HOUSTON - The Conference USA Champion Rice soccer team, 14-3-3 on the season and an automatic selection to national postseason play after winning the league tournament last week, meets the Texas Longhorns in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The match is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 14, at 5 pm in Austin.

Rice is making its third-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Owls last played in the NCAA's in 2005 after winning an automatic bid with their first C-USA title. That year Rice played its opening game against the Cal Bears in the four-team Austin regional. The Blue & Gray also made the 2004 NCAA field as an at-large team after posting a school record 14 wins.

The Owls matched that school-record win total this season and were only defeated three times - all by a single goal in overtime. Rice played two games against teams in the current NCAA Tournament and both ended as double-overtime ties against both Arkansas (8-6-6) and A-10 champion Dayton (12-8-2).

The school record 14 wins was just one of many milestones and awards this year, including Nicky Adams as the C-USA Coach of the Year, junior forward Lauren Hughes as the Offensive Player of the Year, and senior Quinny Truong as the league's Midfielder of the Year. The Owls finished just a game back of the C-USA regular season title before storming through the tournament. Rice defeated Western Kentucky 1-0 in the first round, Louisiana Tech 1-0 in the semifinals and North Texas 2-0 in the championship final on Sunday to claim the league's automatic bid. Rice enters national postseason play with a seven-game win streak, five of which were by shutout.
