The NCAA Tournament is underway, and for the first time in several years, Rhode Island had representation from multiple programs.

Providence College and Bryant were among the first teams to take the court.

The Bulldogs suffered an early exit, falling to Wright State in one of the First Four play-in games, but the Friars have made it to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1997.

Providence defeated South Dakota State 66-57 in the first round, then overpowered Richmond 79-51 to advance again.
