Friday Matches Moved to Fox Gym
In conjunction with Vice President Joe Biden's speech occurring in Tudor Fieldhouse this Friday, Sept. 16 at 3 p.m., the first two matches of the Rice Adidas Invitational II will now be played in Fox Gymnasium.

Houston versus Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (11 a.m.) and Rice versus Yale (1:30 p.m.) will still play at their originally scheduled time. Entry into both matches at Fox Gymnasium will be free and fans will need to enter through the Youngkin Center doors.

Season ticket members with season parking passes will be allowed to park in the Moody Lot on Friday. Fans that don't have parking passes will be able to park in West Lot 1 starting at 10 a.m. on Friday.

Due to the location change, Rice's match versus Yale will not be available on CUSAtv online streaming. All four matches scheduled for Saturday will occur on Autry Court in Tudor Fieldhouse as originally scheduled beginning at 10 a.m.

For further information or any questions call the Rice ticket office at (713) 348-OWLS.

NEWS AND NOTES
*The Rice Owls volleyball team hosts their second straight weekend tournament beginning on Friday with two matches in the Rice Adidas Invitational II. Rice is in the midst of a nine-match homestand in which they've currently gone 1-3 on. The Owls first play Yale on Friday (1:30 p.m.), whom they defeated last year in five sets on Sept. 5. The match will be played in Fox Gymnasium where the Owls will be playing for the first time since 2012 when they hosted the Tiger Classic.

*On Saturday the Owls will play their fourth doubleheader of the season with matches against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (12 p.m.) and Houston (7:30 p.m.). Rice has gone 2-4 overall in doubleheaders this season. The Islanders defeated Rice 3-1 last season on Sept. 15 in Corpus Christi while the Owls will be playing the Cougars for the first time since the 2012 campaign.

*Rice junior setter Madison McDaniel currently ranks 8th in the nation in total assists (449), which is good enough for second in Conference USA. McDaniel dished out a season-high 59 assists in the Owls 3-2 loss to Texas Tech on Wednesday.
