HOUSTON- Rice won its second consecutive game and improved to 3-1 at Tudor Fieldhouse this season with a 68-42 defeat of Chicago State. Jessica Kuster and Megan Palmer both posted double-doubles for the second straight game.
After Chicago State (1-8) tied the game at four, Rice (4-4) went on a 16-2 run to take a 20-6 lead midway through the first half, and did not look back. The Owls took a 32-11 lead into the break, holding the Cougars to no points over the last 8:12 of the second half.
