The URI Rams are off to a 12-5 start (4-2 in Atlantic 10 play) and tied for 4th place in the league. One reason for Rhody's resurgence: forward Hassan Martin. Averaging 12 points, 7.2 boards, and 3.1 blocks per game (leads the A10), and shooting a robust 64 percent from the field, Martin pairs with E.C. Matthews to form a dynamic sophomore tandem. On Thursday, he broke Kenny Green's 25 year-old record for blocks in a game (8), by turning away ten La Salle Explorer shots. After the game, he spoke about his own success this season along with that of the team.
