Men's basketball falls to UAB

(02/21/13 12:00am)

After dropping a nip and tuck contest in West Virginia last week, the Rice men's basketball team continued to be plagued by road woes in Birmingham, Ala., last weekend. The Owls (5-20, 1-10) were blown out Saturday by the University of Alabama, Birmingham, suffering their fifth straight loss this season and falling to 0-9 in their all-time series against the Blazers (12-14, 4-7).

Men's Basketball has an off day against SMU

(02/15/13 12:00am)

Less than two weeks removed from an outing in which the Rice men's basketball team scored 54 points in a single half, the Owls (519, 1-9) were unable to match such offensive output in a frustrating conference defeat. Hosting the Southern Methodist University Mustangs (13-12, 3-7) last Saturday, Rice had its worst shooting day of the season in a 61-39 defeat at Tudor Fieldhouse. The Owls came out with a game plan to attack offensively from the perimeter, converting on four out of 13 attempts from behind the 3-point line in the first half. But Rice simply could not produce any offense from inside the arc, scoring just two points in the paint over the first 20 minutes against SMU. Led by legendary NCAA and NBA Head Coach Larry Brown, the Mustangs took a 26-17 lead at the half. Sophomore guard Julian DeBose and senior guard Tamir Jackson each reached double digits in scoring for Rice, but the Owls struggled all day from the field and were unable to bring the deficit within single digits in the second half. The team shot just 19.6 percent (10 for 51) from the field for the game, falling at home on an offense-deprived evening.

Men's Basketball prepares for approaching UH game

(01/24/13 12:00am)

Losers of six straight, the Rice men's basketball team took a break from Conference USA play on Saturday as it hosted the University of New Orleans, a Division I Independent. After the teams exchanged baskets during the opening minutes of play, the Owls (4-14, 0-4) took control with a 21-6 run midway through the first half, capped off by a transition basket from Max Guercy. Junior Austin Ramljak's 3-pointer with 16 seconds left in the half put Rice ahead 44-27 at intermission.

Men's basketball perseveres

(01/10/13 12:00am)

The Rice men's basketball team, after fading late against the University of Texas at Austin Longhorns in a 57-41 defeat Dec. 29, traveled northeast last Saturday to play Harvard University in Rice's final game before opening its Conference USA schedule on Wednesday. But from the outset, the Owls (3-11) had no answer for their hot-shooting hosts as the Crimson (8-5) jumped out to a 43-21 halftime lead on 63 percent shooting from the field. Harvard hit as many 3-pointers in the first half as Rice had total baskets and Rice fell behind early in spite of a career-high 19 points from freshman guard Max Guercy, who was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week for his efforts. The Owls lost 92-62, falling to 3-10 in their most lopsided defeat of the season.

Men's basketball young and hungry

(11/09/12 12:00am)

When the Rice University men's basketball team's 2011-12 season came to an end last March with a loss to Oakland University in the quarterfinals of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament, there was a sense of optimism surrounding the program and its core that combined veteran experience, youth and energy. But during the seven-month-long basketball offseason, disappointment grew when six players decided to leave the the program.
