Richmond 64, Rhode Island 61

  •  

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Darien Brothers scored 15 points, including 8 of 8 free throws, as Richmond withstood a second-half flurry by Rhode Island's Xavier Munford to win 64-61 Monday night in an Atlantic 10 Conference opener.

The Spiders (11-5, 1-0) led 60-42 with 5:17 remaining before a 17-0 run by the Rams (5-9, 0-1). Mike Aamon's three-point play started it, then Munford sank three 3-pointers in a span of 1:26 to make it 60-54.

Munford's jumper with 30 seconds left cut Richmond's lead to 60-59, but the Spiders got two free throws apiece from Kendall Anthony and Wayne Sparrow to hold on.

Munford scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half.

Brothers scored nine points in the first half, which ended with Richmond leading 38-28. Greg Robbins and Deion Taylor scored 11 each for Richmond, and Alonzo Nelson-Ododa blocked five shots.

Rhode Island's Aaman had 13 points and 12 rebounds.
