Recap: Rhode Island vs. SMU

Kingston, RI (Sports Network) - Mike Powell tallied a game-high 18 points and six steals, as the Rhode Island Rams stunned the SMU Mustangs, 72-50, in non- conference play at the Ryan Center.

Andre Malone chipped in with 15 points and eight rebounds for the Rams (3-7), who have won three of their last five after starting the season 0-5. Nikola Malesevic added 12 points, and Xavier Munford finished with 11.

Ryan Manuel and Jalen Jones scored 14 points apiece for the Mustangs (8-2), who had won their previous three games to claim their best start since 2006-07 under first-year head coach Larry Brown.
