UMass Dominates URI

Thursday, February 07, 2013

 

There have been two constants for the URI men's basketball team this year.  They have failed to shoot the ball well offensively but have managed to play solid defense more often than not.

Unfortunately for the Rams, they did continue their trend of poor shooting but did not bring it on the defensive end of the floor Wednesday night which led to an 81-53 loss to the UMass Minutemen.

With less than 7 minutes to play in the first half, the game was tied at 21.  However, UMass closed the half on a 20-10 run to take a 41-31 lead at the break.

To make matters worse, Rhode Island started the second half poorly watching the Minutemen score the first 10 points of the second half allowing UMass to blow the game wide open at 51-31.

The Rams could not battle their way back into the game from that point on as UMass cruised to the 28-point win.

Rhody was led by Xavier Munford's 22 pooints.  For the game, URI shot 33% (18-54) from the field, 23% (7-30) from three and 83% (10-12) from the free throw line.

Chaz Williams had 27 for UMass which shot 52% (28-54) from the field, 47% (9-19) from three and 76% (16-21) from the line.

The Minutemen also outrebounded the Rams 33-24.

The loss was URI's fifth straight dropping the Rams to (6-15) overall and (1-7) in the Atlantic Ten.

Rhody hosts St. Bonaventure at the Ryan Center Saturday at 2pm.
