The Rice women's tennis team saw their weekend trip to Alabama come to a close when their Conference USA dual match opener at UAB was rained out on Sunday.
The same storm system that soaked the Houston area at the start of the weekend left the courts at George Ward Park unplayable even after the matches were delayed two hours from the original 11 a.m. scheduled first serve.
The Owls will be back in action on Friday when they travel to College Station to take on the 31st ranked Texas A&M Aggies at 1:30. That match time was moved up to an afternoon start to avoid a conflict with the Aggies men's tennis team, which plays on Friday night.
The Owls will return to action at Jake Hess Tennis Stadium for the first time since defeating McNeese State on February 4 when they host the Oklahoma Sooners on Sunday, February 26. First serve is set for 11 a.m.
