SACRAMENTO, Calif. (WPRI) – The URI Rams fell to third-ranked Oregon tonight in Sacramento in the second round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

The Rams fell 75-72, after a last-minute three-pointer put the Ducks up. The Rams had been leading the majority of the game up until that point.

The 11th-ranked Rams upset sixth-seeded Creighton on Friday, 84-72, to set up today’s meeting.

The Rams and Ducks have met twice in their history and split the series, one game each; according to the NCAA the last time they met was the 1981-1982 season.

The Oregon Ducks will now move on to the Sweet Sixteen.

The game aired on TBS Sunday evening.
