This year, the NCAA is allowing teams an extra exhibition game for hurricane relief. Rhode Island is one team to take advantage of this allowance. It was announced this past week that Dan Hurley’s squad would face Buffalo on October 28th. The Rams will get a shot to face a team that ranked 122nd last season according to Kenpom. Rhode Island will tip off the regular season on Friday, November 10th against UNC Asheville.
Rhode Island will play Buffalo in an exhibition for charity relief on 10/28, per release.
