ORLANDO, Fla. - The University of Rhode Island men's basketball team saw its roller-coaster season end with a 66-54 loss to Central Florida in the quarterfinals of the CBI Tournament Tuesday night.
After leading 30-27 at the half, the Rams failed to find a way to stop Central Florida, which opened the second half with an 18-5 run.
Delory James led URI with 18 points, scoring nine of the team's first 13 in the game. No other Ram had double figures and URI hit just 20 of 48 from the floor and 6 of 18 3-pointers.
PROVIDENCE â€” Coventry junior three-sport athlete Alex Zannella is a winner.
No, Zannella isnâ€™t a winner in the clichÃ©d, metaphorical sense of the term. The Oaker is a winner because heâ€™s a talented athlete, who works hard and frequently finds himself playing with like-minded players.
Whether it be on the baseball diamond, the football field or the hockey ice, Zannellaâ€™s teams have usually been successful and he is usually one of the big reasons for that success.
