Southern @ Rice

Current Records: Southern 1-1; Rice 1-1

What to Know

The Southern Jaguars will take on the Rice Owls at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Tudor Fieldhouse. Southern will be strutting in after a win while Rice will be stumbling in from a defeat.

It was a close one, but this past Saturday the Jaguars sidestepped the Tulane Green Wave for a 73-70 victory. Southern got double-digit scores from four players: guard Jayden Saddler (13), guard Tyrone Lyons (12), guard Brion Whitley (12), and guard P.J. Byrd (12).

Meanwhile,'s it's hard to picture a worse loss than the 79-46 bruising that Rice suffered against the Houston Cougars this past Friday.

Rice's defeat took them down to 1-1 while Southern's win pulled them up to 1-1. Jayden Saddler will be someone to keep an eye on after he dropped a double-double on 13 points and 11 assists this past Saturday. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Rice's defense can bottle him up.
