No. 25 Rhode Island, Davidson to play for A-10 title

No. 25 Rhode Island, Davidson to play for A-10 title

It looked unlikely for the first 33 minutes on Saturday, but the Rams provided a stubborn display against an opponent that had humiliated them at the Ryan Center less than two weeks ago.

The Rhode Island Rams ran into their locker room Saturday, cutting through a hallway from the court at the Capital One Arena.

URI's Fatts Russell went to the free throw line and made one of two shots to cut the Rams deficit to two, 32-30, with 2:10 left to play. In 35 minutes, Newkirk added 18 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals with 1 turnovers. Defensively, Rhode Island yields 68.2 points per game against the opposing teams.

"Disappointing result there", Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley said. Ruthie Polinsky will be in Washington, D.C. where the Rams are in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. Saint Joseph's appeared poised to deliver another upset while trying to extend its season, building an 11-point lead early in the second half. "That's pretty good", Hawks coach Phil Martelli said. Shavar Newkirk led Saint Joseph's' team in scoring with 18 points, while shooting 50% from the field (making 7 of 14 attempts).

Will a red-hot Davidson team keep rolling this afternoon when the Wildcats take on No. 25 Rhode Island in the Atlantic 10 title game? The Wildcats had a four-game losing streak going in February, but since have won seven of their last eight games on their way to a conference tournament title.

Rhode Island: The Rams will meet either second-seeded St. Bonaventure or third-seeded Davidson in Sunday's title game.

"But what we talked about is what it felt like on Sunday past year (in the title game), you know, landing (at the airport in Rhode Island) and having hundreds of fans".

Among them: A baseline jumper by Stanford Robinson missed, but Grady stepped out with 10.8 seconds remaining while grabbing the rebound. The game was within reach by halftime as Saint Joseph's was ahead by 7 points, 47-40.
