Preview

As many of our posters here are aware, in-state Brown is URI's most played opponent in its basketball history. The series has not been competitive enough to be called a rivalry in its modern history, but only UConn, UMass, PC and St. Joes have beaten URI more times than Brown (53). Brown has played URI relatively tough in recent years - in 2016-17, in a game played at Brown, a shorthanded URI had to mount a furious comeback to win in OT. URI last lost to Brown during Jim Baron's miserable final season, falling 66-56 at the Pizzitola Center (a bookend of sorts - the previous time URI lost to Brown, also at the Pizzitola Center was during Baron's first season at URI in 2001-02). Brown has not won at URI since 1982-83, in the midst of one of the lowest periods in the program's history (URI went 42-97 (.302) between 1981-82 and 1985-86; this was sandwiched by two of the programs' high water marks in the late 70s and late 80s). Brown has never won at the Ryan Center.

I was disappointed to see that my favorite factoid for Brown basketball over the last few years has graduated and moved on, along with several other contributors to Brown's 16-17 team that finished 6th in the Ivy League. Without their leading scorer and famous golf sibling Steven Spieth, leading assist man Tavon Blackmon and dead-eye shooting specialist JR Hobbie returning from last season's squad, Brown has opened the season 4-2 behind their trio of young guards Brandon Anderson, Zach Hunsaker and Desmond Cambridge stepping into the void.

Those three guards have accounted for nearly 60% of the Bears' scoring in the early part of the season, averaging 20.8, 13.0 and 13.5, respectively. Of the three, only the sophomore Anderson has been a threat from the perimeter, hitting from three at 34.5%, but all three account for a big portion of the team's shots from the floor and all shoot around 40% overall from the floor. The freshman Cambridge is the best rebounder of the three, getting 4.5 boards per game, but all do rebound (Anderson and Hunsaker get 3.7 per game each).

The guards have been joined in the starting lineup by forwards Travis Fuller, a junior, and Tamenang Choh, a freshman from Lowell, MA who played at the Brooks School and was the 25th ranked player in Massachusetts according to NERR. In their last game, against Bryant, Choh played only 14 minutes and grabbed three rebounds with one assist and three turnovers without taking a single shot from the floor or the line. For the season, Choh has put up a line of 4.0/3.0/0.7 and at only 6-5 doesn't seem likely to pose a lot of problems for URI at this point in his career. Fuller, the other starting forward, does lead the team in rebounding at 6-9, grabbing 7.2 boards per game to go along with a workmanlike 8.7 points in just under 20 minutes per contest.

The first two guys off the bench are forwards Joshua Howard, a sophomore, who plays starter minutes (23.3) and makes solid contributions as a scorer (8.2) and rebounder (4.8); and freshman Matt DeWolf, a Barrington native who played at BHS before finishing at Northfield Mount Hermon, who is playing solid minutes for a frosh (13.7) and making his primary contribution on the glass (4.5) early in his career. The backup guards are an experienced group compared to the first string backcourt and their forward benchmates - juniors Obi Okolie and Chris Sullivan and senior Jason Massey all play 12 or 13 minutes on average and are good for about 11 points, a half dozen boards and a couple of assists between them. In Brown's 81-67 win at Bryant last week, the entire bench combined for just 10 pts and 4 assists, but did help on the glass with 14 rebounds.

Look, URI should win this game. RPI Forecast sees a 20+ point URI win, and if Vegas does a line for this game I would expect it to look much the same. This Brown game - by far the biggest mismatch on our schedule until we see Duquesne in late January - could not come at a better time for URI as it comes back from a highly competitive neutral site tournament over Thanksgiving and readies itself for the rivalry game against hated Providence this weekend. Nobody that is feeling so much as an ache should see the floor for Rhody, so I wouldn't expect to see the return of big man Cyril Langevine (although I've been wrong before). It shouldn't matter. URI needs to show up for this game, but really only so that it maintains some sharpness and so it can build a lead that will allow starters to rest and get needed minutes for rusty subs. Brown has some promising young players that could eventually make the Bears a bit more threatening in the next few years, but they're not there yet. I like Rhody to handle its business and win fairly easily.

On whether it's a trap game: We talked about it. We lost on Friday. We’re not coming off two great wins. We had a great win and for 25 minutes, we had a chance to win that game [against Virginia] and then we shot ourselves in the foot. We talked about what a trap game is and this doesn’t fit the definition of it for us, because we just lost. If we had won the championship, maybe it’s a trap game. But we’re 3-2 and they’re 4-2. There’s no reason for us to sleepwalk any game on our schedule.

There are a couple of interesting team stats when Brown has the ball.

First, look at the Turnover %. Brown ranks 259th in the country in Offensive Turnover % and we rank 29th in Defensive Turnover %. This is bad news for the Brown Bears. One key to our success in this game will be to turn them over at a high rate.

Also take a look at FTA/FTG or also known as Free Throw Rate. Brown does an excellent job getting to the free throw line. They currently are 17th in the country in this department. This is not good news for us as we are 334th in the country in Defensive Free Throw Rate.

Hopefully we will be able to turn them over at a high rate while staying out of foul trouble and keeping them off the line.

I would hope we can get a similar number as last year but who knows. I wonder if our 3-2 record could cause us to lose some casual fans for this game even though those two losses were against very good teams.

Last year’s Game was on Wednesday November 16 at 7pm. 5,630 attended. URI was 2-0 having beaten Dartmouth and Marist. School was in session.

This year the game is on Tuesday November 28 at 7pm or 12 days later into the College Basketball Season. School is again in full session.

URI comes in having won the 2017 A10 Tournament and their first NCAA win since Jim Harrick last century. Currently with a 3-2 record with a huge win over a Top 20 Team already. PC game at home this Saturday completely sold out with tickets selling at big markups on Stub Hub.

Season Ticket and Mini Plan Sales up over last year as would be expected based on performance.

Top ranked among all Mid Major Teams with an early signing of 4 Top Prospects.

Anything less than last years 5,630 would be a big disappointment to me and I’d expect also a disappointment to the players and Coaching Staff.
