Houston - No. 8 Texas A&M opened the contest by outscoring Rice 15-0 en route to an 80-40 victory over the Owls inside Tudor Fieldhouse. The Aggies (2-0) held Rice (2-3) scoreless for the first seven minutes of the contest until 12:59 when D'Frantz Smart canned a three-pointer.
The Owls also did not score for the first 4:08 of the second-half as Texas A&M scored the first 14 points, increasing its 38-21 half-time lead to 52-21 and putting the game out of reach. Jessica Kuster gave Rice its first bucket of the second-half at 15:52.
"They only gave up 41 points to a very good Arkansas-Little Rock team in their first game," commented Rice head coach Greg Williams. "They are long. They are athletic. They make you work for everything and they take you out of your comfort zone on offense."
Rice committed 24 turnovers that led to 23 points for Texas A&M. The Aggies also had 23 second-chance points with 25 offensive rebounds and they 14 steals on the night.
Aggie center Danielle Adams made 10-18 field goals for a game and season-high 26 points to go with a game-high 10 rebounds.

Rice has the week off until it competes at the Georgia State Thanksgiving Tournament on Nov. 27-28. The Owls face Mercer at 3 p.m. on Saturday and either Georgia State or Alabama A&M on Sunday.
