It is weird to feel this way but I kind of want them to beat Dayton on Saturday. It would drop UD back a game and VCU will have the opportunity to bring UR back a game on Tuesday. I bet the Vegas line will only be 5 points or less which ends up being a toss up.

I am interested to see what happens with the betting line for that one. I would say UR is probably around a 40% chance of pulling it out.
I don't see it. It doesn't help that UR runs some similar defensive schemes as VCU, but just in half speed.

It will be interesting. UR can score so it will be about their D.

PS-On Tuesday it will be about VCU's D and keeping turnovers to a minimum.

You might be right. The Haslametrics prediction for the game is Dayton 77, Richmond 70. Stats-wise it looks like it could be a close game.

It is an interesting proposition. On the one hand, if Dayton does not lose until they come to the Stu they'll be top 5, which would be an awesome event and a chance for VCU to do something historic. A win would go a long long way to ensuring a NCAA bid.

On the other hand, if UR beats them, Dayton will still be ranked and present a great opportunity and the two UR games would become much better NET opportunities. Really a no-lose proposition for VCU provided we take care of business.

I like no-lose propositions.
