Bob Hurley watches son Dan lead Rhode Island

Confident URI Can Beat Oregon

Confident URI Can Beat Oregon

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Oregon is a slight favorite, as the Ducks are getting odds of -5.5 points against Rhode Island. In their first game without him in the lineup, the Ducks struggled to get stops, allowing 83 points on 58% shooting in the PAC-12 title game against Arizona.

Hurley is watching son, fifth-year Rams coach Dan Hurley, as the program returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 18 years and won its first game against Creighton for Rhode Island's first NCAA victory since reaching the 1998 Elite Eight and losing to Stanford.

Michigan's Sweet 16 matchup against OR in Kansas City, Mo., on Thursday will tip-off at 7:09 p.m. on CBS.

The Rams took the lead early on in the game but OR caught up for a nail biting second half.

It wasn't another Dillon Brooks buzzer-beater, but Sunday night had to feel familiar, as OR has grown accustomed to late-game escape acts with two of the nation's best shot makers.

Rhode Island's remarkable late-season run has come to end, but it remains a massive success for coach Danny Hurley to get the Rams back to the tourney, with an A-10 trophy, too. "There was [sic] 2 minutes left, I dropped them and I had to keep playing, and we kept playing and kept fighting and hit the glass and got crucial offensive rebounds", Dorsey said.

The Rams fell behind by eight early, but they finished the first half on a 24-8 run to take an eight-point lead into the locker room. First, he hit the three pointer to tie the game.

OR settled down, playing aggressive defensively with a full-court man defense and looking for traps whenever possible.

OR shot 48.1 percent from the field, made 7 of 16 from 3-point range and amassed a 35-28 rebounding advantage.

"We both chose to come here 4 years ago".

DorseyDorsey was the go-to guy all day long as he had 10 points in the first half and was the only Duck in double-figure scoring when the first 20 minutes were up.

"We feel very fortunate to be moving on and we know how hard MI will be on Thursday", Oregon coach Dana Altman said.

"Unacceptable", the coach said.

Rhode Island had one last chance, but E.C. Matthews missed the game-tying three in the final seconds. "It's very hard to describe", he said. The streak-shooting sophomore is heating up at the right time, having scored 21 or more points in all five of Oregon's postseason games.
