Rhode Island Rams Preview

Rhode Island fell to 11-17 after losing to Richmond in Kingston, 85-77. The Rams were unable to maintain their halftime lead versus the Spiders, and they’ll look to prevent a fourth straight loss here in Philly. Rhode Island is currently 10th in the A-10 with a 5-8 record in league play, they’re 2-8 over their last ten games, and they’ve posted a 2-6 road record this season. Rhode Island will take on VCU after this one.

  • Richmond native Jaden House has hit the 22-point mark in two of the last four games, and he leads URI in scoring (15.2).  
  • Junior forward David Green led the way with 20 points in the February 1st win over La Salle, and he’s second on the team at 13.3 ppg and 4.5 rpg. 
  • Freshman forward David Fuchs posted a 23-point double-double in the Richmond defeat, and he leads Rhode Island in rebounding (6.9).

Rhode Island vs La Salle Prediction

La Salle enters this contest on the heels of a strong win over St. Bonaventure, and with revenge in mind this Sunday, I believe that momentum carries into their rematch with Rhode Island. The Explorers lost to the Rams by two in Kingston last month, and with this leg taking play in Philly, we should see a motivated effort from the hosts. Back the traditional win by two for La Salle in this Atlantic 10 matchup.
