Rams on the rise

Basketball Jones With Oregon and Xavier losing this week, it’s lookin like there’s a damn good chance the URI men’s basketball team will make the ESPN/USA Today top 25 today for the first time in, like, a while. (Not sure how long exactly, but no NCAA tourney since 1999.) The 11-1 Rams have already beaten four teams from the Big East and ACC, and look like they have potential to rock the A-10 in the vein of George Washington from a couple of years back. Pretty exciting, and doubley so, since the team of my childhood is the pits.I could say all kindsa snarky stuff about the namesake of URI’s home court, the Ryan Center — say, about his relationship to some of the pols who’ve gone down in Operation Dollar Bill, or his advocacy for the capital gains tax cut that’s helping to drive the state’s budget crunch, or CVS’s frequently shoddy treatment of service workers at its Woonsocket HQ. But I’ve got a little too much Christmas cheer inside of me.
