Over the weekend, the Rice Owls clinched a spot in the NCBA DII World Series as LSC Montgomery fell to the Corps of Cadets twice.  Heading into the weekend, the Owls could advance to the world series with one loss by Montgomery.  The Corps of Cadets did what the Owls knew they would.  They reinforced their status as the best team Rice had played all year.

The Owls will conclude their regular season this week with a rescheduled game versus cross-town rival UH-Downtown.  Rice has compiled an 11-3 record in District VII, and has won every weekend series this spring.

From the NCBA:

5/3/2010 — Rice is World Series Bound!
