March Madness Live: Rhody Loses in a Nail-biter Against Oregon

On [Sunday] 11 URI played against 3 Oregon in a whopper of a game.  11 URI was leading most of the game and was looking to upset the Ducks.  They went on a [14-2] run, thanks in large part to Stanford Robinson who had 21 points in the game.  They had an 8 point lead going into the half [46-38].  Yet they made some crucial mistakes, turning the ball over 3 times.  Which helped 3 Oregon come back in the game.

The Rhode Island Rams had scoring chances down the floor but couldn’t score in the final 2 minutes of the game.  It ended up coming down to last possession.  11 URI was down by 3 points.  They needed to make a 3 pointer to tie the game.  The shot went up and missed, ending the Rhode Island Ram’s season.  With a final score of [75-72] Ducks.  It was a heartbreaking defeat and the Rhody Rams knew it.  They had it in the bag but let it slip through their fingers.

There were several other notable games on [Sunday].  7 Michigan beat 2 Louisville in a big upset against a Rick Pitino coached Team.  There was also the 8 Arkansas game against 1 UNC Tar Heels, that came down to the last minute of the game.  There was also the 10 Wichita State game against 2 Kentucky.  Which was another heart-breaker that came down to last possession with a 3 point difference.  Kentucky won [65-62].
