Quincy Olivari Named C-USA Player of the Week

POSTED: December 5, 2022 -- 1:18 p.m. CT

Rice men's basketball guard Quincy Olivari was named the Conference USA Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday afternoon.

It's his first C-USA honor this season and his second career.

Olivari led Rice to a pair of wins, averaging 28.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals. He opened the week scoring 20 of his game-high 27 points in the second half, in a 70-62 victory over Prairie View A&M. With Rice trailing by 12 in the second half, he scored 13 straight points to rally the Owls. Olivari also had five rebounds, three assists and a career-high three steals while connecting on a career-best 11-of-14 from the free throw line.

Then, Olivari scored a season-high 30 points, his second career 30-point game, in an 83-71 victory at reigning Sun Belt regular season champion Texas State. He tied his season-high with five three-pointers while adding five rebounds and five assists.

On the week, Olivari connected on 54.8% (17-of-31) from the floor, 50.0% (7-of-14) from three and 76.2% (16-of-21) from the free throw line. His performance has helped Rice to a five-game winning streak, its longest since 2016-17.

Rice closes its road trip next Monday, December 12, when it travels to Austin to face second-ranked Texas. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT and will televised by the Longhorn Network.
