Roster: https://gorhody.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster
Stats: https://gorhody.com/documents/2023/12/2/2023-24_Combined.pdf

Rhode Island is led by 6’7” David Green (12.4 ppg & 5.0 reb), 6’4” Jaden House (14.9 ppg), 6’6” Zek Montgomery (10.3 ppg), and 6’3” Luis Kortright (10.6 ppg). 6’3” Cam Estevez (8.1 ppg), 6’9” David Fuchs (7.6 ppg), 6’9” Tyson Brown (4.0 ppg), and 6’3” Always Wright (2.2 ppg) have started for the Rams at various points this season. Love the name Always Wright. LOL. They have NO SENIORS on the roster. 10 freshmen and sophs though.

Rhode Island averages 72.9 points per game while giving up 75.3. The Rams shoot 46.82% from the floor and 35.6% from 3. Opponents are shooting 44.7% from the field and 36.7% from 3. The Rams shoot 62.6% from the free throw line. They have out rebounded opponents to the tune of 4.9 boards per game. They average 13.3 turnovers per contest.

My prediction: A rowdy Homecoming crowd cheers the Patriots on to a 75-68 win.

Discuss.

Rhode Island has been creamed in their last two games. Hopefully Mason can crush them as well and put on a homecoming clinic.

Back on the bandwagon after a solid win against the Bonnies. NO WAY we lose at home against RI.

Resurgent Pats - 80
Rhode hard and put away wet - 62

Weather looks to be in the 50s and sunny for Saturday, so looks like great weather to check out the tailgate. Come trash talk me in person, lol.

Looking forward to engaging with many of you in person. I will not be sitting in 115 this time (sorry @Patriotsince81 and @tblack33 ) but I will be in 118.

I'm starting at Oh George, then hitting the parking lot, then going to the Gold Room. I'll keep an eye out. Hope to see you.

118 is a good section to be in. Ronnie's grandma sits in 118 as well as some of the other player's relatives/friends.
