2017-2018 Rhode Island Rams

Not a ton of changes from last year's team to this years but the departures could be problematic if replacements are there. Langevine will replace Martin and right now I believe Akele will replace Iverson, Tertsea will back them up.


Players lost:
Hassan Martin
Kuran Iverson

Players added:
Michael Tertsea (F) (redshirted)
Daron "Fatts" Russell (G)
1 scholarship available (hoping to get the #1 JUCO player/forward Shakur Juiston)

Returning players:
Jeff Dowtin (So.)
Mike Layssard (So.)
Cyril Langevine (So.)
Christian Thompson (Jr.)
Nicola Akele (Jr.)
Jarvis Garrett (Sr.)
Jared Terrell (Sr.)
Andre Berry (Sr.)
Stanford Robinson (Sr.)
EC Mathews (Sr.)


This team should compete for the top of the league and most likely will be preseason favorites with the Bonnies

re: 2017-2018 Rhode Island Rams

What I want from the early season schedule is to find out who our best D and rebounding Forward/Centers are besides Langevine. Our small ball lineup will probably be one of the best in the A10 if not the country, but flaws like allowing too many offensive rebounds will be exposed in March. So the Rams definitely need some quality depth among the bigs.
