re: The VCU Rams

Yep. It's being touted as the best preseason tournament in the country this year. Louisville pulled out of Maui to play in it.

VCU will have some chances to notch up some signature wins against Duke, Louisville, Memphis, Missouri, Stanford, Minnesota, and UNI.

The first 4 were NCAA teams, the next 2 played for the NIT championship, and the last was also in the NIT. Solid field.

re: The VCU Rams

Hope you guys bring home some Big 6 scalps.

(and get together with the other Ram teams before A10 play and sort out the mascot confusion)

re: The VCU Rams

We play Memphis in the first round and then the winner/loser of Duke/Minnesota depending on how we fare against Memphis.

Either way we get a shot at a minimum of 2 Big 6 schools and probably a 3rd.

re: The VCU Rams

We also had one of our last remaining unreleased games leaked today. VCU will welcome Belmont to the Siegel Center December 1st. The Bruins went 27-8 and fell to Georgetown in the first (second) round of the NCAAs last year. We will make a return trip to Nashville next season.

RAMS TAKE ITALIAN TOUR OPENER OVER
AMICI DEL CAMPERO, 118-71



CASTELLANZA, Italy It looks like HAVOC translates to all languages.

Devastazione, the Italian word for HAVOC, was displayed in the opener of VCU Basketball's four-game Italian tour as the Rams forced 29 turnovers in a 118-71 victory over Amici Del Campero.

Leading the way with his all around play was rising sophomore Teddy Okereafor who poured in 17 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed seven rebounds in the victory. Five other Rams scored in double-figures on the evening.

VCU returns to the hardwood for the second game in Italy on Friday at 1 p.m. EST when they battle Basket Club Zeta Golubovci.

re: The VCU Rams

VCU won their 3rd game of their Italian tour today 85-47 over BC Atletas from Lithuania. This same opponent knocked down 16 3's to beat Georgia 94-90 and trailed Tennesssee by 3 at half-time before falling 82-68 earlier in the week.

The Rams beat Kosarkaski Klub Zeta from Montenegro by a score of 103-32 in the second game.

Encouraging but not entirely meaningful scores to be sure. It is nice to see the Rams man-handled a team that a couple of SEC squads had some trouble with though. I don't believe either UGA or Tennessee are supposed to be all that good this year though.

I don't know about UT, but Georgia is horrible.

re: The VCU Rams

They play Purdue tomorrow and Arkansas on the 14th, so that should help better gauge the level of Atletas' play.

RAMS MOVE TO 3-0 IN ITALY
WITH 85-47 DEFEAT OF LITHUANIAN CLUB



FLORENCE, Italy – While they've thoroughly enjoyed touring some Italy's most historic sites, the VCU basketball is taking time to make sure that the world knows all about HAVOC.

For the third time in as many games, the Rams forced 30+ turnovers en route to a 85-47 victory over Basket Club Atletas from the Lithuanian First Division.

Rising senior Troy Daniels earned player of the game accolades with 27 points, five rebounds, four assists and four steals. He knocked down eight three-pointers on the evening.

VCU plays their final game of their Italian tour in Rome on Monday evening.

re: The VCU Rams

Atletas fell to Arkansas 95-84 today: http://www.arkansasrazorbacks.com/Vi...DB_OEM_ID=6100

Atletas beat Georgia by 4, and Purdue by 3, lost to Arkansas by 11, and Tennessee by 14. VCU forced 30+ turnovers and won by 38.

It ultimately means nothing, but it's nice to look at if you're a VCU fan.

VCU also wrapped up its Italy tour with a 106-44 win over All-Star Italy to go to 4-0 on the trip. Rising sophomore Jarred Guest was the player of the game with 19 points, 9 boards, 6 steals, and 2 blocks.
