TULSA, Okla.- Rice fell 49-45 to Tulsa on Sunday at the Donald W. Reynolds Center. Jessica Goswitz led the Owls with 12 points.
The Owls came out of the gates with a 7-0 run, holding the Golden Hurricane scoreless until the 15:50 mark of the first half. Tulsa tied the game briefly at 8, before Rice took the lead again with a Jessica Goswitz 3-pointer, and did not trail again until the second half. Rice took a 23-18 lead into the locker room at halftime.
After Goswitz hit a 3-pointer on the first possession of the second half, Tulsa went on a 12-2 run to take a 30-28 lead at the 15:12 mark of the second half.
