When NBA Commissioner David Stern announced the 15th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft in late June, it was former VCU star forward Larry Sanders’ face that was shown on TVs across the country as the selection.
Halfway through the conference slate two weeks ago, VCU was riding high on the back of an 11-1 start that saw the Rams storm to first place. Their opponents over those first 12 matches however, were a combined .500 and included the two statistically worst teams in the league.
Eight days after VCU pounded a season high four homeruns and 11 runs in a win against VMI, the Rams completed the season sweep of the Keydets with a 7-3 win at The Diamond Wednesday night.
Deep in conversation late one night in February, VCU men’s soccer’s newest men in charge, head coach Dave Giffard and assistant coach Brett Teach, could not help but laugh at their current role reversals.
