Re: Koch on URI BB Commitment

All the schools you mention are playing FBS level football. URI will never be FBS, so the AAC football is out of reach. URI can't even compete in the CAA, let alone with FBS schools. There are high schools down South who have better football facilities than URI. Exactly my point, we will never be F...

His team advances as Shakur has 23 points, 16 rebounds and this block. If we get this kid, we could be talking another big run next year.

Re: Celebrate the Team Thursday 5pm at Ryan Center (Note Updated Time)

Dan got Will to come out and do a couple of his celebrations, as it seems Will has become a bit of a celebrity. By the time I got to the end of the line for meeting the guys, it was out to the lobby, so I didn't stay for that. Short (about 50 minutes), but fun.

Dowtin and Garrett can match up defensively with bigger guards and smaller, quicker guards respectively. Nice to have that option. It might be tough to have both Jarvis and Fatts on the floor together though.

Re: Game #35: Oregon (NCAA Tournnment Rd of 32) - Sun March 19

When you outscore a team 66-57 from the field, you should probably win. Even if one team is more aggressive offensively, 27 free throws compared to 8 free throws is ridiculous. Yet, even with the one-sided calls, we still should have won.
