Everybody is This is the sports dish on sportscast.
They're just gonna do some postgame here for you guys.
The the Rhode Island Rams took on a number seven team in the nation in college basketball tonight.
That would be the Maryland Terrapins.
And that came unfortunately for Red Island.
They fell into the hands of the Terrapins, and this 1 73 55 was the final.
So they put against a very big ranked team that did make it into the tournament to the second round last season.
The Maryland Terrapins without the end, the Terrapins just way too strong in the battle tonight on the court, as unfortunately for your eye, they lost this battle.
So the game was close, though through the first half, the game was pretty close, but the second half you arises could not hit a shot there.
Maryland just kept on pulling in, pulling away.
When they took control of it in the second half, Rhode Island just kept on jacking up shots that wouldn't even come close to being into the net, left and right, that they were just complete breaks into this game.
But we'll go through what happened here so early on.
Rhode Island's got off to a great start.
They shot the ball early on in Game three for five from downtown Rhode Island.
Look great early on.
They let it 24 to 12 with a 12 point lead at one point with eight minutes in 18 seconds left to go in the first half. But then Maryland.
That's when they stormed back.
That's when the Terps ended the first half on the 19.
The six run the goingto halftime up with a 35 to 32 lead in for Maryland to go up at halftime.
The second half, though, for Rhode Island's, they did hit a three pointer to tie up the game at 35 but nevertheless, there it was all Maryland after that down the stretch, Rhode Island was just overpowered over shot in this game throughout the second half, one of the problems in this game for Rhode Island had to be the three point shooting.
They started out the game three for five from downtown.
They ended the game four for 18 after that, for a grand total of seven, made three point shots out of 23 attempts that's only good for about 30% from three point range to the shooting.
Problems existed big time for divert Island Rams during this game that just wrapped up about 1/2 an hour ago.
Shooting problems Indeed, as they shot the ball only a 30% from the floor in there first giving his Long Island, they shot the boy I believe around like the high thirties, 38% from the floor against Long Island.
In their first game on Tuesday, We welcome and Angie J.
Zero Jay Z er, thanks so much for joining me once again on the SportsCastr Stream.
So one of the big things for the Rams they will really need to get better on this season for Rhode Island is the three point shooting last season.
It was a nightmare for them.
They shocked about 28% from the three point line that was tied for the worst in college basketball last year alongside, with Jackson steep being the worst along with him but one positive takeaway from the Rhode Island Rams in this game, it had to be the rebounding advantage on the offensive rebounding boards.
There are plus nine on the offensive boards against the Maryland Terrapins.
Of course, Rhode Island did keep the game close in the first half, but you do have to play all 40 minutes.
Year of college basketball in the second half, though unfortunately, did not go the correct direction for the Rams tonight.
They were a problem as well for Rhode Island.
Big Big problem.
He shot the ball eight for 16 at the free throw line.
That is something that they will need to get better at.
They should not be shooting the ball in the game like this.
At 50% from the line.
Free throws are a killer there, and there are a bunch of points off the board, eight of them at the line today.
Other things that happened here.
We'll take a look at the stat lines from this game.
Here sit Cyril Lajic.
Land divine For Caroline telegrams.
He had 17 rebounds as now, Cyril lands around this season as 32 rebounds total.
He's averaging 16 rebounds per game.
That is in the top five at the moment.
In college basketball, so does through the 1st 2 games that sees against Ally you.
He had 15 boards this game against Maryland. What is impressive.
A top 10 team in all of college basketball, yet 17 rebounds.
I've Rhode Island only had two double digits scores in this game.
Jeff Dowd and led all scorers with 14 points, Germany and terrorist right behind them.
Scoring a team tonight with 10 points on the other side from Maryland in this game.
Jail and Smith took over, and Anthony Wiggins was also a big, big player in this game for Maryland.
As those two players, Smith and Wiggins, really showed why Maryland? Maryland is a top 10 team this season.
Jail and Smith had a double double, 19 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in this game.
Anthony Wiggins, along with him double double as well for the Terps, says he had 13 points in 13 rebounds.
Next up for both of these teams.
Rhode Island will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Friday, November 15th.
Alabama just lost earlier this week against the University of Pen, the Pen Quakers by one point, the buzzer beating on the 80 while Maryland will take on Oakland University on Saturday, November 16.
