Three players from the VCU men’s basketball team were honored for their play during the 2013-14 season last week. Senior Juvonte Reddic joined juniors Treveon Graham and Briante Weber in being distinguished as some of Virginia’s top college basketball players.
Redshirt senior Terrance Shannon left the VCU men’s basketball team for personal reasons, according to a statement released by VCU Athletics on Feb. 18.

My colleague, Daniel E. Perdue, an assistant professor in the Religious Studies Program (Buddhist Studies) died on Nov. 18 and was buried on Nov. 23. He had been ill for longer than a year, finally succumbing to pancreatic cancer, in spite of radical surgery (Whipple procedure), radiation, chemotherapy, acupuncture, and a host of “natural” remedies.
