Rams fall short in comeback against Longhorns, 71-67 - It seemed like today has been circled on everyones calendar for years. We all knew tonight would one day come–Texas was coming to Richmond. The Longhorns wasted no time in jumping out to a 12-2 start in Coach Shaka Smarts return to Richmond. Jonathan Williams would be the lone Ram to score in the opening […]
Game Preview: VCU v Michigan [INSIDER] - VCU moved to 3-2 on the season after cruising to victory in last night’s Maui Invitational win over Cal. The competition stiffens today when the Rams will take on top-50 Michigan for a chance to leave the island with not only a winning record, but with a quality win as well. VCU (3-2) MICHIGAN (4-1) […]
Jenkins shines as VCU defeats Cal, 83-69 - De’Riante Jenkins was one of VCU’s highest rated recruits ever when the South Carolina native committed to VCU and he reminded Ram fans of how he earned that impressive ranking Tuesday night, leading the Rams with an impressive 27-point, 11-rebound double-double in the VCU’s 83-69 Maui Invitational win over the Cal Bears out of the […]
VCU cruises to victory in home opener, 94-65 - VCU (1-0) opened it’s 50th season with Coach Mike Rhoades first win as its head coach as the Rams defeated Grambling State, 94-65. The night also marked the 100th consecutive sell-out for the E.J. Wade Arena, pre-dating the 2011 Final Four campaign. After missing the first two exhibition games, Justin Tillman showed no signs of […]
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 […]
