Jared Terrell Leads URI Rams Past Iona 80-74

URI Jared Terrell

For the second game in a row, the URI Rams turned up the heat in the second half to pull away from an opponent, this time beating Iona 80-74 on Yurview New England.

Jared Terrell led Rhody, dropping 23 points, to help the Rams come back from a nine point deficit early in the second half. Sixteen of those points came in that half, when Terrell carried his team when they needed it most.

After Iona took a one point lead into halftime, the Gaels went on a 10-2 run to start the second half, building their lead to nine on an E.J. Crawford three-pointer. The Rams began to chip away, scoring the next five points from the free throw line and clamping down defensively to get within striking distance.

From there, Jared Terrell started to turn it on.

The senior gave the Rams their first lead since the first half with a three-pointer at the 12 minute mark, and he then followed that up with a layup.

With Rhody clinging to a one point lead with just over five minutes left, Terrell then scored ten of the Rams final 19 points, giving Dan Hurley and his team a victory in their next-to-last nonconference game.
