Hawks Soar Past URI 81-44

Thursday, March 07, 2013

 

Despite URI's low win total (8), the one thing that can be said about the Rams is that they have been in most of their games to the very end.  Wednesday's game at St. Joe's was not one of those games.  The Hawks beat Rhody 81-44.

Trailing 8-6 with less than 13 minutes to play in the first half, the Hawks put the pedal to the medal while the Rams went stone cold from the floor.  The result was a 33-12 run to finish the half to blow the game wide open at 39-20.

C.J. Aiken socre 10 of his game-high 15 points during that stretch to help the home team take control.

It was "Senior Night" on Hawk Hill.  Carl Jones, Taylor Trevisan and Christopher Coyne were all honored prior to the game.

The Hawks shot a sizzling 58% (15-26) from the field in the first half while Rhody struggled to make just 27% (8-30) in the first half including 0-7 from three-point range.

For the game, URI managed to shoot just 29% (18-62) from the field and 5% (1-20) from three.

Seniors Andre Malone (10 points) and Nikola Malesevic (10 points) led URI.  Freshman forward Mike Aaman continued his aolid play with 8 points and 9 rebounds.

The loss drops URI's overall record to (8-20) overall and (3-12) in the Atlantic Ten.  It also will prevent the Rams for reaching double figures in wins this season with only one game remaining.  St. Joe's improves to (17-11, 8-7).

Saturday will be "Senior Day" at the Ryan Center when the Rams wrap up the 2012-2013 campaign against UMass at 2pm.
