URI misses 25 shots from the 3-point arc in a 55-42 loss to Xavier on Wednesday night.
KINGSTON – With a dismal 24.1 percent shooting performance from the field, the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team faded in the second half against Xavier, seeing a one-point halftime lead turn into a 55-42 loss on Wednesday night. Despite getting a slew of open looks from 3-point range, the Rams could only hit five of their 30 attempts from the arc. Although URI (8-17, 3-9 Atlantic 10) did get 10 assists on its 13 baskets and only turned the ball over eight times, Xavier took advantage of trips to the line to surge past the Rams in the second half. The Musketeers (15-10, 8-4 Atlantic 10) finished 17-for-24 from the line, and generally had their way in the paint for both halves. Six-foot-eight senior forward Travis Taylor …
The Rams will try to give the Musketeers a loss, while gaining funds for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation.
The University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team will attempt to win a third game in a row for the first time this year, as they host the Xavier Musketeers at 7 p.m. tonight in the seventh annual Pink Out game. For the game, fans are being encouraged to wear pink, and t-shirts are sold at the door for $10. Proceeds benefit the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation. URI (8-16, 3-8 Atlantic 10) still has a chance at the Atlantic 10 tournament in Brooklyn. The Rams are a game behind No. 12 Dayton and No. 13 St. Bonaventure for the final spot in the tournament, as the top 12 teams qualify. URI has back-to-back wins, against Dayton and Duquesne, and this is only the second opportunity this year for a three-game streak for the Rams. While …

Xavier Munford led all scorers with 18, included a 3-point shot with 3.3 left that gave the Rams a 75-72 win.
KINGSTON – It was a familiar refrain for the Dayton Flyers, as another Atlantic 10 game with the University of Rhode Island Rams ended with No. 5 hitting a game-winning shot. This time though, it was Xavier Munford – not URI alum Marquis Jones – that did the honors, as his 3 with 3.3 left gave the Rams a 75-72 lead they wouldn’t surrender. Munford led all scorers with 18 points, shaking off a 1-for-6 start in the first half to finish 6-for-14 from the field, and 3-for-5 from the line. However, URI senior Nikola Malesevic played the most complete game. Malesevic finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and just two turnovers. While he only shot 5-for-16 from the field and 0-for-3 from the line, the …

In what’s sure to be a sparsely attended game, the Rams host St. Bonaventure at 7 p.m.
KINGSTON – Join me on tonight’s live chat and keep me company, since it’s likely there won’t be many people actually at the Ryan Center as the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team (6-15, 1-7 Atlantic 10) hosts St. Bonaventure (10-11, 3-5 Atlantic 10). This game mirrors a contest between URI and Fairfield a few years ago, in which about 500 hardy fans made it into the Ryan Center to watch the game, thanks to 20 inches of snow outside. While plows have been out most of the day in Rhode Island, the roads are still a mess, and almost all of Washington County and Aquidneck Island are still without power. Both factors will surely depress attendance. But hey, if you’re inside and have power, or have a working smart phone, follow along…

A dagger 3-point shot from Eric Mosley with 22 seconds puts the Bonnies up by four and sinks the Rams.
KINGSTON – University of Rhode Island head coach Danny Hurley wasn’t shy when sharing his thoughts on this year’s team and the future following a 67-61 loss to St. Bonaventure. “This is never happening to me again,” he said of the team’s 6-16 mark, and 1-8 record in Atlantic 10 play. “This will never happen again, I know that.” What happened Saturday night was a Rams’ team that faded in the second half and down the stretch again. A six-point halftime lead turned into a six-point deficit at the end, thanks to a St. Bonaventure team that only turned the ball over twice. In contrast, URI got easy buckets in the first half on 10 St. Bonaventure turnovers and in transition. With those opportunities gone, the Rams struggled, shooting just 33.3 …

Rhody struggles to score in the second half, falling behind by as many as 15, before rallying and falling short against VCU.
Thanks to a cold snap in the second half, the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team couldn’t keep up with Virginia Commonwealth, falling 70-64 on Wednesday night. A late run by Rhody (6-13, 1-5 Atlantic 10) made the final a bit closer, as VCU (17-5, 5-2 Atlantic 10) struggled to put URI away. VCU led by 15 points with four minutes remaining. Three-point shots by Xavier Munford, Andre Malone and T.J. Buchanan got URI as close as five in the final two minutes, but VCU hit enough free throws down the stretch to win. However, a usual malady struck URI in the second half, as Rhody went long stretches without scoring. After just seven first half turnovers, the press wore URI down, as they committed 11 in the second half. URI’s …
URI looks to recover from a loss at Fordham by upsetting VCU at home.
For the second straight game, the Rams take on the Rams, although this time, the Rams will hope for a better outcome against the Rams. On Saturday, the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball game lost 66-65 at Fordham. (Or, depending on what account of the game you read, maybe it was 66-63.) Andre Malone led URI (6-12, 1-4 Atlantic 10) with 12 points, but leading scorer Xavier Munford struggled, scoring just 10 points on 3-for-13 shooting. URI will host Virginia Commonwealth University at 7 p.m., with VCU (16-5, 4-2 Atlantic) looking to bounceback from a 69-61 loss at home. The loss knocked VCU out of the Top 25 rankings, from their spot of No. 19.
