Rhode Island Rams 1997-1998
The 1997-1998 Rhode Island Rams entered the season ranked inside the Top 25. Led by seniors Cuttino Mobley and Tyson Wheeler along with National Champion Head Coach Jim Harrick the Rams went 25-9.
That was good enough to secure an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. Rhode Island entered the tournament as an 8 seed before beating 9 seed and #25 ranked Murray State setting up a showdown with Paul Pierce and #1 seed Kansas.
Mobley poured in 27 points and 5 assists and Wheeler added 20 points, 8 assists and 5 rebounds to propel the Rams to a 80-75 upset that put them in the Sweet 16!
"When we play as well together as we did tonight, it's very difficult for opponents to hold us. I'm not trying to be high on ourselves, but that's the advantage we have: to out-quick people."
