JPR is a friend of mine. I used to do a volunteer reading program at Hillside Court way back in the day. Jesse was a kid in the group. I also shot sports so I saw him play football and basketball. Jesse is a great guy. He and Rob B work with kids these days. Great team. Oh and you spoke of Dom. Also, waaaaay back my brother lived on the southside when I was in my late 20s or early 30s...I don't remember my age. Ha! But I used to visit and on his culesac there was a hoop. I used to play one on one and HORSE with a kid. Later on that kid was a high school star and he came to VCU where he was all-CAA 1st team. Yep, it was Dom Jones.Dom Jones is still my all-time favorite. I think he would have gotten NBA looks if VCU was more known at the time.
I was at the game he referenced, playing Chris Paul and Wake Forest in Raleigh, NC. It was 8 on 5 with the refs and we lost by 1 (it was 4 before a meaningless 3 at the end) in what was essentially a home game. I loved that team, the guys you mentioned plus Nick George, a freshman JPR, and our 6’6” senior center, Troy Godwin.
Who knew a Paladin was a purple knight?Go Paladins! Finish strong…
They are the only Rams in the tournament so you can say VCU Rams now.GO RAMS OF RICHMOND! Bring some respect to the A-10.
Yeah it was Iowa State ugly on offense 😂That was rough. Terrible showing from us and a chance to win. But just way too sloppy.
And credit to them, their interior defense was really good
Three years. It makes no sense to me.Oh, yeah, that's awful...it's like four years, right? That's ridiculous...
Keep the faith. One day....Maybe so but every year we see some minor conference team become a Cinderella, and you have to ask why never the A10?
Whether it was a Loyola, St. Peter's, FDU, they're making splashes and we just get our teams in and lose chalk.
No curse. Just gotta play better. Don't forget La Salle's run.Maybe there's a curse? George Mason and VCU made the FF from the CAA.
I think only Dayton has made the S16 (and E8) since 2011.
You don't have to be old. They made the Sweet 16 in 2013.Am I old enough to remember LaSalle’s run? lol
