The Rhode Island Rams take to the road to battle the Bonnies of St. Bonaventure in an A-10 matchup on Tuesday night.
Rhode Island Rams
Following a win over La Salle on January 19th, Rhode Island had the look of a team that was going to make some noise in the A-10 with an impressive 12-4 record. Since that victory, the Rams have lost 8 of 9 games to fall to 13-12 overall and just 4-9 in the A-10. The fall was both swift and surprising and has left the Rams to try and salvage their season with some closing regular season victories and perhaps an upset win or two in the A-10 tournament.
A slow start on Saturday afternoon at George Washington sealed the fate of the Rams. By halftime, the Rams were trailing 44-30 and George Washington never looked back to win 72-61.. The closest Rhode Island would come was during a 10-3 opening run in the second half to get to within 7 points. Rhode Island went just 8-of-18 from the free throw line and were outscored 33-9 from the 3pt line after shooting just 3/14 from deep.
Rhode Island is scoring over 67 points per game and, despite its rough stretch, is still outscoring teams by over 3 points per game. They are shooting at 46% and holding their opponents to just 38% shooting this season. They have been sloppy with the basketball, however, turning it over 14+ times per game.
St. Bonaventure Bonnies
St. Bonaventure jumped out to a 8-3 start during non-conference play, picking up victories over Marquette, Boise State and Clemson along the way. They’ve struggled with inconsistency while flirting with promise along the way this season.
The Bonnies are playing their best basketball of the season at the perfect time. St. Bonaventure hopes they can maintain the momentum of this 5-game win streak right through the rest of the regular season and into the A-10 tournament.
On Saturday, the Bonnies win streak reached 5 games with perhaps their most dominant performance, an 81-55 win over Duquesne. With the win, the Bonnies moved to 17-7 overall and 11-4 in A-10 play.
Senior center Osun Osunniyi was the story against the Dukes. Osunniyi followed up his dominant double-double in the first win over Duquesne, 21 points and 17 rebounds, with another double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds.

4* Free Rhode Island vs. St. Bonaventure CBB Betting Prediction: St. Bonaventure ATS
This is the classic matchup of two teams truly going in opposite directions heading into this matchup. Rhode Island had built up a strong early season resume before the wheels came off on its season and now face a St. Bonaventure team that is playing as good as any team in the conference right now.
Offensively and defensively, the Bonnies are improving in recent games. They are scoring 6 more points per game over the win streak than they have averaged this season and have given up 5 less points to the opposition over that same time span.
I expect St. Bonaventure to take full advantage of the flailing Rams and pick up a comfortable and much needed win as the season comes to an end.
Take the Bonnies at home.
