Roundup: Kadeem Batts lifts Providence over URI

Kadeem Batts broke a 49-49 tie with a free throw with 22.1 seconds left and Providence held on for a 50-49 victory over intrastate rival Rhode Island Thursday night in men’s basketball in Kingston, R.I.

After Batts hit only 1 of 2 free throws, the Rams (6-4) set up for a last try, but freshman E.C. Matthews shot an airball on a fadeaway jumper, with Providence’s LaDontae Henton grabbing the rebound as time expired.
