Rice earned Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year honors while scoring 12.9 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. He is one of the most efficient scorings options on the Texas team, helping guide the Longhorns to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2008.

In the first-round matchup against Colgate, Rice scored 23 points on seven three-pointers.
