Liveblog: Homecoming Edition, VCU v UNCW

It’s a gorgeous day for homecoming hoops on Broad St. with the Rams looking to remain atop the CAA and win their 9th straight game.

HOPEFULLY you purchased your ticket already for this sold out contest, but if for some reason you are forced to follow this one at YOUR home arena, be sure to hit up our live chat and talk VCU v UNCW with fellow Ram fans.

VCU dominated the first meeting in this year’s series 82-64. Tonight’s matchup will have a completely different look however, as the Rams will be without two of their top three scorers in Jamie Skeen and Brandon Rozzell.

Rozzell continues to nurse a broken hand that has shelved him since just after VCU’s last meeting with the Seahawks.

Skeen is expected to miss tonight’s game as he rests a sprained knee suffered in Thursday’s home win against Hofstra.

The two combined for 37 points in VCU’s last game against Wilmington, with Rozzell scoring 22 of those off the bench.

The Rams will look to fill those voids with the surprising play of Ram underclassmen.

Juvonte Reddic is coming off a career high 13 points in 24 minutes of play against Hofstra. Freshman Rob Brandenberg has already dropped two 22+ point games in reserve of Brandon Rozzell.

Could tonight be DJ Haley’s turn? Or will one of VCU’s three sophomore’s have their big breakout performance?
