Re: A10 Tournament possible seeding

If the seeds stay relatively the same, that 1 seed will have a tough game facing Davidson/Fordham. Davidson is always dangerous if they get hot and Fordham has shown they can beat anybody this year.

Re: 2016-17 URI Women's Basketball

I've been to 3 games this year (all losses). Wilson missing has really hurt this team, and they have yet to find a legitimate scoring option behind her.
