Rams Run Out

By David Scott - November 28, 2006

KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island began to assert itself in the final eight minutes of thehalf and with the help of some inspired bench play (12 points), lead 39-24 at the half.

The Rams went on a 13-2 run after the media timeout at 7:07, to extend to a 31-22 lead. A put back dunk by Joe Mbang led to a Jeff Ruland timeout just under four minutes, to stem the tide, but some dismal Gaels shooting added salt to the wound. Rhody wound up shooting .609 (14-for-23) in the first half; Iona shot .344 (11-for-32).

Will Daniels leads all scorers with 14 points and Rodriguez has six to pace the Gaels.

. . . The depleted Gaels are also encountering early foul trouble, with three each for Rodriguez and Marshall - something that could become a big factor in the second half.

. . .Rhode Island had four blocked shots to Iona's zero in the first half.
