What to Know

Rhode Island and the Minutemen are an even 5-5 against one another since March of 2019, but not for long. Both teams will face off in an Atlantic 10 battle at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday at Mullins Center. Massachusetts took a loss in their last contest and will be looking to turn the tables on Rhode Island, who comes in off a win.

Rhode Island’s and the Colonials’ match on Tuesday was close at halftime, but the Rams turned on the heat in the second half with 53 points. The Rams blew past the Colonials 88-65.

Zek Montgomery was the offensive standout of the match as he scored 30 points along with five rebounds and two steals. As a matter of fact, that’s the most points he has scored all season. The team also got some help courtesy of Jaden House, who scored 23 points.

Meanwhile, the Minutemen came up short against the Bonnies on Wednesday and fell 79-73. Massachusetts got off to an early lead (up 13 with 5:42 left in the first quarter), but sadly they weren’t able to maintain that momentum.

Even though the team lost, they still had their share of impressive performances. One of the best came from Matt Cross, who scored 19 points along with six rebounds and five assists. He didn’t help Massachusetts’ cause all that much against the Patriots on Saturday but the same can’t be said for this matchup. Keon Thompson was another key contributor, scoring 16 points along with seven rebounds.

The Rams’ victory ended a three-game drought on the road and puts them at 11-12. As for the Minutemen, their loss dropped their record down to 14-8.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: Rhode Island have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 38.1 rebounds per game. However, it’s not like Massachusetts struggles in that department as they’ve been averaging 38.7 rebounds per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

Rhode Island was able to grind out a solid victory over the Minutemen in their previous meeting back in January, winning 89-77. The rematch might be a little tougher for Rhode Island since the team won’t have the home-court advantage this time around. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
