BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Rice Owls volleyball team punched their ticket to the C-USA Tournament with a resounding 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-23) win over the UAB Blazers Friday evening at Bartow Arena.

The Owls rallied to win the first set after they trailed from a 10-10 tie all the way until they took a 23-22 advantage. Rice had a match-best .326 hitting percentage the set that saw eight ties and seven lead changes.

Rice led from start to finish in set two while posting a match-best sideout percentage of 59 percent. In set three the Owls won another tightly contested set in which they won the final two points on a kill from Chelsey Harris and a Mariah Riddlesprigger block.
