VCU held a 64-59 lead before Richmond hit a barrage of three pointers in the two minutes.

But, 5-6 shooting from the free throw line in the final 90 seconds was enough to keep VCU ahead of the Spiders.

Marcus Evans led the Rams with 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Issac Vann and Marcus Santos-Silva rounded out the double-digit scoring column for the Rams with 11 and 10 points, respectively.
