Red-hot Rhode Island knocks off Creighton

(TSX / STATS) -- SACRAMENTO -- Hassan Martin powered his way inside for a basket, turned toward the crowd and flexed for the Rhode Island band.

It was still early in the second half, but it was already clear that the Rams would not go down without a fight in their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999.

Jeff Dowtin scored 23 points to help 11th-seeded Rhode Island upset sixth-seeded Creighton 84-72 in a Midwest Regional first-round game Friday at the Golden 1 Center.
