I am pretty sure that since joining the A10 VCU has the most conference wins of any team along with the most NCAA invitations.
I go to the old school A10 message board and this was just posted by a Dayton fan...I put VCU at the top of this list. The Rams lose Vince Williams and a couple of other starters, but Ace returns, and Rhoades added the best overall recruiting class with two 4 star HS players. VCU recruits at the top of the A10 and has a winning culture, so I never count them out.
Most A10 fans simply know that VCU is going to be near the top and it will continue to be that way. We gotta support the team at home to ensure VCU maximizes home court advantage.
Interesting comparison between Dayton and VCU since VCU joined the A-10.
Dayton is 211-102 overall since VCU joined and 121-53 in the A-10. Dayton has 3 A-10 regular season first place finishes and 4 NCAA Tournament appearances. Anthony Grant has not taken Dayton to the NCAA Tournament, although, Dayton would have been a #1 seed in 2020 had the NCAA Tournament not been cancelled.
VCU is 231-100 overall since VCU joined and 121-51 in the A-10. VCU has 2 A-10 regular season first place finishes and 7 NCAA Tournament appearances.
FYI. Since joining the A-10 in 2014, Davidson is 121-51 overall and 91-46 in the A-10. Davidson has 2 A-10 regular season first place finishes and 3 NCAA Tournament appearances.
VCU and Dayton are clearly the flagship schools in the A-10 since VCU joined followed by Davidson, since Davidson joined. The jury will be out on what Davidson does going forward since Bob McKillop retired and his son has now taken over.
