Three Rice University volleyball players have been named to all-conference teams as selected by Conference USA's 12 head coaches announced the league office Wednesday morning.

Junior Nancy Cole (Pasadena, Texas) was named to the All-C-USA First Team, redshirt sophomore Megan Murphy was selected to the All-C-USA Second Team, while Jillian Humphrey was chosen for the C-USA All-Freshman Team.

Cole has guided Rice to an overall record of 18-12 and 13-6 in C-USA. This is Cole's second all-conference honor as the junior appeared on the second team in 2010. The 6-3 middle blocker ranks among the top 10 in the league in hitting percentage (.329), kills (3.24) and blocks (1.03).

Murphy, a setter from Plano, Texas, leads Rice in double-doubles with 13 and is averaging 10.83 assists per set (1,213 assists). She also has 135 kills and averages 2.60 digs per set.

Humphrey, from nearby Shoreacres, Texas, leads Rice in blocking with 130 blocks for a team-high 1.16 blocks per set. The middle blocker also sports a 2.12 kills per set average with 237 kills on the year for a .243 hitting percentage.

Rice concludes regular season play Wednesday night with a 7 p.m. match at Houston.
