It's their second long winning streak of the season after the NBA-leading Rockets won 14 in a row from November 16 to December 18. After leading the Houston Rockets by six points late in the fourth quarter, the Celtics should have wanted more than that.

"They kind of hurt us, beating us on Senior Night", Russell said.

Saint Joseph's pushed the pace with 4 points off of fast breaks versus an opposing 2 points off of fast breaks. The Rams were 14-for-31 on 3-pointers on Saturday, a season high in makes, and URI handed out 22 assists against just five turnovers.

"Last year we were much more back-against-the-wall", Hurley said. Saint Joseph's appeared poised to deliver another upset while trying to extend its injury-riddled season. "We try to take away the 3-point line and pride ourselves on the way we guard the ball". The A-10 title game will be played at 1 p.m. on WPRI-12. "I saw an opening and took a shot". Shavar Newkirk led Saint Joseph's' team in scoring with 18 points, while shooting 50% from the field (making 7 of 14 attempts).

The veteran big man is in the midst of a MVP-caliber season, averaging 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 steals over 36.5 minutes per game. Ruthie Polinsky will be in Washington, D.C. where the Rams are in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. URI is looking to become the first team in the conference since Saint Louis in 2012-13 to sweep both the regular-season and tournament titles. "We want to experience that again and force (Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette) McGlade to hand us a third straight trophy". "Not only did we get there, but we think we can win in the tournament". "That's an exciting feeling".
