Coach Dan Hurley talked to CBS about slowing Trae Young: "Just got to be able to mix up your ball screen coverages, throw different types of defenders at him, throw different types of looks".
Cyril Langevine gave Rhode Island its first lead, 73-71, when he completed a 3-point play with 6:16 remaining.
Rhode Island: A conference championship would have been nice, of course, but a trip to the NCAAs was going to happen, anyway. The sophomore point guard didn't commit a turnover in 32 minutes, his ninth error-free game of the season. After Newkirk tied it with a basket on the next possession, Russell connected on a 3 to give the Rams the lead for good. Dowtin added an insurance 3 with 19.3 seconds left to put the Rams up 87-81.
Key to the comeback was Rhode Island's offensive rebounding. This will be the first matchup ever between the Sooners and Rams.
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. That's just silly, that a guy would take away a kid's chance to fire up a half-court shot. The Wildcats had a four-game losing streak going in February, but since have won seven of their last eight games on their way to a conference tournament title.
Over on the Kentucky side, they're sitting at 24-10 on the year. Davidson rallied down the stretch to down the Rams, 63-61, in the regular-season finale on March 2.
Davidson did manage a victory, beating Rhode Island 68-67 on Sunday. The game was within reach by halftime as Saint Joseph's was ahead by 7 points, 47-40.
"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".
