It’s been a slow build for Rice basketball. Will the 2022-2023 season be the time when it all comes together and the Owls truly take flight?
Rice basketball head coach Scott Pera knows there’s no silver bullet. He’s coached a lot of basketball to this point and was honest in his preseason assessment of the 2022-2023 team and what he felt the program needed to do to take another step in the right direction.
“You can’t take huge jumps. It’s really hard to improve a lot in certain areas,” he said. “We’ve got to be a little better defensively. We’ve got to be a little bit better offensively. We’ve got to shoot the ball from the free throw line a little better.”
Little by little, Pera theorized, those gradual improvements stack up to meaningful change.
