And the great Sonny Smith only won 9 more games the rest of the season.

I'm assuming the best start to a season was 1984-85 when we went 12-1 which included a victory over #16 Va Tech.
Yep and a bunch of other good wins. That was no cupcake pre season schedule.

Yes, doing a deep dive into the schedule they only played two teams who ended up with sub .500 records during that 12-1 run, ECU (7-21) and Charlotte (5-23). Couple of interesting nuggets: we played Dayton with a sophomore forward named Anthony Grant and played Auburn coached by Sonny Smith with future VCU assistant coach Gerald White running the point. That Auburn team also had future #4 picks in the NBA draft Chuck Person and Chris Morris.
