This April, the VCU men’s golf team won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship for the first time in the program’s history.
The VCU men’s basketball program hired assistant coach David Cason to join Shaka Smart’s coaching staff on April 24. Cason spent the past three seasons in the same position at Vanderbilt University. He will fill the void left by former Rams assistant Mike Rhoades, who became the head coach at Rice University in March.
Around this time of year, analysts, players and coaches start throwing the word “destiny” around, suggesting teams can control their own fate on the court. In the case of the VCU men’s basketball team, that very well may be the case.
The VCU’s women’s basketball team improved its record to 20-7 on the season after beating St. Bonaventure University 74-57 on Feb. 19. But with just one game remaining on the schedule, head coach Marlene Stollings’ team is beginning to prepare for the Atlantic 10 tournament.
Since its historic run to the Final Four in 2010-11, the VCU men’s basketball team has jumped conferences and continued winning.
