Davidson tops No. 25 Rhode Island for A-10 title

Davidson tops No. 25 Rhode Island for A-10 title

URI's Dowtin earned a spot on the all-tournament team alongside Aldridge, Grady, VCU's Justin Tillman, and St. Bonaventure's Matt Mobley.

"But what we talked about is what it felt like on Sunday past year (in the title game), you know, landing (at the airport in Rhode Island) and having hundreds of fans".

Peyton Aldridge lead Davidson with 13 points and seven rebounds.

The URI men's basketball team lost the A-10 Championship game 58-57 to third-seeded Davidson on Sunday afternoon in Washington D.C.

No. 1 seed Rhode Island won the regular-season title and upset Creighton in the NCAA Tournament before falling to OR last season.

The halftime score is not good news for these bubble teams. Hopefully it helps us tomorrow.

"We're fighting every chance we get", Aldridge said in a postgame interview on CBS.

With Davidson's win, the bubble just got smaller for the final teams anxiously awaiting the Selection Sunday show.

Current freshman guard Grady of Davidson is a huge fan of Curry and that was a major reason that he enrolled at the tiny private school near Charlotte. The Wildcats responded with four straight points, grabbing a one-point edge on Kellan Grady's floater with 1:14 left. Defensively, Rhode Island yields 68.2 points per game against the opposing teams.

"I think so, but obviously we won't know until he goes through his pregame warmup", said Gentry. He has been particularly impressive since the All-Star break, putting together three 40-point performances, including a 53-point, 18-rebound outburst in the Pelicans' victory over the Phoenix Suns on February 26.

The Rams trailed by seven points with under six minutes remaining before they suddenly emerged from their slumber and took advantage of the Wildcats missing 11 consecutive field-goal attempts.

Following a timeout, Stanford Robinson's jump shot from the corner rimmed out and went out of bounds off of a Davidson player to give the Rams the ball back with ten seconds to play.

Rhode Island will now wait to find out their NCAA Tournament seed and opponent when the bracket is revealed on Sunday night. Davidson rallied down the stretch to down the Rams, 63-61, in the regular-season finale on March 2.

It's Rhode Island 33, Davidson 32 after 20 minutes of play. "I saw an opening and took a shot". A Davidson win knocks them out.
