The Frogs (6-5, Conference USA 2-2-0) were out-shot 7-6 with only one shot on goal in the first period, but came back in the second half to out-shoot Rice (2-6-0), 15-7, and double their shot total.

We wish those who believe homosexuality is wrong would give those who live it a day to be themselves, be unafraid, be proud and be accepted.
