In a nearly unanimous vote (27 of 28), the URI Men’s Basketball Team have been selected as the pre-season favorite to win the A-10 title. Leading the Rams this season will be All-Conference selections E.C. Matthews and Jared Terrell who are both in their senior year.
Are we calling it a repeat yet? Should we? Nah, too early… but this is still the best pre-season ranking URI has gotten in a long time, so we’ll take it. In fact, before last season, the last time Rhody won an A-10 Championship was in 1999 – shoutout Lamar Odom – which was before some URI students were even born.
There’s a lot of hype around this Rhody team so lets hope they stand up to the challenge. First game is November 10th vs UNC Asheville at the Ryan Center.
