Two huge reasons VCU will be better than people think [INSIDER] - Lindy’s Sports has recently come out with their preseason rankings, placing Mike Rhoades’ first VCU team at a predicted fifth place finish in the A-10 standings. With so many new faces — 10 in total, only nine of which can play due to NCAA transfer rules sidelining Marcus Evans for the season — some uncertainty […]
VCU completes sweep, knocks out GMU, 71-60 - VCU completed a season-sweep over GMU with a 71-60 Quarterfinal win in today’s A10 tournament matchup. The Rams started the game on a 12-2 run before the Patriots answered with a 14-2 run of their own to take their first lead, 16-14. From there the game would see 9 ties and 10 different lead changes. […]
Game Preview: VCU v George Mason [INSIDER] - Today I write my game preview like a proud parent sending his kids off to college. After four seasons at VCU (and five years for both Mo Alie-Cox and Jordan Burgess following NCAA eligibility issues), this will hopefully be the last Siegel Center home game for five VCU seniors. I say hopefully of course because […]
Loss at Dayton highlights key Ram weakness [INSIDER] - After clawing back from down double-digits in front of 13,455 at UD Arena, the Rams simply could not come up with enough big plays late and watched Dayton claim an outright Atlantic 10 regular season title with last night’s 79-72 Flyers win. It was a classic combo of what has ailed VCU this season: slow […]
Game Preview: VCU at Dayton [INSIDER] - After letting a road opportunity get away from them this past Saturday, your VCU Rams will attempt a bounce-back W at Dayton in a game that comes with a very high degree of difficulty. The Rams defeated Dayton 73-68 back in January, UD’s last loss, the Flyers having reeled off eight straight wins to extend their […]
Game Preview: VCU v UMass [INSIDER] - The UMass Minutemen travel to Richmond today to take on the Rams and it appears as if they’ve brought their New England weather with them. The game has already sold out but the question will be: how many Rams make it out to fill those seats with the snow continuing to fall in Richmond? That […]
Game Preview: VCU at Duquesne [INSIDER] - The Rams picked up a big road win against George Mason to open Atlantic 10 play and will look to make it a 2-0 road start when VCU travels to Pittsburgh to take on the Dukes of Duquesne tonight. The black and gold are riding a five-game winning streak, Duquesne a four-game winning streak. One will […]
VCU sticks to the formula in defeat of Mason - Pound that thing in there. That was clearly the game plan heading into last night’s road test at George Mason. The Will Wade-led Rams have made it a point of emphasis to get high percentage shots and 14 games into this season are now getting over 55% of their scoring inside the three-point line, making VCU […]
Game Preview: VCU v Louisiana Monroe [INSIDER] - Did you know?: Of VCU’s last eight games, seven have come against Kenpom top-100 teams. You knew that, right? The Rams went 5-3 against that group. That’s quite the stretch. It’s been over a month since VCU played a sub-200 team, the last time out coming in the form of a 39-point home win over […]
Game Preview: VCU v Middle Tennessee State [INSIDER] - VCU gets their last shot at a resume-building non-conference win tonight when hosting the red-hot Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders. It’s a return game in a two-year series that saw a 62-56 Rams road win at MTSU at year ago. Both VCU and MTSU would go on to have great seasons with each advancing to […]
