Rhode Island will head on the road to face a very good Saint Joseph’s squad as this Atlantic 10 game will be played on NBCSN at 12 p.m. EST.

The Rams (10-5, 2-0) are getting balanced scoring from five double-figure scorers as they’ve won three straight games entering Sunday’s contest. Graduate transfer guard Four McGlynn (12.9 ppg) is the team’s leading scorer while guard Jared Tarrell (12-0) is also logging major minutes and putting up good numbers.

They’ll travel to Philadelphia to face Saint Joseph’s (11-3, 1-1), as they are coming off of a loss to VCU to snap a seven-game winning streak. Isaiah Miles (18.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg) is playing very good ball to start the season while DeAndre Bembry (16.4 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 4.5 apg) is a tremendous all-around talent.

In a deep and tough Atlantic 10 race, both teams could use a win to stay near the top of the standings early in conference play.
