The University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team will look for its first Atlantic 10 win of the year Saturday, as the Rams host Charlotte at 2 p.m. at the Ryan Center.
URI (5-9, 0-1 Atlantic 10) took Richmond to the wire in its first Atlantic 10 conference game of the year. The Rams trailed by 18 with 5:17 left in the game, but went on a 17-0 run before finally losing 64-61.
The game is the conference home opener for URI. It’s televised on COX Cable’s OSN (Ch. 5 or 1005), and the radio broadcast is on WHJJ 920 AM and The Wolf 102.3 FM.
Following the game, kids 12 and under will be able to dribble full court at the Ryan Center and take a shot, as part of the “Shoot Like A Ram” promotion.
We will be live blogging from the game shortly before 2 p.m., and after the game, we’ll have video of the post-game press conference and a game story.
