(1.2) The Brown Bears (5-6) will host the URI Rams (8-3) tonight, Thursday, at the Pizzitola Center on Hope Street. Last year the Rams upset the favored Bears 71-51. This year it is the Rams who are favored. Bill Koch writes in the ProJo:
Brown will need to secure its league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament while URI still carries realistic hopes of securing an at-large berth.
The Rams have won seven straight in the series and 29 of the last 32.
Koch has the stats and scouting report. Go here for tickets.
[Brown wins 85-75. ProJo recap.]
