Rice weekend
Friday 3:00 and Saturday 2:00? in Houston: Rice (9-3, 3-1 CUSA). ESPN+

Results to date: Incarnate Word (68-53); Our Lady of the Lake (103-64); Letourneau (94-74); Houston Baptist (86-64); New Mexico (61-72); Houston Baptist (90-79); Sam Houston State (69-82); New Orleans (73-62); UTSA (95-86); UTSA (84-69); UTEP (89-101); UTEP (71-68).

Last game: A back-and-forth 1st half ended tied @34. An early 12-0 run put Rice up 8 and the teams traded runs the rest of the game as Rice prevailed 71-68. Rice shot 47% FG (8-17 3s) while holding UTEP to 39% FG, but 9-16 FT and 15 TOs hurt the Owls.

Stats: 81.9 pts (vs 72.8); .467 FG (.369 3s); .696 FT; +4.7 RB; A/TO= 1.26

Starters (UTEP)
F Riley Abercrombie (6-9 210 So). 22.6 min.; .379 FG (22-61 3s); .765 FT; 4.8 RB; 8.4 pts (5 starts)
F Max Fiedler (6-10 235 So). 27.2 min.; .691 FG; .714 FT; 9.4 RB; 4 assists; 12.5 pts
G Curtis Mullins (6-3 190 Jr). 28.8 min.; .436 FG (12-35 3s); .737 FT; 3.8 RB; 11.3 pts
G Quincy Olivares (6-2 190 So). 25.8 min.; .485 FG (37-76 3s); .794 FT; 4.7 RB; 16.2 pts
G Travis Evee (6-1 200 So). 30.2 min.; .460 FG (40-96 3s); .793 FT; 2.1 RB; 3 assists; 15.8 pts

Bench
G Cavit Ege Havsa (6-5 180 Sr). 21.2 min.; .446 FG (8-26 3s); .700 FT; 2.5 RB; 3.5 assists; 5.4 pts (5 starts)
G Tre Clark (6-5 205 Sr). 16.4 min.; .400 FG (1-8 3s); 3.8 RB; 3.3 pts (5 starts)
G Payton Moore (6-4 215 Jr). 12.3 min.; .525 FG (5-17 3s); .559 FT; 2.2 RB; 5.5 pts
G/F Cameron Sheffield (6-6 180 Fr). .296 FG (4-17 3s); .571 FT; 2.1 RB; 2.3 pts

Cream-puff OOC may have inflated some stats but the team can shoot…in 4 CUSA games .535 FG (.427 3s). Evee (CUSA POW Jan 4) and Olivares very dangerous snipers. Thin front line, but Fiedler has been very effective. Rice takes 29.3 3s/g yet attempts 18.1 FTs/g.

Note: ODU website has Sat game @ 2:00 ET while Rice website shows 3:00 ET both days.

RE: Rice weekend
They can shoot. Play bad defense.

They aren't a good team but I expect Rice will get hot one game and drain a bunch of 3s and then we blow them out in the other game. :)

RE: Rice weekend
They seem a little up and down. You could say the same about us. I have a feeling this will be a split.

RE: Rice weekend
I was told 3 EST Friday and 2EST Saturday
Rice can be an odd bunch to work with administratively, plus their coach seems a bit high strung
these game may magically change to midnight knowing Rice

RE: Rice weekend
Con...long trip with back to back games
Pro...we are better than them at ALMOST every spot on the floor

This should be 2 wins for the Monarchs and we shouldn't care by how much. However and scoring droughts will doom us especially in the last 5 minutes of the game. These are must win games is we want to contend in CUSA.

I’m usually more optimistic, but I haven’t seen anything yet from this team that makes me think they are a contender. I hope you are right, but I’m expecting a split.

Fiedler will be a match-up problem for the Monarchs. He's very mobile...he draws his defender out from the paint and can both execute the pick and roll or pass to a cutting guard (that's why Rice gets a lot of FTs) or open sniper.

Also, Evee has a super-quick release for 3.

Keys for ODU are constraining 3s (< 10 makes), limiting FT attempts and forcing TOs which turn into points.

It should be illegal for Xavier Green to shoot the basketball. It is pathetic.

Getting to the rim at will, Jones must’ve lit into that trash offensive start.

RE: Rice weekend
This team is almost unwatchable. Few teams are so inept at shooting the ball. Yet another game I have to turn off early. This is getting very bad.

Rice on fire from 3. Down 20 with about 3 minutes left in first half. Whoever said size doesn't matter should be watching this game.

RE: Rice weekend
ODU hasn’t had one player that can hit shots like that or even got hot like that since Bazemore. Not having guys that can shoot when the entire sport is now predicated on it is beyond frustrating
