• According to Zags Blog, Patterson (N.C.) School forward Arsalan Kazemi committed to Rice yesterday. Kazemi chose the Owls over Maryland and Seton Hall.

“I notified Maryland and I notified Seton Hall,” said Anthony Ibrahim, Kazemi’s adviser who lives in Texas. “We canceled the visit to Maryland.

“The young man took the visit [to Rice] and he fell in love with the school and said they did a great job. They showed him they needed him bad. He loved the school, the campus. He liked the guys on the team and he said, ‘I want to be an Owl.’”
