Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

I like that Hurley is praising SBU and promoting them as an NCAA team. It is good for the league. Nice to see he is nothing like the classless Phil Martelli who offered no support to URI several years back when it was fighting for NCAA consideration.

I don't think it was a coincidence that ESPN did not show the last shot in a replay. JT was fouled. Would have been three fta.

Good game. SBU needed it more. Good for the conference as it now at this moment has two NCAA teams.

Nevada stayed in the top 25 rankings even after a loss at home last week to UNLV. They in fact dropped just one spot from #23 to #24. If URI were to beat Richmond and then lose at St Bonaventure this week, there is a good chance Rhody would still remain in the top 25 rankings
