Weekend Storylines

  • Winners of three straight, the Rice Owls (3-1) volleyball team will be traveling a little over 1,700 miles this weekend to play in the Yale Invitational, Sept. 4-5. Rice opens the tournament facing UC-Santa Barbara (2-1) on Friday at 4 p.m. (CT) , the first ever meeting against the Gauchos. Then on Saturday the Owls will play their second doubleheader of the season, beginning with Rhode Island (2-1) at 10 a.m. (CT), followed by the host Yale Bulldogs (0-0) in the nightcap (6 p.m.). 
  • Yale is one of five teams the Owls play this season that participated in the 2014 NCAA Tournament and one of seven teams that posted a Top-100 RPI, coming in at No. 63. 
  • Senior libero Kimberly Vaio enters this weekend just 73 digs shy of 1,000 career digs. Vaio is vying to become the 15th Owl in school history to reach the 1,000 career digs milestone. The San Antonio, Texas native is averaging a team-best 3.69 digs per set this season. 
  • The Owls are coming off a 3-1 victory over Lamar in the home opener on Tuesday. McDaniel notched her third consecutive 50-plus assist performance with a season-high 51 in the victory. She also recorded 12 digs for her second double-double of the year. Leah Mikesky also posted a double-double with a game-high 17 kills and 10 digs.
