Another observation. While both teams are well motivated for this game, I think the short term impact of a win is stronger for the Bonnies. A win for them will strengthen their chances for a NCAAT and counter their early stumble in A-10 play. For URI, the impact of a win has less short term impact s...

Unlike Richmond with its strong starting five and little depth, St. Bonaventure presents a somewhat deeper team and more bench power then the Spiders.
