Game Preview: VCU at Richmond

Crosstown rivals will tip it up for the first game in an A-10 home-and-home series that has been historically controlled by the black and gold. Despite Richmond’s experience and preseason hype, they have found themselves a disappointing 1-6 as of right now against kenpom top-100 teams and enter today’s contest against the 70th-ranked Rams hoping to avoid their third Atlantic 10 home loss. VCU avenged a home loss to Davidson with a tight road W in Belk and are looking for another resume-helping road victory today at the Robins Center. It will be VCU’s first game there since Feb 15, 2020, an 18-point blowout loss that featured an almost identical roster to the one VCU will take on today.
