Kingston, RI 2/26/05

      The 5,798 fans that turned out to see the first place St. Joe Hawks do battle with the steadily improving but struggling URI Rams were not disappointed, unless they were one of only a handful of visting fans.  Terrence Mack lead Rhody with 17 points and 10 rebounds, in only 20 minutes of play.  Pat Carroll lead the hawks with 25 points. 
     
     The lead changed 12 times and the score was tied 8 times.  Against UMASS and Fordham, the Rams came up short in the final seconds.  Although St. Joe's mounted a desperate attempt to steal the victory, the Rhody Rams would not be denied this game. 

     In the final thirty seconds, Parfait Bitee had a layup for two points, and Scott Hazelton had a dunk for two points - both scored when Randy Brooks had long outlet passes to break the St. Joe's press.  Jon Lucky then contributed with two free throws and Hazelton finished off the Hawks with two more free throws with 6 seonds left in the game.  The Rams had their stongest finish of any game this season.  The Rhody faithful took to the court after the game in celebration of the great win over their rivals.
