Video - VCU completes Hofstra sweep

<a href="http://www.vcuramnation.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/dsc05259.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-6594" title="dsc05259" src="http://www.vcuramnation.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/dsc05259-204x300.jpg" alt="" width="204" height="300" /></a>Once again the Rams used a stifling defense to keep themselves toward top of the CAA standings, this time shutting down Hofstra 61-49 to complete the regular season sweep.

It was the third time the black-and-gold held an opponent under 50 points during their current three-game win streak, turning the Pride over 18 times on the night and holding them to just 4-of-20 shooting in the second half of play.

Bradford Burgess lead the Rams with 14 points in the win, half coming from the free throw line, and matched Juvonte Reddic's game-high 7 rebounds.

Three other Rams posted double-digits on the evening, as Burgess was joined by starters Reddic (10), Troy Daniels (12), and Darius Theus (10), who posted his first three-game double-digit scoring stretch of the season.

The Rams may have lost four seniors from last year's Final 4 team, but have been served well by their youth, matching last year's 16-5 start to the season.

VCU will head to the Towson Center to take on the Tigers of Towson University (0-21, 0-9) this Thursday. The Tigers are currently riding a 40-game losing streak and haven't recorded a win since December of 2010.

The Rams will follow that game with road contests at Georgia State and William &amp; Mary before returning to the Siegel Center for a special "white out" homecoming game against the Huskies of Northeastern University.
