The Brown Bears have a rare chance at the Governor’s Cup, if they can upset the Rams on Friday night.
After a surprising upset of Providence College, the Brown University Bears have a chance at the Governor’s Cup in men’s basketball for the first time since 2006. Standing in their way will be the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team, as the Rams look to avoid being upset like the Friars were last week. The game is at 7 p.m. at the Ryan Center. Last Friday, the Bears shocked the Friars 69-68 at home with a 3-pointer from Tucker Halpren with 7.3 seconds left. For a recap from Brown Athletics, click here. The game was the first since 1982 between the Friars and Brown at a true home site for the Bears. Last Friday’s game was played at the Pizzitola Sports Center, as opposed to the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Following the game with …

The Friars use 44 points inside from Kadeem Batts and LaDontae Henton to overwhelm URI in the second half, 72-57.
PROVIDENCE – Despite a lack of depth, a single point lead at the half turned into 15 by the end of the game, as the Providence College Friars hammered the Rhode Island Rams inside for a 72-57 win Thursday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. URI (2-7) had no answer inside for center Kadeem Batts and LaDontae Henton, who both scored on hooks, post-ups and put-backs throughout the game’s 40 minutes. Henton finished with 21 points and 17 rebounds, and also picked off four passes. Batts had a game-high 23 points and seven rebounds. Providence (7-2) leading scorer Bryce Cotton visibly struggled with a knee injury most of the game, running at half speed. By the end of the game, Cotton was limping, although the Friars were forced to keep him in …

While both teams are at less than full strength, the annual game between Providence College and the University of Rhode Island is always scrappy.
The University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team will look for its second straight win, and its third in four games, at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center against a depleted Providence College 7 p.m. Thursday. Although the Rams are 2-6 overall, and the Friars the inverse at 6-2, the teams are in roughly equivalent positions because of depth. URI’s frontcourt is incredibly thin, with senior Ryan Brooks and freshmen Jordan Hare and Mike Aaman needed to play major minutes against PC inside presence Kadeem Batts. The Rams don’t really have any answers inside for Batts, who’s averaging 17 points and eight rebounds per game. However, the Friars might not have much beyond Batts, as PC is expected to suit up just five or six scholarship players, …

In recognition of the fine work of area college students, Narragansett Patch has no problem printing the names of any making Dean’s List at their various colleges. To be eligible, you must be a Narragansett High School or Prout School graduate, or cite Narragansett as your hometown in university records. (Note: This does mean that sometimes, we will incorrectly list University of Rhode Island students as being from Narragansett, but better to have a few too many than to leave some off.) The following is a list of the recipients of the honor for the first semester of the 2011-12 academic year. Congrats folks! The Community College of Rhode Island does not release hometowns with its Dean’s List, however, it is viewable here. The same goes …
