Rams defeat Wofford; Face New Hampshire
After a monumental collapse on the road against UAB earlier this month, VCU looked to right the ship against Wofford College Wednesday night at the Stu. The match up was the 2nd game of the day as part of the Richmond Marriot Holiday on the Hardwood Tournament.
Wofford is coming off a win against High Point University but the Rams weren’t about to let them get a win at the Stu defeating the Terriers in a tight one, 75 to 66.
Senior Brandon Rozzell led the Rams with 18 points, shooting 8-19 on the night half of those being 3’s. Junior Bradford Burgess chipped in 13 points on the night along with 4 rebounds.
The 2nd half saw some better shooting from the Rams from the behind the arc. After going just 38 % in the first half the Rams bested that in the 2nd, shooting 51%.
Rebounding was also a factor for the Rams in tonight’s match up. Rams were out rebounded by the Terriers, 32-26.
Noah Dalhman and Jamar Diggs led the Terriers in points with 13 on the night but the Rams led the Terriers in field goals shooting 48% to Wofford’s 46%.
The win moved VCU’s overall record to 8-4 and will face New Hampshire tomorrow at the Siegel Center for the 2nd half of the Marriot Tournament.
