Game Preview: VCU v Princeton – NIT First Round

The show goes on. While the Rams time in DC was shorter than hoped, the black and gold will get an opportunity to continue playing after accepting an NIT bid this year in what is a loaded NIT field featuring four Atlantic 10 teams. VCU will start their path against a fairly familiar opponent, taking on Mitch Henderson’s Princeton Tigers squad, a rematch six years in the making following VCU’s 81-70 win over the Ivy League squad back in November of 2016. The Rams got out to an insanely slow start in that one, going down 16-0 early before rallying to tie it at halftime and eventually pulling out the win. VCU will hope to avoid that same kind of start to begin their path to Madison Square Garden this evening.
