Hokies Send Rams To Second Straight Loss

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

 

They're only two games into the season, but the URI Rams are struggling to put the ball in the basket.

After connecting on just 28% (15-53) of their field goal attempts in their opening night loss to Norfolk State, Rhode Island managed to hit only 34% (20-59) from the field in Blacksburg Monday night.  As a result, the Rams fell to Virginia Tech 69-50.

URI struggled mightily from beyond the arc shooting just 5% (1-21) from three point land.  They also struggled at the free throw line again shooting 56% (9-16).

The game was close for most of the first half until the Hokies ended the half on an 8-0 run to take a 36-24 lead at the break.  They would never be threatened from that point on as Rhody could only manage to pull to within 11 in the second half.

Junior college transfer and former St. Benedict's (NJ) star Xavier Munford led the Rams with a career-best 24 points despite going just (1-9) from three point range.  Inside the arc, Munford went (10-13).  Andre Malone's 7 points were the second most scored by any URI player.

The Hokies were paced by Erick Green's 25 points.

With the win, Virginia Tech improved to (2-0) on the season while Rhode Island fell to (0-2).

It doesn't get any easier for the Rams who will face their stiffest test of the season on Saturday when they play the 4th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes at the Mohegan Sun Arena at 5pm.
