Re: VCU vs. Xavier

My point is very simple. VCU has a very tough road stretch, starting with St. Louis. VCU will lose on the road to St. Louis and then will lose to Xavier. There is no way they beat X at home. It will not happen. The Havoc defense is a form of pressure defense. St. Louis will grind them down. VCU will not recover by the time they play Xavier.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

The last I checked, VCU is getting clobbered by St. Louis. St. Louis is shooting 61% from the field and is beating VCU by 19. The heavy travel schedule and the away games are going to hurt VCU when they play X. Plus X is a better program, with a better coach. VCU will not beat Xavier.

At this point, I think VCU can just rest their starters. This game is over.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

IMHO. SLU's victory over VCU offers a blueprint for Xavier. I understand that the best way to prepare for the Havoc defense is to practice with 6 or 7 players on the court playing against our starting 5. Chris Mack is a very good coach, it will be interesting to see how he fares against Shaka Smart.

Agreed. Make everything and hope VCU misses everything. lol

All credit to SLU as I've said in the game thread. It was a perfect sh*tstorm for both teams. Unfortunately mine was knee deep in it.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

Though Xavier played tonight and has to travel back to Cincy, I still think the travel schedule favors Xavier. VCU has 2 tough road games in a row- SLU and X. I can't see how VCU wins this game at Cintas. They seemed to be really tired on Tuesday against SLU. Chris Mack is a great coach, I expect him to outcoach Shaka Smart this Saturday. It should be a great game- welcome to the A-10 VCU.

It would be news to the team if they're travelling back from Fordham tonight, unless Fordham moved to Rhode Island.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

VCU got mauled by SLU, but that doesn't change the fact that they're a good team. Were I Xavier, I would have preferred to see them coming in off a win. They're definitely going to come in to the X game angry. I could see this one going either way. X has been very good at Cintas during their conference slate, and Havoc seems to rely on friendly officiating, which is rare on the road in the A10. Should be a competitive and physical affair.

We probably were a little tired with SLU being our 3rd game in 6 days.

I don't think there is any way VCU wins this game against Xavier. Mack is too good of a coach and the Rams have had and will have a brutal schedule. How often can a team go to the well and use anger to overcome fatigue and the challenges of an A-10 schedule. Guard play in the A-10 is too good. VCU will not be able to waltz in and take over Cintas, like this was the CAA. This is going to be a brutal dogfight.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

We are going to have to play a lot better to have a shot against VCU.
But it would be nice to be 3 for 3 against Rams this year.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

X can win if they play the URI/Butler defense. However, that doesn't seem to come around much this yr. and offense still flat most of the time. If it comes down to last second heroics, we lose.
