The first thing his bio on RiceOwls.com reads is that Almond is a "silky smooth shooter with excellent offensive instincts." Well said. And, at no time was Almond's scoring touch on more display than his senior year at Rice where he averaged 26.4 points on 48.3 percent shooting. That Rice team went 16-16 while no other Rice player even averaged double figures in scoring. A scorer first, Almond also managed to lead the Owls in rebounding that year with 6.6 a game.
