    The Official Beat the Keaney Blue Rams of Rhode Island In The Animal Thread

    Defense was disappointing. Scoring 40 in the first half we should have been up by a half dozen at halftime, not tied. With all the great guards and quality teams that have experience against us in the A10, we got to figure this out. Love Bones. Don’t like him going 1 on three. We’re better...

    The Official Beat the GooMoos (Again) in the Animal Thread

    Out rebounded by 19!!! Poor technique and effort on the boards...that’s coaching basics and letting someone out hustle you... Not VCU basketball.

    The Official beat the Shockers of Wichita State University Thread

    Time to man up. Are we undersized compared to some teams. Yes. Do we have as many 4-5 star recruits as some teams. No. But VCU is not about either of those. VCU is about heart, gut checks, chips on our shoulders, never believed in, work harder, over achieving... It is time to execute...

    The Official beat the Shockers of Wichita State University Thread

    The play where our player drives the top of the key into the lane and is surrounded by defenders gets the balls stolen or throws it away in an ugly fashion... needs serious work...love to see statistics but feel like it makes up 30% or more of our turnovers...UGLY turnovers...

    The Official beat the Shockers of Wichita State University Thread

    I am a die hard VCU men’s basketball fan. I love how we are able to book these great fall games and tournaments. But what will it take to turn the corner and consistently win the majority of these games. Better recruits? More seniors? I really thought this was our year. ...as far as people...

    The Official beat the Shockers of Wichita State University Thread

    With a week off they were prepared to play us, executed well, punched us in the mouth and out worked us on the boards...we looked out of control, unprepared and over matched for much of the game. Despite that, if we had just limited our turnovers we would have had a chance to win. It’s a...

    Sean Gone

    SM. Ram nation or no nation. Great line. Sounds hollow. Seemed like a great guy, good family. Wish him the best. Very disappointing though.

    De'Riante Jenkins Appreciation Thread

    DJ's game has improved so much this year. His handle, his passing, his strength, his confidence....He is really putting it together. I like the way he is patient on offense and tends not to force things as much. If he can develop a step back 3, like Mel did, where he get get his own shot...he...

    Home court advantage in the Stu

    Litos called the Stu “the Animal”. Announcers would talk about it being a tough place to win. Have we lost our home court advantage?

    The Official Beat the Charleston Cougars in the Animal Thread

    One of the biggest problem with tonight’s game is giving up 80+ points. We could not stop their 2 key guys. Another is we could not take advantage of opportunities down the stretch...at one point I thought CoC was trying to give the game to us...missed free throws, jacking up threes when you...

    The Official Beat the Charleston Cougars in the Animal Thread

    After hearing the hype and watching him play lesser opponents I was very excited about Evans. Although I am still hopeful he can have a good year, it may benefit him and the team for him to come off the bench and let PJ or Crow start at the point. He needs to regroup and refocus. Too many...

    Michael Gilmore Deserves His Own Thread..

    If Gilmore comes back with Justin’s aggressive attitude and is ready to work and mix it up inside...he does have potential. I know he can do it...ie the Oklahoma game. Maybe Rhoades can bring it out of him.

    The Official Beat the GooMoos in The Animal Thread

    It is very difficult to win games consistently when you allow your opponent to score over 80 points, which we have done in 7 of our 14 losses(not counting a loss to Liberty). That being said, the George Mason game was very winnable...foul shots and better execution would have made the last play...

    Time to really mix things up?

    I'd be happy to see improvement on defensive fundamentals. -play tough, no easy layups -find a man and box out for the rebound -stay between your man and the ball -play defense with your feet and body, don't rely on your hands -communication...who are the defensive floor leaders? -never give up...

    THE OFFICIAL BEAT THE DC WILDCATS IN THE ANIMAL ON V-DAY THREAD

    Our guys played hard. Shots didn’t fall until late in the game. Our defense broke down in the second half. I’m proud of our effort. Ridiculous to judge Rhoades as a coach. Rebuilding needs to happen and will depend on his ability to recruit and develop players, as well as establish his...

    Mike Rhoades legacy

    I went to the rally when coach Rhoades and his family came back to Richmond. I teared up as I saw his kids and family came to the stadge at the SC. When Wade left, and Shaka before him left....I felt we needed someone to come who wanted to be here. We needed consistency. We needed a Coach...

    Reality check 2017-2018

    No judgement, just observations. New coach, 9 new players, 1 true point guard, 2 seniors + 1 senior transfer, 5 freshmen and 4 sophomores out of 13 players...we have one junior transfer. No depth at the 1. No scoring depth at the 5. We can score points. Teaching defense takes time. In...
