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.

Chariho knew it'd be facing a ton of pressure from the North Kingstown girls basketball team's defense Friday night.
It didn't matter what the Chargers knew - because the Skippers executed their game plan perfectly.
Switching from a zone press to man-to-man after the Chargers were breaking their press, the Skippers forced turnover after turnover - 29 in all - in a 58-40 win over Chariho Friday night.
The game was tied at four when the Skippers made the switch, and once they did they held Chariho without a field goal for the next six minutes, 44 seconds, taking a 19-8 lead in the process.
It all happened so fast.
Down 1-0, the East Greenwich hockey team gave up three goals in a 2 minute, 44 second span early in the second period and couldn't recover in a 6-2 loss to Cumberland Friday night at West Warwick Civic Center.
After a solid first period, EG gave up a goal just 1:47 into the second period and once Cumberland's scoring train got rolling, it couldn't be stopped. The Clippers scored 25 seconds later and ended the binge with 10:29 left in the period.
WEST WARWICK â€” Coventryâ€™s Zach Levesque was in middle school the last time he scored four goals in a hockey game.
Last night, it was dĂ©jĂ vu for the 5-foot, 6-inch senior as he scored all four goals for the Oakers in a 4-0 shutout over the Middletown Islanders.
