[Men’s Basketball] Rio men rally to push past Ohio Christian

Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio – It might not have been the most picturesque of victories, but that didn't mean University of Rio Grande men's basketball head coach Ryan Arrowood was willing to give it back.
    Not on the heels of the RedStorm's blowout loss in their River States Conference home opener last Tuesday.
    Arrowood's club shook off the aftereffects of a 33-point setback at the hands of WVU-Tech, rallying from a six-point second half deficit to post a 64-59 conference win over Ohio Christian University, Tuesday night, at the Newt Oliver Arena.
    Rio Grande evened its overall record at 4-4 and improved to 3-1 against RSC foes.
    Ohio Christian, which was playing for the first time in three weeks after having its early season slate raveged by COVID-19, dropped to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in league play.

[Women’s Basketball] RedStorm rolls Blazers, Smalley wins 600th

Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio – Given the way that his team has played this season, University of Rio Grande head coach David Smalley has delivered very few – if any – in-game, paint-peeling sermons.
    Tuesday night, the right reverend made his debut behind the pulpit in the RedStorm lockerroom at halftime of their River States Conference meeting with visiting Ohio Christian.
    Needless to say, his message was delivered loud and clear.

[Women’s Basketball] Rio women upend No. 9 Warriors

Rio Grande Sports Information
    FORT WAYNE, Ind. – In his 29-plus years as the women's basketball head coach at the University of Rio Grande, David Smalley has enjoyed his fair share of memorable victories.
    None of his nearly 600 career triumphs, though, had come against a Top 10 foe.
    Until Saturday afternoon, that is.
    Smalley's RedStorm rallied from 11 points down late in the third quarter and held on down the stretch for an 85-79 win over previously-unbeaten and No. 9-ranked Indiana Tech in non-conference women's basketball action at the Schaefer Center.
    Rio Grande won for the 11th time in as many outings this season, while also avenging a 16-point loss to the host Warriors in the opening round of last season's NAIA national tournament.
    Indiana Tech, which surrendered its most points in a game since an 88-81 loss at Madonna (Mich.) on Nov. 16, 2016, dropped to 9-1 with the loss.

[Men’s Basketball] WVU-Tech wallops Rio men

Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio – West Virginia University-Tech's last trip to the Newt Oliver Arena resulted in a thrilling, buzzer-beating slam dunk by the University of Rio Grande's Shiloah Blevins which lifted the host RedStorm to a one-point victory.
    Tuesday night's return to the Buckeye State by the Golden Bears didn't produce the same kind of last-second drama.
    Tech jumped to a double-digit lead less than five minutes into the contest and continued to pull away en route to a 76-43 blitzing of their hosts in pre-holiday River States Conference men's basketball action.
    The Golden Bears improved to 6-2 overall and 3-0 in conference play with the victory.
    Rio Grande, which had a modest two-game winning streak snapped, dropped to 3-4 overall and 2-1 inside the RSC.

Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio – There were plenty of tunrovers between the University of Rio Grande and West Virginia University-Tech on Tuesday night, with each team committing 18 miscues.
    The difference, though, was that the RedStorm made the Golden Bears pay for theirs much more than the other way around.
    Rio finished with a 24-13 advantage in points off of turnovers, helping to fuel an 80-63 over Tech in River States Conference women's basketball action at the Newt Oliver Arena.
    Rio Grande remained unbeaten as a result of the victory, improving to 10-0 overall and 3-0 in league play.
