On December 6th in their own building, the Friars beat the Rams, 72-57.

A couple key stats coming into the game: The Friars are very hard to beat on their own court, and the Rams weren't so hot coming in (2 for 5). Last year, Providence beat Rhode Island 80-61. Going back four years, the Friars are 4-1 against the Rams including 3-0 at Dunkin' Donuts Center. Since 1980, Providence is on top, 22-11.

The game came down to a big separation in offensive rebounding and a somewhat smaller advantage in turnover margin. Providence hit the glass harder than Rhode Island, 14 offensive rebounds to seven, and that led to more second-chance shots. The Friars managed the ball very well, only turning it over 16 times.

Kadeem Batts led the Friars against the Rams with 23 points on 42% shooting in 39 minutes. LaDontae Henton added 17 big rebounds. The Friars are now 7-2 and they look good early in the season. They've also won 5 in a row.

Next up is Colgate at home on December 18th.
