URI was originally scheduled to host La Salle on Sunday, but the Explorers were unable to play due to COVID issues within its program.American International is a Division II program that competes in the Northeast-10 Conference. Based in Springfield, Mass., AIC last played the Rams during the 1941-42 season.Rhode Island was in communication with a handful of Division I programs about playing. A variety of issues – including travel logistics, COVID concerns and other schools already having matchups in place – prevented several possibilities.The Rams last played on Dec. 13 at Milwaukee. When URI takes the court Sunday, it will be 20 days between games for the team.All current full season, mini plan, single game and group ticket buyers holding a ticket for tomorrow against La Salle can present that same ticket for entry tomorrow against American International College.  The same ticket and seat location will apply. In addition, the Ryan Center ticket office will be offering a complimentary ticket offer to each paid ticket account holder in attendance for a future home game of your choice in February/March.
