Around the Rim: Recapping the Latest Rhode Island Basketball News and Rumors

Around the Rim is a semi-regular piece at Rhody Rampage, recapping articles, interviews, and news regarding the Rams, the A-10, and the entire college sports landscape.

Normally the Around the Rim segment touches on a variety of different teams in several sports. But not tonight. There’s so much buzz around Rhody Rams basketball right now that that’s all we’ll talk about. So here goes:

  • The 2013-14 roster is now OFFICIAL! Check it out here. [GoRhody.com]
  • John Rothstein of CBS Sports was in Kingston this week to observe a URI hoops practice. Here’s what he saw. [CBS New York]
  • College Chalktalk’s Chris DiSano was in town for the same reason. He checked in with some observations as well. [College Chalktalk]
  • Rumors are abound regarding Rhody’s 2013-14 schedule. Bill Reynolds of the Providence Journal wrote the following in one of his recent columns: “The word is URI will play at Georgetown in basketball in the upcoming season.” And College Chalktalk’s Bill Koch tweeted this a few days ago.


  • It doesn’t seem that anything is official…yet. DiSano tweeted this a few weeks ago as well, and it still stands as far as we know.


That said, wheeeeee, URI basketball talk! The official schedule can’t come soon enough.
