(WPRI) — For the first time in program history, the URI women’s basketball team has clinched a share of the A-10 title, defeating Dayton 81-57 on Saturday. The Lady Rams finish the regular season with a 23-5 record (14-2) in conference.

“It was pure satisfaction. It’s the reason I cane here was to build something special. It’s the reason I didn’t want to leave here,” said head coach Tammi Reiss. “All those fans that stayed with us, you think about and I see them all in the stands and I had to personally thank them all after the game because it means the world to us.”
