Rhode Island Rams
Rhode Island is currently 6-5 in conference play. The Rams are averaging 71.8 points on the season and allowing 68.6 points on the other end. The Rams rank 99th according to KenPom in adjusted offensive efficiency and 33rd in adjusted defensive efficiency.
Fatts Russell is putting together another impressive season for the Rams. The guard leads the Rams with 14.5 points, with fellow senior guard Jordan Sheppard averaging 11.6 points.
Rhode Island is not afraid to attack the basket, drawing the 14th most fouls in the country. The Rams struggle with turnovers, however, and put together just 56 points in their last matchup against the Dayton Flyers.
Leading the way for VCU is third-team all-conference selection Nah’ Shon “Bones” Hyland. A 6’3 sophomore and legit NBA prospect, Hyland is averaging 18.9 PPG and has proven to be a great 3-point shooter. Hyland is knocking down just under 40 percent of his long range attempts. Vince Williams Jr., is the only other VCU player averaging double-figures with 10.6 PPG.
Hyland is coming off a 24 point performance for VCU in their 14-point victory against La Salle last time out.
On the season, VCU is averaging 74.3 PPG and 127th in adjusted defensive efficiency. Their defense on the other hand, ash been elite. The Rams are the 13rd best team in the country in adjusted defensive efficiency and are holding opponents to 65.1 PPG.
VCU forces the fifth most turnovers in the country, block the third most shots and allows opponents to shoot 30.1 percent from deep. VCU also leads the country in steals.
Rhode Island has been careless with the ball this year, which plays right into VCU’s favor. VCU does foul a lot, however, which is a bad trait to have against a Rhode Island team that reaches the line often.
- Rams are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
- Rams are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games.
- Rams are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Over is 6-2 in Rams last 8 overall.
Free Rhode Island Rams vs. VCU Rams NCAAB Prediction:
I believe VCU will get revenge in this spot and prevail. I also like the over in this game since both teams will be fouling frequently and it should be close.
