VCU, the A-10’s current No.1 at 3-0, heads to St. Bonaventure, the A-10 defending champ and preseason pick to repeat, for a Frid-A10 rematch between last season’s tourney title championship teams. The Rams are red-hot as winners of their last seven while St. Bonaventure narrowly avoided a three-game losing streak in what would have been brutal fashion, having to come back from down double-digits against La Salle, a game after almost a month-long COVID pause that followed the Bonnies’ 37-point loss to Virginia Tech.

A QUICK LOOK AT ST. BONAVENTURE
If there’s a team in the Atlantic 10 that’s easy to understand who they are this season, it’s St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies return all five starters from last year’s Atlantic 10 regular season and tournament champion team, a starting group that accounted for over 90% of available minutes played on last year’s team in what was and what remains one of the shortest benches in America.
