KINGSTON â€“ There wasnâ€™t much to say after the University of Rhode Islandâ€™s 72-45 loss to Xavier Sunday night.
In any game, coaches and players go out of their way to find a silver lining, something to grasp on to, something to make it easier to forget an otherwise sour day. Last Monday, the Ramsâ€™ left knowing they were blown out on the road by a Florida team that should find its way to the NCAA Tournament, a game that looked like an aberration from how the Rams have played this season.
It has not been a good first half for the URI men's basketball team. The Rams have struggled in every aspect of the game and trail Xavier 31-19, the lowest scoring first-half of the season.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 9
Xavier at URI, 6:30 p.m.
North Kingstown vs. Barrington at Portsmouth Abbey, 4 p.m.
Bay View Invitational at Tootell Aquatic Center, 1 p.m.
