Re: Around the League

I think these are two pretty darn good teams and I am so excited to have to watch VCU play them both at their place. Sarcasm alert.....

Re: Around the League

AA, I didn't see the LaSalle-SHU game, but I was told it wasn't quite as close as the score would seem to indicate. As the boxscore shows the Explorer starters played more minutes than did those from SHU. When the Pirate subs were in, LaSalle would inch closer with their first teamers.Good test for LaSalle. Don't worry, VCU wont play Seton Hall at Walsh (holds maybe 2500) located on Seton Hall's campus.I suspect the Pirate front line will give VCU fits. Can you sneak Mo back in?

Re: Around the League

Level up: College basketball coaches on the rise

Primed to hit the Power 5

Dan Hurley, Rhode Island


Hurley, 44, enters his sixth season at URI and has a chance to take the Rams to the NCAA tourney for the second consecutive year. Hurley's name carries some weight, and this season he has an opportunity to dominate the Atlantic 10 and be a fixture in the Top 25.


I had to bold one part for the Bona fans.

Mark Schmidt, St. Bonaventure

He has been in Olean, New York, for a decade and has been consistently competitive in one of the most difficult jobs in the A-10. Schmidt is regarded within the industry as a terrific X's and O's guy who develops talent and runs a clean program. Schmidt took the Bonnies to the NCAA tourney in 2012 and has a team that could make a return trip this season. If that happens, he could become a hot name in the offseason.

VCU plays them at the Prudential Center in Newark. My brother lives in Summit, NJ so I plan to go up for that game. Not sure it is the best idea but at least I will get to see him and his family.

Re: Around the League

So, who had exhibitions over the weekend?

VCU played DII CIAA Virginia Union who is only blocks away from VCU. It was a good night for the city with VCU and VUU legends in attendance. Nobody got hurt which was important and VCU did what they were supposed to do. They won easily. Two things they need to get right, help defense and defensive rebounding. I like that they have played two exhibitions and a scrimmage before the home opener on Friday. Almost time to get going.


Did any teams opt out of playing in front of crowds before their home opener?

Re: Around the League

Fordham smoked Fredonia Friday night. Shot a lot of threes forced a lot of turnovers. 20 assists on 28 made baskets.

I spent alot of time in Summit and surrounding environs. If time permits, have your brother take you to the Millburn Deli in the adjoining town of Millburn. Lunch time especially on Saturdays and Sundays is a scene. Their Sloppy Joe sandwiches aren't like those in Richmond.At that time of year, its take-out only.

Come on man. Why so passive aggressive? You know there is an update.
Robinson turned himself in on several misdemeanor charges.



Last week another Richmond fan put out the passive aggressive VCU comment but at least he said he was sad. Sheesh

Re: Around the League

AA, you're having a rough off season.
Hope the regular season perks you up.

Actually I was putting it as a bookmark until it affected his game by game status.
