Continue reading...VCU’s win over GW paired with a UMass loss last night put the Rams in sole possession for eighth in the current A-10 standings. The Rams are currently favored to finish in that position by kenpom, a predicted 9-9 A-10 record. Pomeroy has the Rams a favorite at home against Duquesne, but with the Rams recent roster news, that is certainly far from a gimme against the 20-win Dukes that sit 10-6 in conference play at the moment, then sees VCU losing at Davidson, a Wildcats team VCU made easy work of earlier this season, but a squad that hasn’t lost a home game since January 14 against Richmond, their only home loss of the season.
Owning a new head-to-head tie-breaker over GW and sitting two games ahead of the Colonials in the standings, the Rams can finish no lower than ninth — that is no brag, it pains me to type that — so are currently staring down an Atlantic 10 path that would pit the Rams against the No.4 nationally ranked Dayton Flyers.
