Excitement level: High. And rising.
The Atlantic 10 released Rhody’s 2014-15 conference schedule this afternoon, complete with dates, times, and (in some cases) television info. Also good news, especially for prospective ticket buyers: all but one of URI’s home games has a start time attached, meaning you can start planning your winters now. The VCU game on January 13 is the only exception there. That game is slated to be televised nationally, so that’s likely the hang-up.
Speaking of TV, the Rams will make eight national television appearances in A-10 play, with three of them coming at the Ryan Center. The Cox Sports television portion of the schedule has yet to be announced, but eight TV spots before Rhody’s media partner comes into the mix? Can’t hate that.
Rhode Island will open conference play on the road against Saint Louis in the first of the nationally broadcast games. Aside from the Billikens and the aforementioned VCU, Rhody will also be in the national spotlight versus Fordham (home), UMass (both home and away), Richmond, La Salle (away), and Dayton.
