Atlantic 10 Title Prediction: Will Davidson Upset Rhode Island? 3/11/18

No. 25 URI 90, Saint Joseph's 87: Rams advance to second straight conference title game | VIDEO

Who Oddsmakers Like: According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Rams are 2-point favorites to beat the Wildcats, who also opened at many online books as a 2.5-point underdog.

Peyton Aldridge lead Davidson with 13 points and seven rebounds.

Since starting the season 10-9, Davidson has gone 10-2, with its only losses at Rhode Island, and in triple-overtime to St. Bonaventure. "In every huddle we looked in their eyes and it just felt like it was a matter of time before we were going to walk them down, get the lead and win a close game late".

Defensively, Rhode Island yields 68.2 points per game against the opposing teams.

Saint Joseph's wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 6 points from turnovers, compared to Rhode Island's 14. "We played great offense today".

Shavar Newkirk led the Hawks with 18 points. After scoring 7 consecutive points, Saint Joseph's led 51-40. Cyril Langevine leads in rebounds with 6.0 while Dowtin tops in assists with 5.5 per game. After St. Joe's tied the score on its next trip, Russell buried a 3-pointer with 5:42 to put URI in front for good. "One of our goals was to win the regular season and win the tournament".

URI's Fatts Russell went to the free throw line and made one of two shots to cut the Rams deficit to two, 32-30, with 2:10 left to play. That's not the case this year, but they want it just as much. "We've accomplished something, but we feel like we could do a lot more". I mean, that's an exciting feeling.

On Sunday, Davidson eked out a one-point win over Rhode Island to win its first-ever Atlantic-10 championship, and one former Davidson star was super excited about it. Stephen Curry was watching from home as he rehabs his tweaked ankle, and he took to social media to express his joy. We feel like this team is better than the team past year.
