Six C-USA Rice Owls Women's Basketball Games Selected for ESPN+ Announced

Posted: November 24, 2020 -- 10:59 a.m. CT

Tuesday, Conference USA announced six Rice women's conference basketball games have been selected for streaming on the ESPN+ platform.

The Owls' home games against UAB (Jan. 22) and WKU (Feb. 12), along with road contests at UTSA (Jan. 2), Old Dominion (Jan. 16), North Texas (Jan. 28) and Southern Miss (Feb. 6) will be streamed on ESPN+.

Both of the Owls first two road games (Little Rock/UT-Arlington) will also be streamed on ESPN+, bringing the total games on the platform to eight. Additional Rice games may be picked up by ESPN+ throughout the season.

Game times for Rice's 12 home dates were also unveiled with the Owls tipping off the new season tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 25) when they host Houston Baptist at 2 p.m on CUSAtv.

All three of Rice's non-conference home games will begin at 2 p.m., including tilts against Texas Southern (Dec. 11) and Louisiana (Dec. 16).

C-USA adjusted this season's conference format to a new 18-game regular season format that focuses on the health and safety of the student-athletes. Schools will play two games per visit at four select C-USA schools and host four select teams for a two-game series, while playing a rival opponent one time home and away.

The goal was to reduce the amount of travel during conference play, with the aim of minimizing the risks associated with COVID-19. Additionally, the final week of the regular season may be utilized to reschedule any postponed games.
