The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners host the Rice Owls in a CUSA tilt on Thursday.

The Rice Owls have won two straight after knocking off Louisiana Tech 78-66 on Saturday as an 8.5 home dog.

Rice went on a 48-33 second half run to overcome a three point deficit behind an 11-25 performance from beyond the arc and a 13-8 edge at the stripe.

Ako Adams led the Owls offense with 16 points and three yanks while Jack Williams added 15 points and eleven rebounds.

Chris Mullins gave Rice another 15 points, five pulls and six helpers followed by a combined 19 points and eleven rebounds from Robert Mullins and Trey Murphy III.

The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners opened their conference schedule with consecutive wins against UTEP after a 67-63 victory on Saturday as a 1.5 point road dog.

UTSA was down seven at the intermission before a 34-23 second half run secured the victory.

Jhivvan Jackson carried the Roadrunners with a contest high 24 points with five pulls and five helpers followed by Keaton Wallace with 16 points and four pulls.

Nick Allen gave UTSA 14 points and four boards while Giovanni De Nicolao chipped in with seven points, eight rebounds and three helpers.

The Roadrunners look like a very dangerous squad in the CUSA but need to continue to prove themselves…

Pick:
UTSA -8.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
