Mansfield Timberview alum Chris Mullins began his sophomore season with Rice on a solid note defensively.
In the Owls’ 91-43 season-opening loss to Arkansas on Nov. 5, the 6-foot-3-inch, 193-pound guard collected two steals and a block to go with two points, three rebounds and an assist.
A Conference USA All-Freshman Team selection last year, Mullins averaged around 12 points, three assists and one steal per contest. He recorded a career-high five steals against Penn on Nov. 9, 2018.
Mullins led Timberview to the Class 5A state championship as a junior and was named the game’s MVP following a 36-point performance. He also earned his district’s defensive MVP honor.
His father played college football at Memphis from 1986 to 1990. Mullins is an undeclared student in Rice’s engineering program.
