J'Covan Brown totaled a game-high 33 points as Texas downed Rhode Island, 100-90, at Frank Erwin Center.
Jamal Wilson totaled 24 points for the Rams (0-2), who look to get on the winning side of the ledger at Nebraska on Sunday. Nikola Malesevic added 22 points in a losing cause.
Mike Rutherford, who is watching 24-straight hours of college basketball for SB Nation (Bless him) gave the game a 5/10 rating:
Was actually good, clean family fun for about 10 minutes, but all Texas outside of that. Still, up-and-down with a lot of scoring warrants at least a cinco.
