Addison Owen went all the way to Spain to see the world and play basketball with his Rice teammates. He also received some great news.

Owen, a junior walk-on from Atlanta, was surprised by Owls coach Scott Pera with a scholarship Friday in a surprise announcement with the team on its foreign trip in Spain.

Credit for Pera to milking some drama and intrigue out of the situation, but even more kudos for giving an available scholarship to a two-time Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Rollee.
