NEWS AND NOTES
*The Rice Owls return home to host the first of two weekend tournaments starting this Friday when they host the Oakland Golden Grizzlies for the first-ever meeting between the two schools. Rice will then play their third double-double of the season on Saturday beginning with a morning match versus Sam Houston State. Rice holds a 21-14 all-time advantage over the Bearkats and have won 11 straight decisions in the series dating back to 1996. The Owls will then close out the tournament with a showdown vs. No. 24 USC, the first-ever meeting with the Trojans.

*Chelsey Harris recorded her 1,000th career kill to help lead the Rice Owls volleyball team to a thrilling 3-2 victory (25-17, 17-25, 25-21, 21-25, 15-13) over Illinois State last Saturday. Harris recorded 7 of her match-leading 18 kills in the 5th set. The senior from Houston became the 15th player in Rice history to join the 1,000-career kills club with her big performance.

*Rice middle blocker Grace Morgan earned the Owls’ second Conference USA weekly honor of the season on Tuesday when the league announced the Crowley, La. native was selected the C-USA Freshman of the Week. Morgan continued her strong freshman campaign with 21 kills, 11 blocks and six digs for the Owls over the weekend. She joins her freshman teammate Lee Ann Cunningham (Defensive Player of the Week, Aug. 29) as Owls to win a C-USA weekly honor.

*The Owls were very successful against Top 25 programs in 2015, going 2-1 overall and knocking off No. 22 WKU and No. 23 Colorado.
