Rams K.O. the Knights, 96-67



http://www.vcuathletics.com/sports/m...21229_rwxl.xml

After 8 days off the Rams were looking to get back into the groove and close out the 2012 calendar year with a win against visiting Farleigh Dickenson University. The Knights from Madison, N.J. could have watched all the tape they could but it wasn’t going to stop the Rams from dismantling the team from the Northeast Conference, 96-67.

Re: The VCU Rams

Rams hold off Lehigh, McCollum a non-factor


VCU fans were eager to welcome the Rams back to the Siegel Center after a historic beat down of East Tennessee State on Wednesday. VCU would also be welcoming the nations leading scorer in Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum (25.7 ppg). Along with 7000 plus fans, there were 32 NBA scouts in attendance to see what McCollum could do.

Unfortunately for them they didn’t get much of a show. VCU held him to 0 field goals and just 4 free throws as McCollum would only play the first half due to injury.

Re: The VCU Rams

It is fairly easy to hold a guy to 4 free throws when he breaks his foot and doesn't play for 75% of the game.

Re: The VCU Rams

The Flyers will be the first to experience havoc at the Seigel Center as a conference mate. Be ready for 40 minutes of havoc, true in name and style.

Actually he played all but 5 minutes of the first-half and was 0-5 from the field before he left the game.

He would have helped Lehigh and for our sake I'm glad he didn't play because we may have lost with him in there.

They actually played much better without him than they were with him in the game though.

He's a great player and here's to wishing him a full and speedy recovery.

Re: The VCU Rams

VCU ground the Flyers, Get first A10 win


Big night of firsts for Ram fans as VCU kicks off conference play in the Atlantic 10 against the Dayton Flyers. This also marks the first time since the 1984-1985 season that VCU has earned themselves a place in the top 25 USA/Coach’s poll in the regular season. But most importantly, it marks VCU’s first win against a fellow A10 team as the Rams won, 74-62.

Re: The VCU Rams

GRAHAM, RAMS BATTLE THEIR WAY TO 11TH STRAIGHT WIN


Beyond the Boxscore

Graham's 17 points marked his 10th straight double-figure scoring game and pushed his team lead to 15.5 points per game.

The win also secured the second straight season with an 11-game win streak for the Rams and ninth overall double-digit win streak in the program's history.

VCU has now won 10 of its last 11 true road games, dating back to last January.

VCU remains just one of the just 11 schools in the country to not allow an opponent to score more than 70 points in a game this year.
Up Next

VCU returns home to the Verizon Wireless Arena at the Stuart C. Siegel Center on Thursday in a nationally-televised battle against preseason A10 favorite, Saint Joseph's. Tip time on CBS Sports Network is set for 9 p.m.

Re: The VCU Rams



Jay Bilas picks VCU as his under the radar team nationally, even going as far as saying they could go to the Final Four or even win the whole thing. High praise.

Re: The VCU Rams

VCU was talked about on ESPN College Gameday yesterday with Jay Bilas, Digger Phelps, and Jay Williams. They all agreed that VCU is a special team that is underrated. Bilas also mentioned that we are no longer a mid-major because we play in the A-10 for those of you who are gung-ho about the 'mid-major' label being applied to the conference. He also said we had a shot to win it all.

It came out in that segment that Coach Calipari at Kentucky said he thought VCU can win a national championship because of the things we do. Very nice pub on national television.

Here's the clip:

Re: The VCU Rams

I'm glad Xavier gets VCU at home. As bad as Xavier was against UC's press, I'd hate to see Xavier have to go on the road and face a much better team that is going to pressure all over the place. It could have been ugly. At home I figure we at least have a shot (though probably not a particularly good one).

Re: The VCU Rams

Yeah that'll be a tough game. One that I hope we can pull out, but X's tough home court reputation precedes them. Our last stretch is brutal @ Saint Louis, @Xavier, Butler, Richmond, and @ Temple. We'll find out just how good we are in that stretch.

Here's more love from ESPN's Andy Katz who says to buy stock in VCU and predicting us to be in the Sweet Sixteen:

Re: The VCU Rams

From Jon Rothstein:http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2013/01/...s-notebook-24/

Quote:
3. BUTLER AND VCU LOOK LIKE THE CLASS OF THE ATLANTIC 10

It’s only been a few games but right now the two high-profile additions to this conference look like they’re a cut above the rest. The Bulldogs won at two difficult road venues in Saint Joseph’s and Dayton, while VCU beat the Flyers at home and then won at St. Bonaventure. We’ll know more about both these teams this week. Butler will likely be without Rotnei Clarke due to a neck injury for Wednesday’s game vs. Richmond and VCU will have a tall task when they host Saint Joseph’s on Thursday night at the Siegel Center.
Quote:
3. SAINT JOSEPH’S VOYAGE TO VCU WITHOUT HALIL KANACEVIC

Shaka Smart said a big reason why he wanted to join the Atlantic 10 was because it would create more higher profile opportunities for the players in his program. The Rams can’t ask for a better opportunity than the one they’re going to have on Thursday night at the Siegel Center. Saint Joseph’s was picked in the preseason to win the conference and while they’ve battled injuries and other issues early, the Hawks still have the talent to beat VCU on their home floor. Saint Joseph’s though, will be shorthanded as they’ll be without valuable forward Halil Kanacevic, who will miss the next few games due to a death in his family. Without Kanacevic, we’re really skeptical if Phil Martelli’s team has the depth to withstand the Rams’ vicious pressure.

Re: The VCU Rams

Seth Davis has put VCU as #25 on his AP ballot and here's his explanation of the ballot with regards to the Rams:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/col...?sct=uk_t11_a5

Quote:
Wichita State's loss opened up a spot for VCU. I have been trying the last couple of weeks to shoehorn VCU onto my ballot. It has been hard because to this point, the Rams' best win came on a neutral court over Memphis, and that was nearly two months ago. Still, there's something to be said for winning 11 in a row. Plus, the Rams don't just pass the eye test, they ace it.
