NEW ORLEANS, La.- Despite Jessica Kuster's third consecutive double-double, Rice fell 61-45 to Tulane on Thursday night at Devlin Fieldhouse. Kuster had 12 points in the loss.
"I am disappointed with the loss, we couldn't overcome an 18-2 deficit in points off turnovers in the second half, which was the difference in the game," said Rice head coach Greg Williams.
"I am pleased with the play of Jessica Kuster, who had a double double, Jessica Goswitz, who had six assists and nine points, and Breion Allen, who has been one of our most consistent scorers off the bench," added Williams.
Rice (10-13, 2-8 C-USA) and Tulane played an even first half, with neither team gaining much of an edge as the Green Wave led 27-25 at the half.
Tulane (18-5, 7-3 C-USA) gained an advantage in the early part of the second half, going on a 10-2 run to take a 42-33 lead by 12:53 of the frame, and maintained that cushion through most of the second half, eventually winning by a score of 61-45.
Jessica Kuster had her third straight and 40th career double double with 12 points, and 11 rebounds, plus a career-high six assists.
Christal Porter reached double figures in rebounds for the second straight game and the fifth time this season with 14 boards, one away from her career high. She added in six points.
Breion Allen posted her second career double-digit scoring game, tying her career-high with 10 points.
Jessica Goswitz scored nine points off of three 3-pointers with six assists, one short of matching her career-high.
The Owls take to the road on Sunday, February 17 to play Tulsa at 2 p.m. The Owls return home on Feb. 21 to host UCF at 7 p.m. Tickets are available for the UCF game here.
