I was bored so I wanted to check VCU's A10 tournament record after I heard the postgame press conference moderator mention that VCU was 6-0 in A10 semifinal games.
VCU A10 Tournaments:
2012-13...VCU's first season in the league. Played against SLU in Finals. Lost to the Jordair Jett crew. I remember Evans & a blue haired Aussie.
2013-14...VCU played St. Joe's Finals. Galloway busted 19 & a young Bembry showed flashes w/ 13 pts. Roberts had a good game too. Martelli played two on the bench. Neither scored.
2014-15...VCU's fan favorite Briante Weber went down in the reg. season with an ACL injury. VCU rebounded & beat Dayton for the Championship. Treveon Graham had 20 & 13. (Shaka $ to Tejas)
2015-16...Here come Martelli again. St Joe's wins in Finals. Bembry has a 30 piece with Miles busting 26. They slashed the press with rim runners. (Strong ass offer Will Wade's 1st season)
2016-17...The rise of Hurley season. Terrell & EC Matthews busted VCU up in Finals. Again, these two slashed the press w/Dowtin leading the charge. (season note: Archie Miller $ to Indiana)
2017-18...Coach Rhoades takes over. Entire incoming class jets. VCU loses to #25 Rhody in Quarterfinals. Three headed monster of Matthews, Terrell, Dowtin too much. (Hurley $ to UConn)
2018-19...Rhody again in a close Quarterfinal match-up. Marcus Evans goes down early with a great early start for VCU. Santos-Silva w/22 & 22 not enough. Dowtin w/22 pts.
2019-20...COVID 🤮 VCU/UMass on the floor ready for the tip. Game & tournament canceled. Year of isolation & heartache begins. COVID decides to remain until this day. (Silva to Tejas Tech)
2020-21...A10 Tournament is chalk....#1 St Bona v. #2 VCU...young VCU squad & future is bright.
~VCU has made the finals in 6 out of 8 times since joining the A10 (9 years in the league-one tournament cancellation). Not a good Final record though: 1-4
~In the 9 years since Joining the A10 VCU has made the NCAA 6 times in 9 years. Hopefully it will be 7 out of 9. Last year no NCAA tourney so it would be 7 out of 8 while in the A10.
Going back to CAA it would be beginning with Capel to Grant to Shaka to Wade to Rhoades...11 out of 16 NCAA bids (actually 11 out of 15 because no NCAA tourney 2019-20).
