Rhode Island Drops Final Regular Season Match vs. UMass

How It Happened

The match wrapped up the regular season and 2017 spring slate for the Rams, who head to the Atlantic 10 Championship in Orlando, Fla. from April 26-30 at the USTA National Campus.

Quotable:
"Today we lost to a well coached UMass team. Judy Dixon has been one of the premier college coaches in the country and her team reflected it on the court. We battled, but they had too much firepower for us. Jordan Rucks ended her last regular season match with one of her best efforts as a college player. I am very proud of the way she is ending her career!"
- head coach Tim Murphy
