After shooting 55 percent from the floor, VCU men’s basketball defeated Illinois State University 96-58 in the season-opener at the Siegel Center on Friday night.
The CT has prepared a guide to all you need to know before Game Day.
The Siegel Center may play host to thousands of die-hard basketball fans for each home game, but before the clock starts and after the final buzzer sounds, fans give a welcomed influx of business to local restauranteurs.
The CT caught up with Rodney the Ram on the phone this week to hear his views on VCU’s competitive edge heading into the men’s basketball season, what it takes to be a mascot and what to look forward to in the season ahead.
With black and gold pom-poms in hand, VCU’s Gold Rush Dancers take the court at halftime of each home game with a burst of energy that further excites the already-rowdy crowd.
