Rice sophomore Jessica Howard scored the team's game-winning goal in the Owls' most recent outing at TCU, but now she has to go 1-v-1 with the rugged Just For Kicks questions!
Howard has been getting offensive as of late. In her last two matches the Dallas native has only played a total of 92 minutes, but she piled up an eye-opening 12 shots. She's also maintained a .385 shots-on-goal percentage.
