No. 16 Rhode Island guard Matthews to play against Bonnies

OLEAN, N.Y. (AP) Rhode Island guard E.C. Matthews has been given the go-ahead to play against St. Bonaventure on Friday night, three days after the 16th-ranked Rams' second-leading scorer hurt his left knee.

Team spokesman Shane Donaldson provided the update a little over an hour before tip-off between the Atlantic 10 Conference schools. Matthews is averaging 12.9 points per game, and the Rams have won 16 straight since the senior returned after missing six games with a broken left wrist.

Matthews was hurt late in the first half of an 85-67 win over Richmond on Tuesday.

The Rams (21-3, 13-0 A-10) can clinch a share of the conference's regular-season title with a win against the Bonnies (19-6, 9-4), who have won seven straight.
