The VCU men’s basketball team (2-0) won a close contest at John Paul Jones arena Tuesday night against the University of Virginia Cavaliers by a score of 59-56.
Several storylines can describe VCU’s 96-58 season-opening victory over Illinois State University, but arguably the biggest takeaway from Friday night’s win can be found in the Rams’ overwhelming display of depth.
The men’s basketball season does not open until November, but VCU fans can get an early look at the team on Oct. 13.
VCU power forward Jared Guest dislocated his ankle during practice Tuesday morning. The 6-foot-8 forward injured his ankle during a small group practice session and will be out for the next six to eight weeks.
