Rhode Island @ St. Bonaventure (+2)
7 p.m. ET
The Bonnies currently appear in just 20 brackets according to bracketmatrix.com, which tracks the projections of 109 “bracketologists” from across the globe. That puts St. Bonaventure in the consensus “First Four Out” group. It needs this game, especially since “Quad 1” (a warmed up rehash of “quality wins”) opportunities are scarce in a down year for the A10. Even with a win over URI tonight, I still suspect the Bonnies would have to avoid another loss and probably reach the A10 final to feel safe.
