Newport resident and URI pharmacy professor Celia MacDonnell brings together health care students for team-based learning.
Release by Rachel Donilon, a University of Rhode Island Marketing and Communications intern, and writing and rhetoric major.

In a miserable offensive game for both teams, the Rams are a bit less worse than the Bears, and win 59-47.
KINGSTON – The University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team awoke from a deep shooting slump just enough in the second half to pull away from the Brown Bears, 59-47, on Friday night. Xavier Munford scored 14 of his 18 in the second half, finishing with the team and game-high. The Bears fouled liberally down the stretch, which allowed Rhody guard Mike Powell to finish with 16 points, 9-of-12 from the line. The teams crawled out to a 21-14 football score at the half, with URI (5-8) holding the advantage. Except for a brief stretch in the second half that Munford dominated, and the final three minutes as Brown (4-8) gave fouls, neither team got into much of a rhythm. At the half, Brown was shooting 25 percent from the field. This dipped …

Our hometown college team is looking to rebound from the setback at the hands of Big East favorite Pittsburgh, while the visiting Ivy Leaguers from Providence are looking for an upset in the first leg of the yearly battle for state bragging rights.
KINGSTON - The University of Rhode Island men's basketball team (0-1) hosts Brown University (1-0) for a Tuesday, Nov. 16 non-conference matchup in the Ryan Center that is slated to tipoff at 7 p.m. In Rhode Island's previous outing, in a game that opened the Coaches vs. Cancer 2K Sports Classic and the 2010-2011 men's basketball season, the Rams gave the fifth-ranked Panthers everything they could handle, leading for much of the first half but ultimately falling 83-75. Delroy James led the way for URI in that one with a team-high 20 points. Brown opened its 105th season of intercollegiate basketball Friday evening at Fordham's Rose Hill Gym in the Bronx. Led by All-Ivy senior Peter Sullian, who scored 17 points, the Bears held on to …
