Yes, there has a serious BUZZ about Rice soccer the last few weeks. The Just For Kicks home office has come to learn that part of the buzz is that the team is off to its best start since 2006. The other BUZZ in question has been the solid play of freshman defender Lauren Busansky.
A native of Calabasas, Calif., Busansky has played well 112 minutes this season. She now steps-up to face the rugged Just For Kicks questions.
