November 9th, 2021, Rice played Pepperdine at Rice Tudor Fieldhouse. All day, I had been attending the Rice E&C Global Summit. After the conference, I jumped on the University’s shuttle system and got myself down to Tudor Fieldhouse.
I was not to be disappointed. Rice played very well. After the first half, things were pretty much even. However, the coach must have given the Rice basketball team a good tongue lashing in the locker room because they came out like a disturbed hornet’s nest. Reminded me of the old “Phi Slama Jama”. I was impressed.
I do not think that Rice can compete with teams like Texas, Indiana, Villanova, A&M, and such. But, within conference USA, I am expecting to see some good things. Below, are more pictures.
