Bracketology 2018: Davidson wins the A 10 title, ruining someone's NCAA dreams

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

"The drama of Sunday: One team is the biggest Rhode Island fan in the world tomorrow".

But with Grady forcing E.C. Matthews, who led Rhode Island with 20 points and eight rebounds, to his left, the Rams senior gave up the ball. "We were fighting for our lives on the bubble coming in, but we were on a run".

Sparked off the bench by Fatts Russell and guided to the finish by Jeff Dowtin, the Rams overcame the determined Hawks, 90-87, at Capital One Arena. Ruthie Polinsky will be in Washington, D.C. where the Rams are in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. The Rams were 14-for-31 on 3-pointers on Saturday, a season high in makes, and URI handed out 22 assists against just five turnovers.

"Let's go! Let's go!" shouted one player after the Rams came back from a seven-point deficit to beat No. 4 seed Saint Joseph's 90-87 in the Atlantic 10 Conference championship tournament.

"We've been in the gym a lot lately", Dowtin said. Saint Joseph's appeared poised to deliver another upset while trying to extend its season, building an 11-point lead early in the second half.

"We won and we're going dancin' and I couldn't be happier for my guys and for everybody", said Reigel, fiddling with a piece of the net he'd just helped cut down. The sophomore point guard didn't commit a turnover in 32 minutes, his ninth error-free game of the season.

Cyril Langevine gave Rhode Island its first lead at 73-71 when he completed a 3-point play with 6:16 remaining.

Davidson: Needed this victory for an NCAA bid, given that it entered the A-10 tourney with an RPI of 74, a 108th ranking in strength of schedule and a 3-6 record against Quadrant 1 teams. "We want to experience that again and force (Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette) McGlade to hand us a third straight trophy". Davidson rallied down the stretch to down the Rams, 63-61, in the regular-season finale on March 2. I mean, that's an exciting feeling.
