Stats: https://vcuathletics.com/documents/2021/12/15//team_cume.pdf?id=2948

VCU is led by 6’6” Vince Williams (10.7 ppg & 5.6 reb), 6’4” Jayden Nunn (10.0 ppg), and 6’1” Ace Baldwin (10.0 ppg) who returned from injury on December 8. 6’4” KeShawn Curry (9.1 ppg), 6’8” Levi Stockard (7.8 ppg), and 6’9” Hason Ward (4.8 ppg) have started the majority of the games for VCU. 6’3” Marcus Tsohonis (5.3 ppg) has also started twice. Ten Rams play double figure minutes.

VCU averages 60.5 points per game while giving up 56.7. The Rams shoot 42.8% from the floor and 29.3% from 3. Opponents are shooting 36.4% from the field and 23.8% from 3. The Rams shoot 64.0% from the free throw line. VCU has been out rebounded their opponents by 4.9 boards per game. They turn opponents over to the tune of 18.5 per game while turning the ball over 16.3 times per game themselves.

The game is on MASN and ESPN+.

My prediction: VCU struggles to score, they are currently #338 (at the time of this post) in the NCAA in points per game. On the other hand they are #10 (at the time I posted) in points allowed. They aren’t pretty and really aren’t that good if you take care of the ball. Captain Obvious says we need to be prepared to handle pressure for 40 minutes. GMU 59 - VCU 55. We gut out a tough and UGLY road win.

What’s the difference between Siegel Canter and a cactus?
A cactus has its pricks on the outside.

Did you hear about the fire that destroyed 120,000 books at VCU’s library?
The real tragedy is that 119,000 of them hadn’t been colored yet.
