoring for the second consecutive game, with 10 points, her first career double-digit scoring game.
The Owls return to the court on Jan. 31 at Memphis, with tip set for 7 p.m. The Owls return home on Feb. 3 to host UAB at 2 p.m. Tickets for the UAB game are available here.
