Men’s Basketball and indoor Track have had early success in the season. Here’s an updated list of events to look forward to this week, with a mix of non-conference and conference matches.   

Men’s Basketball – Feb. 2

The black and gold defeated the Dayton Flyers in Dayton, Ohio on Jan. 5. The highly challenging contest was back and forth, but the Rams prevailed. 

On Feb. 2, the Rams will host a rematch against the Flyers at the Siegel Center. The Rams are coming off a victory against formerly nationally ranked Davidson. It should be a good one in the “Stu.”

Women’s Basketball – Feb. 2

The Women’s Capital City Classic against the Richmond Spiders will be held at The University of Richmond’s Robins Center. The rivalry between the Rams and the Spiders is still alive and well, as a loss against the Spiders ended the Rams’ four-game winning streak last season.

Women’s Tennis – Feb. 4

The reigning Atlantic 10 women’s tennis champions will face the Liberty University Flames from Lynchburg.

The Rams defeated the Flames 7-0, according to the Liberty University athletics, last season on April 7. VCU looks to defeat the Flames again, this time at VCU’s Thalhimer Tennis Center.

Men’s Tennis – Feb. 6

The four-time Atlantic 10 champions will go against nationally ranked No. 11 Kentucky Wildcats. The black and gold were unable to face the Wildcats last season due to COVID-19 cancellations, according to VCU Athletics.  

Indoor Track – Feb. 4-5

From Feb. 4-5, the indoor track program will head to Virginia Tech for the Doc Hale Elite Meet in Blacksburg, Virginia. After five successful meets, both programs look to further improve against multiple teams in Blacksburg.
