Re: Who Can't Rhody Beat?

No one in the country wants to play us just like last year.


I’ve watched a lot of big east this year and I’d be confident against any team... It’s the big teams like Zona and Purdue that I would be worried about. I really want another crack at Virginia with a healthy EC and Cyril.

Re: Parfait Bitee

Bitee had one of the best performances I’ve ever seen against Syracuse. He was the most efficient player on the floor. I beleive he was close to a double double with about 20 pts and 8 assists against Johnny Flynn who was one the best guards in the country. Man that game was fun... If Dan Hurley coa...

Re: Jeff Dowtin

You could make a real good argument that he's the most important player on the team. Great point guard play is more important than any other position nowadays and URI certainly has that. IMO he's the best PG I've seen at URI. There's not even a close second. I've been following them since my freshm...

Re: Who has been the most pleasant surprise of the season so far?

I would have to say Andre. I'm not surprised how good he's been on offense. I am surprised how much better he is on D. He has worked his ass off and clearly earned that starting spot.

We are lucky Berry has been so good since Cyril has not progressed as much as I expected.

I'm very confused on how this was a "much closer" game the last 5 minutes. We were up 67-53 and LaSalle went on a 5-0 run to bring the lead down to 9. We immediately brought the lead back up to 72-58 after a nice layup from JT and a three from EC.

We win that game with or without Johnson.
