Rayvonte Rice's sophomore season in 2011-12 exceeded the outstanding freshman campaign that saw him earn honorable mention All-Missouri Valley Conference recognition, as well All-Freshman and All-Newcomer status.

Rice turned in one of the best freshman seasons in the history of Drake basketball last year, scoring a freshman-record 428 points. He led the team in scoring (13.8), rebounding (4.8), blocked shots (0.8) and steals (1.4). The 6-4 guard will be surrounded in 2011-12 by a veteran, experienced supporting cast in the frontcourt, and join several dynamic newcomers and returnees in the backcourt, as the focal point for the drive to excellence that he and his team strives for.

An exceptional athlete with explosive physical skills combining size, speed, strength and shooting ability, Rice showed as a freshman the ability to create opportunities for himself and teammates off the dribble and be an effective scorer in the low post.

On Drake's four-game foreign tour of Australia and New Zealand in August 2011, Rice averaged 20.5 points and five rebounds per game, and added 11 steals and five assists.

2011-12 (Sophomore) -- Started every game since the opener and led the team in scoring, steals, minutes, and free throws made, finishing second in rebounding. He led the Missouri Valley in steals at 1.9 per game, averaged the third most minutes per game in the MVC (33.4), the third highest scoring average (16.8), and was top ten in defensive rebounding...Rice was named to collegehoops.net's Pre-League Play All-MVC team along with Creighton's Doug McDermott, Evansville's Colt Ryan, Missouri State's Kyle Weems and Bradley's Taylor Brown.

  • Recorded his second career double-double against No. 14/15 Creighton (1/25) pulling down a career-high 11 rebounds and knocking in 23 points.

  • Scored 20 or more points in three consecutive games (23 at Iowa, 12/17; 29 vs. Central Arkansas, 12/21; and 22 vs. Indiana State, 12/28), the first Bulldog to string together as many 20-plus point games since Josh Young topped the 20-point mark in four consecutive games in December of 2008.
  • Had 22 points, two blocks, and three steals in victory over Cal State Northridge (11-26-11)
  • Tied career high with 23 points in victory over Winthrop (11/19) at Paradise Jam.

2010-11 (Freshman) -- Earned honorable mention All-Missouri Valley Conference recognition and named to MVC's All-Freshman and All-Newcomer teams.

  • One of just two Bulldogs to start each of the team's 31 games (Ryan Wedel).
  • Led Drake in scoring (13.8 ppg), rebounding (4.8), blocked shots (0.8), steals (1.4), free throws (148) and free-throw attempts (103).
  • Set new Drake freshman scoring record with 428 points, topping previous mark of 412 (Luke McDonald, 2000-01).
  • Ranked sixth in the MVC in scoring (2nd among freshmen), fourth in steals and ninth in blocked shots.
  • Over the final 10 games averaged 16.1 points and shot better than 45% from the field to raise his season figure to 40.2.
  • Led or tied for the team lead in scoring 15 times, and led in assists 8 times and rebounds 7 times.
  • Scored in double figures in a team-high 25 games, including 14 of 18 league games.
  • Set Drake freshman record for made free throws (103) and rebounds (149); tied record for made field goals (143) and tied for fourth-most three-pointers by a freshman.
  • Scored season-high 23 points twice, first vs. Chicago State (12/23/10) and again at Southern Illinois (2/2/11).
  • Poured in 20 or more points four times to tie for most on the team (Ryan Wedel), and Drake was 3-1 in those games.
  • Blocked four shots in MVC tournament game vs. Bradley (3/3), tying team season best (VanDeest, vs. Southern Utah, 11/24/10).
