St. Bonaventure aims to make it back-to-back road conference victories when it travels to the Ocean State for a special Education Day a.m. tip off at Rhode Island Wednesday morning. The Bonnies are fresh off a win at UMass on Saturday that improved the team to 2-4 overall on the still young A-10 season.
- Wednesday will be the 54th meeting all-time between St. Bonaventure and Rhode Island in the long standing Atlantic 10 rivals. The Bonnies have won 11 straight games over the Rams and own a 30-23 all-time series lead.
- The Bonnies have won the last nine games in the series by an average of over 13 points including seven victories by double digits.
- The Bonnies swept the season series with Rhode Island last year, taking wins at The RC as well as at the Ryan Center. The second matchup was dramatic, as the Bonnies erased a 12-point URI second half lead to take a 77-72 victory in late February. Danielle Migliore finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three assists to power the Bonaventure attack.
- A pair of Bonnies have been impressive against the Rams - last season, Migliore averaged 15.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in the two games a year ago vs. URI and Emily Calabrese posted 14.5 points and 7.0 rebounds including a career high 19 points in a January home win over the Rams last season.
