Albiani’s Take

Positives: The Rhode Island women’s swimming and diving team meet on senior day was a fantastic performance. In addition to beating Bryant 180-119, they also had winners in 12 of the 16 events that were scored. They will look to build on that momentum as they train for the Atlantic...
  This past weekend the University of Rhode Island men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams took part in the John Thomas Terrier Classic, hosted by Boston University, Friday and Saturday, respectively. On the men’s side, sophomore Marlon Montague grabbed third in the 500-meter dash with fellow Ram and senior,...

Albiani’s Take

  Positives: The Rhode Island women’s track team had fantastic results in the Terrier Classic. Altogether, six top ten finishers and 17 athletes produced personal bests for URI. Of course, the standout performance was senior Mariah Claudio since she set the school record in the 500-meter, but 17 personal bests speaks...

Albiani’s Take

Positives: The Rhode Island men’s basketball team’s unexpected performance against Providence College really kept Rhode Island afloat and in position to a win a game against a good opponent. The unexpected production from sophomore Jarvis Garrett and freshman Christion Thompson really gave the team a huge boost with Thompson connecting...
On Saturday one of the most highly anticipated games of the year for Rhode Islanders took place as the Providence Friars visited the Thomas M. Ryan Center. Unfortunately for Rhody, this was yet another case of a resume building win slipping away, but this time in heart-breaking fashion as...

Albiani’s Take

Positives: The Rhode Island men’s basketball team’s win over Rider University was a great way to come back from an all-around ugly performance against the University of Maryland. Clearly Maryland is a superior team, but the alleged postgame remarks from head coach Dan Hurley don’t put the Rams in a...
  Going into the 2015-2016 season, the Atlantic 10 looks wide open at the top. There have been notable defections of players and coaches and a new crop of freshman and transfers are on their way to help. However after the top tier of teams, there is a steep drop-off...

Albiani’s take

Positives: The Rhode Island basketball team’s win over American was exactly how we predicted it with a decent offensive performance, but fantastic defensive performance. Transfer Four McGlynn’s four 3-pointers really stood out. The URI women’s volleyball team’s victory over VCU capped off a successful regular season as they  finished as...

Albiani’s Take

Positives: The Rhode Island basketball team’s exhibition win over the St. Thomas Aquinas was simply a tune-up for the team, but Rhode Island showed a more potent offensive arsenal, with newcomers Four McGlynn and Christion Thompson each hitting a pair of threes. The outside shot was a major weakness for...
