Rhode Island Rams Have an Opportunity to Grow

Growing pains. Like an 8-year-old who wakes up in the middle of the night complaining to his mother that his legs are hurting. Or for this case, like what seems to be the new storyline out of Kingston this winter. The Rhode Island Rams are growing and the remainder of the non-conference slate leaves opportunities...

Give Youthful URI Rams the Benefits of Time

E.C. Matthews, URI seniors have left their mark

Things probably didn't go as planned for URI redshirt senior E.C. Matthews. A torn ACL just minutes into his junior season in 2015 and a fractured wrist in the second game of the 2017-18 season definitely were not on the horizon when Matthews arrived in Kingston in 2013. However, five years since his arrival,...
