KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) Ifeanyi Onyekaba scored a double-double, 21 points and 10 rebounds in only 20 minutes of action, as Rhode Island overwhelmed Maine 97-77 Friday.

Maine, led by Xavier Pollard with 23 points, came charging back to tighten the score in the first half. The Black Bears closed to 21-19 on a Pollard layup at the midway point. That was as close as they could get as Rhode Island began to stretch the lead, going into the break with a 52-35 advantage. Rhode Island outscored Maine in the second half, 45-42, but it was more than enough.

Jarelle Reischel, Hassan Martin and Xavier Munford all scored in double digits for the Rams.
