Peters' late FTs help Valparaiso hold off Rhode Island 58-55
Alec Peters' 3-pointer put Valparaiso up 56-50, but Four McGlynn's 3-pointer and Jared Terrell's layup after he blocked Fernandez's shot at the other end pulled the Rams within a point with 34.1 seconds left.
Peters' two free throws made it a three-point game with 9.6 seconds to play, and McGlynn missed two 3-pointers before the buzzer.
Rhode Island played its first full game without standout guard E.C. Matthews, who sustained a season-ending knee injury in the first half of a game against American last Friday.
