Roughly 15 hours after Bobby Hurley was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament, his younger brother, Dan, led No. 7 Rhode Island to the second round for the second straight year by claiming an 83-78 overtime win over No. 10 Oklahoma and Trae Young on Thursday at PPG Paints Arena.
A highly anticipated game will begin early today at 12:15 pm between the no. 10 Oklahoma Sooners and the no. 7 Rhode Island Rams.
The Sooners' lack of playmakers outside of Young hampered them again, as it had most of the second half of the season.
Rhode Island provided the first collective gasp of the tournament, when Stanford Robinson's potential game-winning putback just barely rimmed out as regulation expired.
That hasn't been an issue for Rhode Island, and as a result the Atlantic 10 regular season champions are off to the second round.
Now, Young has shot himself onto the cusp as a potential lottery player if he chooses to leave after one season.

Young sparked a last-minute comeback to force overtime, scoring 11 points in the final 4:38 of regulation. However the Rams would outscore the Sooners 14-7 in OT to end Oklahoma's season.
