Friday's games featured a double-bubble at the top of the A-10. VCU knocked off St. Bonaventure 67-64 to pull within half a game of the Bonnies in the conference race. St. Bonaventure's tournament resume does not have a lot of meat on the bones. Only a win at home over VCU in the teams' first meeting stands out.-----cbssportsline
