The Colonials play 21st-ranked Rhode Island Tuesday in a match up of two of the Atlantic 10’s best teams. GW enters the game as one of the hottest teams in the nation. The Colonials have won seven games straight and 15 of their last 16. GW is ranked 22nd by the Associated Press. The Rams are coming off a 67-66 win over St. Bonaventure Sunday and are 16-4 on the season. Rhode Island is led by its backcourt of Cuttino Mobley (16.1 points per game) and Tyson Wheeler (14.6 ppg and 6.3 assists per game). Wheeler can create plays off the dribble and shoot from the outside. He set a school record with nine three-pointers in a game at St. Joseph’s earlier this year. Mobley is equally good from behind the arc. He makes 40 percent of his three-pointers and made eight three-pointers in a game against Temple earlier this season. In the front court, the Rams are led by Antonio Reynolds-Dean’s 11.5 ppg and 7.5 rebounds per game.
