Two of Rice's incoming freshman basketball players for next season have played in their respective state championship title games.
Breion Allen's Hoover H.S. squad won the Alabama girls 6A championship when it defeated Bob Jones H.S., 44-26. It was the third team title for Hoover. It was the fourth championship game meeting between the two schools in as many years and the second time the top-ranked Bucs (31-3) shut down No. 2 Bob Jones (36-3), holding the Patriots to 8 of 29 shooting for the game while picking up 18 points off turnovers. Allen, a 5'9" athletic guard, played in 26 minutes and scored five points with a steal, while playing exceptional defense in the victory.
Hoover was ranked No. 20 by USA Today Top 25.
Alyssa Lang's Rockwall team fell to Mansfield Summit H.S. in the Texas state 4A championship game in Austin, by a 45-42 count. Lang, a 6'1" forward, posted a double-double by pouring in a game-high 25 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in 31 minutes of action. She made 9-16 from the field and was credited with three blocked shots. Rockwall's season ended with a sterling 34-8 record.
Said Owl head coach Greg Williams on his prized recruits, "We are proud of both Breion and Alyssa in helping their high school teams to the championship game in their respective states of Alabama and Texas. We believe that winning attitude and leadership will carry over to their careers at Rice. Additionally, our other two recruits had strong senior years with Elena Gumbs leading her team (Steele H.S.) to the third round and Megan Palmer (Cinco Ranch H.S.) the send round in Texas 5A competition."
