One of Rhode Island’s most famous former players helped the Rams celebrate their NCAA Tournament victory.

Lamar Odom was in Rhode Island’s locker room after the Rams’ 84-72 victory over Creighton.

Rhode Island is making its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999. Odom played on that 1999 Rhode Island team before going on to a productive NBA career.
