Re: 1/24 | Fordham Rams | 7PM

Fordham is the last A10 team to defeat URI - the 53-43 stinker last Feb 15th at the Ryan Center and the game that likely kicked their collective arses into another gear. Since then they've had a 9 and a 10 game winning streak, winning 23 of the next 27. Let's keep that going! Edit - 24 of next 28. ...

Re: 1/24 | Fordham Rams | 7PM

I’m going to need Fordham to score in the 40’s and for Rhody to double them up at some point. Nothing less than this is acceptable. I am still mad.

Re: '18 MD PF Jermaine Harris (URI Signed LOI)

Some of his teams’ games must be the most difficult to watch and foul-filled ones ever, between how often Jermaine seems to be in foul trouble/foul out and how many free throws he shoots. Love to see a free throw rate like that in a big, though.

I find the reactions of Saint Louis fans on their message board not at all interesting and completely predictable. No one knows the facts outside of the case, but the default of fans in these situations tends to be, “of course our boys are innocent, we know bitches lie anyway.”

Rhode Island now comes in at 34 on KenPom.

Their conference record prediction is 15-3, up from 13-5.

They’re also now favored in all of their remaining games. The game at Bona moved to 52%, from somewhere around 46%.

Re: Week # 10 - Games of Interest

Rhode Island is the only A10 team with an at-large chance right now, and the way the conference is set up this year, playing your way into that chance is very unlikely to happen. Anyone else will have to win the tournament.
