The Richmond Spiders will head on the road to the Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island on Tuesday night for an Atlantic 10 battle against the undefeated Rhode Island Rams.

The Rams enter Tuesday with a perfect 12-0 conference record. Dan Hurley’s squad hasn’t lost a game since Dec. 6 and pushed their winning streak to 15 games with another lopsided victory over Davidson.

Spiders do their damage from inside the arc

Richmond fell on the road to St. Bonaventure on Saturday, despite a game-high 26 points from sophomore Nick Sherod. Grant Golden chipped in 24 points and Khwan Fore added 16, but it wasn’t enough for the Spiders to pull off the road upset.

The Spiders enter Tuesday’s matchup scoring 105.4 points per 100 possessions (5th in the A10) during conference play, while allowing 102.9 points per 100 possessions on the defensive end of the floor (5th in the A10).

Richmond has turned the ball over on just 16.4 percent of their offensive possessions during league play (5th in the A10) and the Spiders own an effective field goal percentage of 52.6 percent through 12 conference games.

Head coach Chris Mooney’s squad gets most of their points from inside the arc. In fact, coming into Tuesday’s contest, the Spiders have gotten 55.8 percent of their total points from two-point range (2nd in the A10) during league play.

Defensively, Richmond does a good job of forcing turnovers and defending the three-point line. The Spiders have forced turnovers on 19.1 percent of their defensive possessions (2nd in the A10), while limiting their opponents to just 31.6 percent shooting from three-point range (2nd in the A10) during conference play.

Rams remain undefeated in conference play

The Rams knocked off Davidson 72-59 on Friday to remain undefeated in Atlantic 10 play this season. Jarvis Garrett scored a team-high 17 points, while Cyril Langevine chipped in 14 to help the Rams keep their winning streak alive. Rhode Island led by as many as 20 points in the second half and the team shot 49 percent from the field in the win.

The Rams enter Tuesday’s matchup scoring 113.0 points per 100 possessions (2nd in the A10), despite shooting just 30.9 percent of their total shots from three-point range (13th in the A10). The Rams have a fairly well-rounded offense. They turn the ball over on just 15.9 percent of their offensive possessions (3rd in the A10) and sport an offensive rebounding rate of 31.8 percent through 12 conference games (3rd in the A10). The Rams also own the fourth-best effective field goal percentage at 52.8 percent during league play.

Defensively, Hurley’s squad is among the best units in the country at forcing turnovers. Rhode Island has forced A10 teams to turn the ball over on 23.1 percent of their possessions (1st in the A10) so far this season, while limiting them to just 30.1 percent shooting from beyond the three-point line (1st in the A10).

Opposing team are scoring just 93.6 points per 100 possessions (1st in the A10) with an effective field goal percentage of only 48.5 percent (1st in the A10) against the Rams defense during conference play.

Trends

Richmond

  • Spiders are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games.

Rhode Island

  • Rams are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games.

Rhode Island has been one of the best all-around teams in the country this season. The Rams play small most of the time with EC Matthews stretching the floor at the four spot, but that hasn’t stopped them from dominating the glass during conference play. They have three competent ball handlers in Jared Terrell, Jeff Dowtin and Jarvis Garrett, so they do a good job of taking care of the basketball and winning the turnover battle. Look for that to be the difference against a Richmond team that also knows how to put pressure on opposing ball handlers. Take the Rams to cover the spread at home in this A10 battle.
