The Fast and The Furious

KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island opened with two straight 3-pointers to spring out to a 6-0 lead. It’s the second straight game in which Rhody has opened with back-to-back threes.

Rhody proceeded to hit its first four threes (two for Will Daniels), taking a 14-6 lead and forced Utah to call a timeout with 16:24 left in the half. Both teams were perfect form the field (8-8) through the games first four minutes.

. . . Utah started off in a man-to-man defense while Rhody is going two-three.

. . . Checking through the Utah media guide, it appears that this is Utah’s first trip to the East Coast since the 2003-04 pre-season NIT in New York City and we couldn’t find much else east of the Mississippi. A rare visit, indeed.

. . . Rhody Ram got his own introduction following that of the players and the song he was introduced to was Chumbawamba’s “Tub Thumping.” I get knocked down, but I get up again. Well done, Rhody. Very well done.

. . . URI’s Jon Lucky, who has been playing on a broken ankle, will not play today after starting the first eight games of the year. This is his second straight miss.
