Bones Hyland connected on his first three pointer of the night—and then never looked back—as he raced out to a new career-high 21 points.
The true freshman shot an impressive 67% from the floor (8-12FG) overall while connecting on his long range attempts (5-6 3PTR) at an 83% clip.
Hyland finished the afternoon just two rebound shy of his first career double-double.
The Rams (13-5, 3-2 A10) needed a win today to bounce back from two-consecutive conference losses. This was the Bonnies first conference loss of the season.
VCU used a 22-2 run,—including a 18-0 run to cap the explosive outburst—to create a comfortable cushion for the Rams to live in for the remainder of the afternoon.
Junior, Marcus Santos-Silva, recorded his 7th double-double of the season as he connected for 17 points and pulled down 11 rebound.
Issac Vann was the only other Ram in double digits with 10 points.
Senior, De’Riante Jenkins, led the team with 5 assist to go along with his 5 rebound, and 7 point performance.
VCU returns to action on Tuesday, January 21st, as the Rams head to Philadelphia to take on the Hawks of St. Joe’s. That game is set to tip at 9pm EST and will be broadcast on CBSSN.
