The University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team looks for its second win of the season 2 p.m. Saturday, as the Vermont Catamounts come to the Ryan Center.
The Rams will look to bounce back from a tough 55-52 loss to George Mason University on Wednesday.
URI had the game in hand at various points, but a lack of precision from the free throw line cost them. The Rams finished 13-for-26 from the free throw line, and they’re shooting 60.2 percent for the year from the stripe.
To read a recap of the URI-George Mason game from GoRhody, click here. Also available online is the URI Basketball Hour with broadcaster Steve McDonald and head coach Dan Hurley from the Mews Tavern. They have also written a preview story for URI vs. Vermont, which is accessible here.
From that preview, historically the Rams have dominated Vermont. URI holds a 40-7 record against the Catamounts. But if Vermont is going to gain ground in the series, this could be the year, as the Rams are rebuilding and the Catamounts are 4-1.
We will be starting the live chat right around 2 p.m., which is when tip-off is scheduled for.
