URI vs. La Salle men's basketball: How to watch and listen to the Rams game

·2 min read

Can the University of Rhode Island men's basketball team push its Atlantic-10 Conference winning streak to three straight games?

La Salle stands in the way of that goal as the Explorers travel to South Kingstown for a midweek matchup.

After dropping its A-10 opener at Davidson, URI (11-4 overall, 2-1 Atlantic 10) has reeled off back-to-back wins, besting St. Joe's 75-64 at home and running away from UMass 81-68 Saturday in Amherst.

The Rams owned the paint against UMass, outscoring the Minutemen 46-8 inside. UMass shot just 7-for-32 from 2-point range and did the majority of its scoring from beyond the 3-point arc.
