Rice 71, Marshall 61, OT

HOUSTON — Marshall women’s basketball gave up a 15-point advantage to Rice in the final seven minutes of regulation and got outscored 12-2 in overtime on the road on Sunday.

Marshall coach Matt Daniel said, “They close the game on a 29-4 run. You can’t win a game like that. We were up 15 with six minutes to go. We should have won the ball game, plain and simple.”

After making eight three-pointers in the first half, Marshall (9-17, 3-10 C-USA) finished 9 or 28 beyond the arc. Marshall’s Erica Woods sank a layup with 20 seconds left to force overtime at 59-59.

Suporia Dickens had a career-high 21 points, making five treys for the Thundering Herd. Shay Weaver had nine points and six rebounds.

Jessica Kuster had 16 points for the Owls (12-14, 4-9), who trailed 30-22 at the half after shooting only 26 percent from the floor.
