The “X-man” Delivers As URI Beats Dayton

Thursday, February 14, 2013


When Dayton's Kevin Dillard drained a three with :09 seconds to play in regulation to tie the game at 72-72, all of the air came out of the Ryan Center.

The rebuilding Rhody Rams had led for almost the enitre second half but couldn't hang on to that lead in the game's final minute.

An exhasperated Dan Hurley rolled his eyes as Dillard's shot went through the basket as if to say, "what's it going to take to win one of these games?"

Enter Xavier Munford.

Following a timeout, Munford calmly drained a three with :03 seconds left lifting URI to a much needed 75-72 win.

Munford led all scorers with 18 points.  Nikola Malesevic (13), Mike Aaman (11) and Mike Powell (10) also finished in double figures.

It was one of Rhode Island's better offensive performances as the Rams shot 50% (28-56) from the field and 46% (10-22) from three.  

It was a much-needed and well-deserved win for Rhody (7-16, 2-8 A-10).

The Rams travel to Pittsburgh to battle A-10 cellar-dwellar Duquesne Saturday night at 7pm.
