At this Saturday’s URI vs Massachusetts basketball game, our own Power 5 coach, Kenny Green will receive an inaugural URI “Ring of Honor” during a halftime ceremony.
Carlton “Silk” Owens, Tom Garrick, and Kenny Green will become the first members of URI’s newly created Ring of Honor. The three men – all key members of the 1987-88 Sweet 16 team – will have their names and jersey numbers hung in the Ryan Center permanently.
Coach Green and the other members of his team will be inducted into the URI Athletic Hall of Fame in a ceremony Friday evening,
On Saturday, over 30 enthusiastic Winchendon School students will be on hand to see the nationally televised ceremony.
We just think we’re pretty lucky to have him as a member of our team.
