Rice continued his high-scoring ways, notching 28 points, seven rebounds and three assists to help lead a second half comeback. At one point the junior guard scored seven points in less than a minute, finishing 10 of 16 from the floor and 3 for 5 from the 3-point line.
Three stars next in line:
If you've got a stat sheet that needs filled out, call Mr. Abrams. The junior guard had another well-round effort, posting 16 points, four assists, three rebounds, two blocks and a steal.
The elder statesman needed only seven shots to score 14 points, hitting all of his free throws to go along with his four makes from the field. He added five rebounds in his 29 minutes of run.
He missed five of his seven shots, but Egwu pulled down seven boards and had two blocks. He and the team started slow on the boards but buckled down later in the game to take care of business.
