Re: Game Thread: VCU @ SLU (Tuesday 2/19/13)

I would say there's an argument if the home games had been close. But SLU is just killing good teams at home. This is a complete domination of VCU. Maybe it'd be the reverse on the road, but I just don't see them getting dominated like this. They appear to be playing better than anyone right now.

Busses being warmed up as we speak. Excellent win and comprehensive beatdown. What role did Shaka's ugly shirt and tie combination play in this? We may never know.

St. Louis is good this year. Crews deserves national coach of the year.

How about no. The players are very talented and experienced. They were picked 2nd in the preseason poll. If they win the regular season title then he deserves A-10 COY, that's it.

Alternate universe. Only explanation.

Actually, anytime a team shoots 55.6% from the field it is really tough to win against them. The fact that SLU was able to force overtime was surprising.

Re: Game Thread: VCU @ SLU (Tuesday 2/19/13)

I'm just wondering when the havoc starts?? Is it at the airport on the way home or what????

Great game by our Bills. I kept saying OH MY GOD to my 14 yearold son as VCU missed shot after shot in the first half. Great defense by the Bills but man we got all the rolls, breaks, whatever, though not all the calls.

VCU was tough in the second half but all odf our gurds were money against the press except our lone senior for some reason.

Jordair Jett was a man among boys. Remember that name this March......

Re: Game Thread: VCU @ SLU (Tuesday 2/19/13)

Gotta admit I'm coming around to Crews as COY. I was certain that SLU would be fourth or fifth without RM.

You are forgetting the Explorers who have already beaten 2 of these teams and play SLU on the last day of the regular season. Maybe that will help you rank them.

Re: Game Thread: VCU @ SLU (Tuesday 2/19/13)

Congrats to SLU for just putting it on us. It was one of those nights as fan you hope doesn't happen to your team but inevitably is always does. SLU made EVERYTHING VCU made nothing. I was a little frustrated and confused by some of the calls,particularly in the paint but that certainly was not the determining factor. Not much you can do when the bounces aren't going your way. Nice job, you punked us. Good luck on Friday at Butler.

Yes Tre Graham dropped his shoulder. However he wasn't even moving and Ellis took the contact and flew back.

Agreed. LaSalle is right there with SLU, VCU, and Butler. They may have started slow this year, but they have three high-quality, experienced guards in Duren, Galloway, and Mills; a nice scoring guard off the bench, a very good athletic forward, a 7 footer in the middle who can set (moving) screens and rebound, and a nice wing who can defend and make threes. LaSalle doesn't defend like SLU, but their guards can pressure the ball.

I think right now, I'd say SLU is playing the best. I'd put VCU second, despite this blip. I'd put LaSalle third, and Butler fourth. But it's very close.
