URI advances to NIT semis vs. UNC

Delroy James scored 18 points and had a big block and rebound in the final minute to lead Rhode Island past Virginia Tech and into the NIT semifinals with a 79-72 victory Wednesday night in Blacksburg, Va. The Rams (26-9) will play defending NCAA champion North Carolina on Tuesday night (9 p.m.) at Madison Square Garden in the semis.

 

Keith Cothran hit a jumper with 1:59 remaining to break a 71-all tie and put URI in front to stay. With 46 seconds left, James blocked a potential tying layup and grabbed the rebound. There were no more points scored until eight seconds remained, when Lamonte Ulmer rebounded his own miss and finished it off for a four-point URI lead.

 

After Malcom Delaney (24 points) hit 1-of-2 free throws to draw Virginia Tech (25-9) within three, URI closed out the scoring with four free throws in the final four seconds.
