What was up with EC missing all five free throw attempts? If he had made a few, they got out of there in regulation.

Team seems off these past two games. Not showing that same drive and effort. Getting out-hustled. Hurley needs to get them back on track and finish the season strong.

The results of the games today helped URI's RPI ranking go from 10 to 7 by day's end. Rhody's rating is closely packed with a grouping of five teams which is producing much fluidity with the ranking of the teams to one another.
