With the season less than a month away, Rice University men's and women's basketball single-game tickets are on sale now on RiceOwls.com and at the Rice Ticket Office at Tudor Fieldhouse. The box office is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be reached by phone at 713-522-OWLS (6957).
Each of the Owls teams hosts 14 games at Tudor Fieldhouse in 2013-14, and both squads open their campaigns at home the weekend of Nov. 8-9. Head coach Greg Williams' women's hoops team opens the season on Nov. 8 against Prairie View A&M at 7 p.m. and Ben Braun's men's team faces off against St. Thomas the following afternoon at 2 p.m.
Visits from Ivy League powers Harvard (Jan. 4) and Princeton (Nov. 23) highlight the men's basketball non-conference schedule and five of Rice's eight Conference USA home games are against new teams to the league this season.
In addition to four C-USA women's basketball newcomers visiting Tudor Fieldhouse, the Owls square off against six in-state foes in the non-conference slate, including a Dec. 20 meeting with Houston at 1 p.m.
Season tickets for both the men's and women's basketball seasons are also on sale now.
