Rhode Island won Saturday's game by a small margin of victory, 90-87, against Saint Joseph's.

"Disappointing result there", Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley said. We want to experience that again.

Rhode Island: A conference championship would have been nice, of course, but a trip to the NCAAs was going to happen, anyway.

Dowtin is from Upper Marlboro, Md., and played at St. John's College High in Washington, D.C. And this just a taste of what's to come now that March Madness is upon us.

On the season, Davidson averages 77.0 points, 32.8 rebounds and 17.1 assists per game. Saint Joseph's piled up 47 points by halftime (the most in the opening 20 minutes against the Rams this season) to lead by seven, and still nursed a 70-65 lead on Nick Robinson's layup with 8:43 left.

"I have not even thought about that at this point".

New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry says that he is confident that superstar big man Anthony Davis will play on Sunday against the Utah Jazz, according to the team. "Our seniors mean a lot to us, so we took that kind of personal".

Nearly 10 years ago back in the 2008 tournament, a sophomore Curry led a Cinderella 10-seed Wildcats team to victories over No. 7 Gonzaga, No. 2 Georgetown, and No. 3 Wisconsin to make it all the way to the Elite 8.

The Rams never trailed in the final 5:42, jumping ahead for good when Russell knocked down a 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 76-73.

Russell had another 3 with 4:29 to go, and Jared Terrell added a 3 off an offensive rebound and kickout on the Rams' next possession to make it 82-75. Jeff Dowtin wound up trying a 3-pointer that missed.

Rhode Island: As the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region, plays 10th-seeded Oklahoma (18-13) and freshman sensation Trae Young at Pittsburgh on Thursday.

"The last three years we got to the semifinals and were unable to pull it out", Aldridge said. This will be Lipscomb's first ever tournament appearance. The last one's just silly. "I saw an opening and took a shot".

Rhode Island: After dropping three of their last five regular-season games, the Rams manufactured tight victories over VCU and Saint Joseph's to reach their second consecutive Atlantic 10 title game.

Over on the Kentucky side, they're sitting at 24-10 on the year. After he made that, Rhode Island had its chances to retake the lead.
