BC-BKC-T25-A10-Saint Joseph's-Rhode Island, 348 No. 25 Rhode Island rallies vs. Saint Joseph's in A10 semisAP Photo VZN108, VZN104, VZN112, VZN106, VZN110, VZN109Eds: APNewsNow. The Rams are the first No. 1 seed in the Atlantic 10 to reach the conference championship game since Saint Louis in 2013. The sophomore point guard didn't commit a turnover in 32 minutes, his ninth error-free game of the season.

The Wildcats have covered the spread in five of their last six games overall, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games when playing a team with a winning record, and have cashed in eight of their last 12 games following an ATS win (with one push mixed in). Ruthie Polinsky will be in Washington, D.C. where the Rams are in the Atlantic 10 Tournament.

"We have championship culture, championship DNA, and we showed it today", URI coach Dan Hurley said. Saint Joseph's appeared poised to deliver another upset while trying to extend its injury-riddled season.

Who We Like: Davidson's motion offense is rolling right now and the Wildcats' 2-3 zone gave the Rams' fits earlier this season.

URI was led by E.C. Matthews, who poured in 20 points on 7 of 16 shooting from the field.

She said: "I think I would like to see Michael Jordan's first game with the Chicago Bulls". "It straight-up sucks compared to what Oprah gave me".

Dowtin had an off-balance 3-pointer with 19.3 seconds left to make it 87-81. The Hawks never cut the deficit to fewer than two and missed out on a chance to tie when Taylor Funk traveled near midcourt with 0.5 seconds left. "Being able to hit open shots, that's what we did".

The Wildcats stole a spot in the Tournament on Sunday afternoon, taking down Rhode Island in the final of the Atlantic 10 Tournament, 58-57.

Saint Joseph's: The Hawks won seven of eight before Saturday's loss and started only one senior in the conference tournament. "They're going to be a big problem next year with that group of young guys", Hurley said.

Davidson did manage a victory, beating Rhode Island 68-67 on Sunday.
