Texas update

Texas women’s basketball signees Joyner Holmes of Cedar Hill and Alecia Sutton of St. Louis are two of 20 high school players nationally to have been named to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Preseason Girls Basketball Team, as announced by USA Today…. Senior post Imani Boyette needs just 8 points to become the 38th player in school history to reach the 1,000-point plateau. Boyette also managed her 29th career double-double of her career in Wednesday’s 86-33 victory over Northwestern (La.) State.

Rice update

The Owls have opened the season with consecutive losses on the road — 72-39 to 18th-ranked Kentucky and 60-55 against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. This is the first season for Rice coach Tina Langley, who helped develop Maryland into a Final Four program the past seven years. In that span as Maryland’s associate head coach, the Terrapins went 195-49. Maryland has reached the Final Four the past two season, finishing last year with a 34-3 record.
