HOUSTON - Anne Peck scored a career-high 20 points to lead Rice's 76-69 victory over Tulsa in a Western Athletic Conference women's basketball game Saturday afternoon at Autry Court.
Peck scored nine straight Rice points during a critical second-half run. Her three-point play with 4:20 left gave the Owls a two-point lead at 61-59. After Tulsa tied the game with 3:51 remaining in the game, she sank a pair of free throws 10 seconds later, added a jump shot in the lane with 2:56 left, and hit another jump shot with 1:17 to go, giving Rice a 67-63 lead. The Owls never trailed again.
Rice led 36-29 at the half, taking the lead on a three-pointer from Kate Beckler with 7:08 remaining.
The Lady Owls (7-7, 4-1 WAC) led by as much as eight in the second half, but Tulsa regained the lead (57-56) on a three-point play by Jillian Robbins with 6:25 left in the game. Then Peck took over.
Also for Rice, Lindsey Maynard had 14 points, the sixth consecutive game in which she has scored in double figures. Beckler had 11, including three three-point field goals.
