- Two newcomers made impacts Wednesday at Rhode Island: junior guard Anthony Roberts made his Bonnies debut after missing the first two games of the year, recording eight points and four assists. Redshirt junior forward Jalen Adaway had his best game in a Bona uniform with 12 points, six boards and three assists.
- The Bonnies are in a rare position of starting conference play 0-1. Prior to this year, SBU had won six of its previous seven conference openers. The last time they were 0-1 in the A-10, though, was 2018-19 when Bona reached the A-10 Championship Game. The Bonnies are looking to avoid their first 0-2 A-10 start since 2012-13.
- Bona opened Atlantic 10 play undefeated for the first time, though their unblemished non-conference schedule included just two games. Wednesday's game at Rhody came after an 11-day layoff after yet another game that was scrapped due to virus concerns before the holiday break when the game vs. Buffalo slated for Dec. 22 was canceled due to a positive COVID-19 test result within Buffalo's Tier 1 personnel. That was the sixth game of the year canceled because of virus concerns - three when the Bonnies went on pause Nov. 19 (Towson, Stephen F. Austin, Army) and three others due to issues with an opponent (Vermont, St. Francis (PA), Buffalo).
- Osun Osunniyi had a season high four blocks Wednesday at Rhode Island. It was his 30th career game with three or more blocks out of 61 contests thus far in his Bonaventure career. His 158 career blocks stand 14th among all active Division I players. More impressively, his 2.6 blocks per game rank third among all D-I players. Also, his 7.9 rebounds per game over his career stand 29th nationally among all active Division I players.
