VCU gets revenge at home against Nevada after a loss last season across the country. Larry Sanders gave everyone a scare going down in the 2nd half with muscle cramps but still had a great night with 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 blocks.
Ed Nixon helped the cause by adding a career high 17 points, perhaps no more important than a 3 point dagger within the final minute. VCU lead by as many as 20 points, but Nevada was able to close the lead in the later portion of the game behind former McDonald’s All-American, Luke BabbittÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 27 points, 23 of which came in the second half.
