Video: Shaka talks Memphis, SPF and Burger King

Shaka Smart sat down with some local media yesterday before flying off to the Bahamas for this week’s stacked Battle 4 Atlantis tournament.

After a 2-1 start to the season, the Rams are set for their toughest challenge yet, taking on a ranked Memphis team in round one of the tournament. Following that, VCU will play either No.5 Duke or a Minnesota Golden Gophers program now headed up by former VCU Athletic Director Norwood Teague.

The Rams will play three games all-together, starting with the Memphis game at 7PM on Thanksgiving night. All games will air on the NBC Sports Network.
