After suffering its first Atlantic 10 loss in more than a year, No. 18 Rhode Island must pick up the pieces for its next game Tuesday at La Salle.
The Rams (21-4, 13-1 Atlantic 10) can clinch a tie for the regular-season conference title with a win.
They are coming off a 77-74 loss at St. Bonaventure on Friday, their first defeat since losing 68-64 at Alabama on Dec. 6 and their first setback in conference play since losing 53-43 against Fordham on Feb. 15, 2017. Before the loss, Rhode Island had the nation's longest winning streak at 16 games.
