With Sunday’s loss to Saint Joseph’s University in the Atlantic 10 tournament championship, the VCU men’s basketball team moved one step closer to losing two of its most prominent players.
Four members of the VCU men’s basketball team received awards last week from the Atlantic 10 for their play during the 2013-14 regular season.
Two weeks after the VCU men’s basketball team suffered a two-point loss at No. 12 Saint Louis University, the Rams defeated the Billikens 67-56 at the Siegel Center on Saturday, March 1.
Six players scored in double-figures and junior guard Briante Weber set the VCU career steals record as the Rams defeated cross-town rival University of Richmond 81-70 at the Siegel Center on Saturday, Feb. 1.
Head coach Shaka Smart’s team got off to a slow start at home, connecting on just 10 of 30 attempts in the first half, but stingy second-half defense helped secure VCU’s 14th win of the season.
