Hank Egan, the University of San Diego basketball coach, says he always likes his team to open the season on the road. That way, he can get an idea of how the players respond in unfamiliar surroundings. Tonight, in its 1987-88 season opener, USD will open against Rice University at 6:30 (PST) at Houston. It's the first time USD has ever played at Rice. It's also the first time that this particular USD team will play together anywhere.
