Rhode Island has to figure out what went wrong in the last game as the Rams ended up losing to the UMass squad giving the Minutemen their first win in conference play this year. Now the Rams will have to look to the defense to come back together after the loss and that is definitely something the Rams need to work on as that is the part of the game that failed Rhode Island.

The Dukes have been able to play really well on the year and that is going to help the Dukes in getting some great wins on the year and that is definitely going to help the Dukes in this game here. The downside is the Dukes will be looking to bounce back from the loss that recently ended their five game winning streak and that is definitely something the Dukes will not want to follow up with a losing streak and all it will take is the defense to show up decent in the game to help bring them back on the winning path.

The Rams are 3-4 on the road, but the Rams are going to face the Dukes who have only dropped 2 games all season on their home court and that is definitely going to make it easier for the Dukes to play a great game here. Not to mention the Dukes have a better offense heading into this game and will want to show the last loss to VCU was not going to start a losing streak.
