Liveblog: VCU v. Hofstra

We’re halfway through CAA play already, and two teams picked to finish no higher than third in the conference will throw down in a nationally televised battle for sole possession of first place.

Charles Jenkins, the CAA’s top scorer and one of the nation’s premier guards, will lead a Hofstra Pride team into a rowdy Stuart C. Siegel Center as both teams look for their ninth win in a conference that boasts as many top 100 RPI teams as the ACC.

Senior Joey Rodriguez leads a group of talented VCU guards in a bid to shut down the 2009 CAA Player of the Year, and in turn pick up the Rams 8th straight win and gain a little separation from the rest of the Colonial pack.
