Rhode Island Rams: Recapping the Top Rhody Stories From 2013

2013 was quite the exciting year for all Rhode Island Rams sports. From basketball to football to baseball and everything in between, we have a full recap of all the big stories of the year. Here’s what went down:


  • January 19th: The Rhode Island Rams scored their signature win of the 2012-13 season when they went to Saint Louis and topped the Billikens 82-80 in overtime.
  • January 29th: Dan Hurley “tried to provoke” Fordham coach Tom Pecora, according to the blog A Daly Dose of Hoops. Just one problem though – it never happened.


  • February 6th: National Signing Day saw URI football land a bunch of new players as the Rams tried to build an improved squad in 2013.


  • March 22nd: Merely making the dance was not enough, though. The A-10 started 6-0 as March Madness got underway.










  • December 21st: After losing his starting job and seeing a reduction in playing time, Mike Powell will transfer from the URI basketball team.

Looking back on it, 2013 certainly had it’s fair share of ups and downs. Here’s hoping that there’s much more in store for 2014 as all of URI’s “big three” sports are poised for improvement. GO RHODY!
