Rhode Island beat Virginia Commonwealth in March in the Atlantic 10 championship in Pittsburgh, winning the conference crown for the second time in program history. The win allowed the Rams to advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 18 years. Rhode Island beat Creighton University in the first round before losing to the University of Oregon in the second round.

The Rams finished the season with a 25-10 record.

Hurley said he looks forward to working with URI officials as they continue to increase the profile and growth of Rhode Island basketball.
