Rams escape St. Bonaventure, win 11th straight

Treveon-GrahamVCU escaped St. Bonaventure with their first Atlantic 10 road win this afternoon, 72-65 in Olean, NY.

The Rams hit 52 percent of their field goals in the win, but ran into a hot shooting Bonnies squad who hit 11 of their 25 threes, including four deep balls within the final 3:28 that kept the game within single digits.

VCU was able to ice the game at the line, but had trouble at the stripe throughout the contest, hitting just 15 of their 27 attempts.

Treveon Graham once again led VCU in scoring with 17 on the night, 13 of which came in a second half.

Graham played just eight minutes in the first after being saddled with foul trouble early. He finished with 6-10 from the field and added nine rebounds in the win.

Fellow sophomore, Jared Guest, filled the void left by Graham, posting seven first half points and nine on the game in just 14 minutes of play.

Darius Theus led all players with seven assists and added seven points for the Rams.

The win was VCU’s 11th straight and moves the Rams to 14-3 on the season.

The Rams return home to Richmond to take on St. Joseph’s (8-5, 0-1 as of this writing) Thursday night in a rare 9PM tip.
