HOUSTON (AP) Chris Anderson scored 17 points and Jaron Johnson added 16 as Louisiana Tech grabbed a piece of the Conference USA title with a 70-48 victory over Rice on Thursday night.

Alex Hamilton chipped in 11 points and Kenneth Smith added nine assists for the Bulldogs (25-6, 13-3), who share the top-spot in the Conference USA with Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss.

Louisiana Tech was ahead by seven at the half, but Rice went over 5 minutes in the second without a basket. Louisiana Tech took advantage of the Owls' dry spell with a 13-0 run that broke open the Bulldogs' lead, putting them up by 22 points and ahead for good.
