Rhode Island Basketball: Highlights From E.C. Matthews' 2012-13 Season [VIDEO]

So what is there, roughly five months until the Rhode Island Rams men’s basketball season begins? How’s everyone hanging in? The Italy trip is coming up in two months and the 2013-14 schedule should be out relatively soon, so that’s something. But if you’re as antsy as us for real, actual basketball action, there’s not much to do other than sit and wait. Or hit up YouTube.

There’s little doubt that E.C. Matthews is one of the most highly-anticipated Rhody recruits in some time. And URI fans are dying to see what he can do in the Keaney Blue uniform. But for now, they’ll just have to settle for his Romulus High School 2012-13 highlight video. Check it out:

Sure, he’s going to be facing tougher competition in D-I, but how cannot you not like what you see here? He can score off the dribble, he can drive, or he can pull up and bury a three. Also, how impressive is his body control when creating his own shot? This guy is a straight up athlete, one who can be a star for the Rams right away.

Oh, and if you’re curious about the soundtrack to the video, here it is in order:

J. Cole – Head Bussa
J. Cole feat. Bas – Cousins
Wale feat. Meek Mill and Rick Ross – Ambition

That’s right. The third track is called “Ambition”. Now excuse us, we have to go watch that video a couple dozen more times.
