The Rams have won seven straight after Saturday’s rematch road win against the Panthers of Georgia State. That victory sets VCU up well down the stretch, putting them three games ahead of GSU and two ahead of Northeastern for a top-4 finish in conference play. Having never had a team play on Friday night and win five straight come CAA tourny time, locking up a first round tournament bye is crucial for the first weekend in March. The Rams get their one and only shot at Northeastern in a Homecoming tip this Saturday in Richmond, but have to deal with a pesky William & Mary squad that nearly knocked off the black-and-gold in an overtime thriller in Richmond first.
Our mission this week is to get as many Ram fans to travel the short trip down 64 East to Williamsburg, in what is always one of our favorite road trips of the season. We want to turn Kaplan Arena into Siegel Center East this Wednesday as Shaka’s squad takes on the Tribe in a 7PM tip. Get out of work at 5PM? perfect. It’ll take you about an hour to get there, leaving an hour to cook a couple of parking lot burgers, drink your favorite pre-game beverage, and get in your seat. We do it every year, and it’s always a blast. So join us this Wednesday and show your Rams some road support.
