(WPRI) – The University of Rhode Island has secured a trip to the Atlantic 10 Championship with a convincing win over Davidson Saturday.

The Rams rolled, 84-60, over the Wildcats to earn a trip to their first A-10 title game in ten years.

The last time the Rams won the A-10 title was 1999.

With the win, the Rams also improve their chances to get into the upcoming NCAA tournament. If they secure the A-10 title they will be in by default.

The Rams now wait for the winner of VCU and Richmond, who play Saturday afternoon. They’ll face the winner Sunday in Pittsburgh.
