MBB Gameday Previews: at Rhode Island, 3/9/13

Time for the UMass basketball team to hit the road looking to sweep the season series from Rhode Island. Today's game tips off at 2 p.m. While UMass can't get a first round bye in next week's Buick Atlantic 10 Championship, there is plenty to play for in regards to tourney seeding. With a win today, the Minutemen can assure themselves of the sixth or seventh spot, which would put them into the evening session of Thursday's games. If UMass loses, it could be inserted into a tie at 8-8 with as many as five other schools based on the rest of Saturday's results. Until then, check out some of the gameday stories below. The game will be televised by Cox in Rhode Island on the their Ocean State Networks. There is a link to watch the game in the Gameday HQ below but it is a subscription fee associated with it.
