Kevin MacNamara’s justification for not voting for Rhody

A few points about the Journal’s senior writer covering college basketball for the State of RI. 1) His justification for voting for FSU is he has seen them a lot and likes their talent. FSU lost to BC tonight and is 2-4 in the ACC. URI is in his State. He should see them more. He has been to two gam...
