You’ve probably heard by now, but the crowd at the Ryan Center last night was absolutely electric. The 6,632 in attendance was the largest crowd at the Ryan Center this season, and in that mix was an amazing 2,891 students. Besides the fact that they comprised an astounding 43.6 percent of the total audience, the student attendance was the second most in Ryan Center history. For a 6-12 team? You’d better believe it. The buzz around this program is sky high right now, and anyone and everyone will tell you for certain: big things are coming.
Sadly, Rhody Rampage could not attend, but we could feel the electricity in the building just by watching and listening to the game. And the players, coaches, and staff felt it too. Just check out some of the tweets following the game:

Rhody’s next home game is Saturday, February 9th against St. Bonaventure, and we’ll be in attendance. If the atmosphere is anything like it was last night, it should be a blast. GO RHODY!
