KINGSTON, R.I. — Men's Basketball season tickets for the 2017-18 campaign are now on sale through the Ryan Center Box Office.
Renewals and new season ticket sales are at an all-time high coming off the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship and trip to the NCAA Tournament. Prices for full season packages are unchanged and start as low as $160. Discounts are available to URI faculty and staff, as well as young alumni who have graduated between 2008 and 2017.
The 2017-18 squad returns better than 70% of its offense and one of the best backcourt rotations in the nation. Rhode Island returns two of its top three scorers in rising senior guards E.C. Matthews and Jared Terrell. Seniors Jarvis Garrett and Stanford Robinson and sophomore Jeff Dowtin - an 2017 Atlantic 10 All-Rookie team selection - round out a veteran Rams' backcourt that saw each player score at least 21 points in a single game a season ago. Junior Christian Thompson is another veteran guard that can make an impact on both ends of the floor.
Rhody will have frontcourt depth in 2017-18, with six post players at 6-7 or taller. Cyril Langevine - one of the top freshmen forwards in the A-10 - returns for his sophomore along with versatile junior Nicola Akele. Senior Andre Berry, junior Ryan Preston - a junior college transfer, sophomore Mike Layssard, and redshirt freshman Michael Tertsea will all compete for significant roles and playing time.
Fans may elect for up to a seven month payment plan and can secure their seats with just a 15% down payment. Plus, those who purchase season tickets will receive a FREE $20 gift card to Two Ten Oyster Bar and Grill while supplies last.
