Owls Searching For Florida Sweep
The Rice Owls will look to make it four consecutive wins and a sweep of their Florida trip when they travel to Florida Atlantic on Saturday for a 4 p.m. (CT) tip. Rice is coming off a 59-41 victory in the C-USA opener, marking the first time the Owls have won a road C-USA opener in the Greg Williams era (1-5) and the first overall C-USA opening victory since the 2005-06 campaign.
Kuster Approaching Rice Rebounding Record
With 15 more rebounds against FIU, senior forward Jessica Kuster crept ever closer to the Rice career rebounding record held by Lauren Neaves (1,190). Kuster enters play Saturday with 1,170 rebounds and is averaging just under 14 boards per game. Kuster also moved into third place in school history in career field goals made, tying Neaves’ previous mark of 611. Kuster needs just nine more made field goals to tie Marla Brumfield for No. 2 (620).
