URI Notebook: Murray a game-changer

January 22, 2011

KINGSTON – The last play will be the easiest to remember, especially because of the way it turned out.
Everyone in the Ryan Center knew Marquis Jones was getting the ball and that explains why La Salle did everything it could to prevent him from taking it to the basket, instead forcing the senior to take a 3-pointer deep off the left wing.
It was the play that decided Saturday’s game, but it wasn’t the reason URI lost to La Salle, 76-75, Saturday afternoon.

Notes from halftime - La Salle 32, URI 28

January 22, 2011

Some stats from halftime:
-URI shoots an impressive 8 for 30, making a stout 3 of 16 from the 3-point line. What's impressive is that they kept trying to shoot from deep when it obviously wasn't working.
-La Salle's Aaric Murray picked up two quick fouls and only played nine minutes. He scored eight points. Had he not picked up the second foul, URI would be in some serious trouble.
-URI forced 12 turnovers, which would be great if it didn't commit nine.
-The Rams have assisted on 75 percent of their field goals, which would be an awesome stat if they had made more than eight buckets.
