    I wish it could be the Siegel Center and not the Arthur Ashe Center (which is falling apart) but hey, it's the TBT in Richmond, I'm not complaining. Awesome news!

    Heck, VUU's gym is a better choice than the Ashe Center if they don't want the regional to be at VCU.

    Have you ever taken a good look at Barco-Stevens Hall? The bleachers are behind the support beams. Who wants to be looking around a support beam all game long?

    Like I said, the Ashe Center will be fine if they don't want to have the regional at VCU.

    Well regardless of how good or bad Ashe Center is (Make sure you bring fans).... No Reason RAMNATION CAN'T SELL THESE GAMES OUT!!!

    Also... how long before someone complains about "Home court advantage" :lol:

    The Ashe center doesn't seem any worse than the Grady Cole Center in charlotte where they held games previously.
