Video: Rams win fifth straight, blowout GW
The Rams started off slow but eventually blew past GW, winning 84-57 in front of yet another capacity crowd tonight.
Juvonte Reddic was dominant throughout, leading with a game highs in points and rebounds, posting 24 points and 10 boards, giving the junior his ninth double-double of the season.
Reddic added two blocks and two steals in a night VCU had 19 total.
Once again havoc was on display, as the Rams turned George Washington over 25 times on the night.
The black-and-gold shot a hot 53.3% on the game and hit 8-of-17 3-pointers on the night while holding GW to just 38.9% from the field and giving up just a single make from long range.
Freshman Melvin Johnson had his second-straight double-digit night, adding 11 points on 5-9 shooting. Troy Daniels and Rob Brandenberg also added 11 each, rounding out the list of double-digit scorers for VCU.
The win moves the Rams to 21-5 on the season and a league leading 9-2 in Atlantic 10 play.
VCU will look to hold on to that lead against a tough St. Louis team Tuesday night. The Billikens sit .5 games behind the Rams at 8-2 and are riding a seven-game winning streak.
VCU’s next three opponents are all within the top five of the league.
