3 thoughts on VCU’s win over Davidson

VCU keeps winning games, and Ross keeps having thoughts.

1. Ol’ Melvin One-Leg

We all bought into what [Mel] said and followed his lead even though he wasn’t able to physically lead tonight. Korey Billbury

After tweaking his ankle at the end of yesterday’s game, Melvin Johnson saw limited but hobbly action. Luckily, he still drained a couple of threes to get things going in the first half. On the fashion tip, he was sporting some new, olive-green high tops that the team had to buy at 10:00 AM this morning–a little extra padding around the bum ankle. He’ll be available tomorrow, but we’ll see how well he can keep up and how well he can perform on defense.

2. How Stella got her groove back

And by Stella I mean VCU and by groove I mean 3-point shooting percentage. Last night the Rams shot a woeful 1-16 from beyond the arc, but tonight they turned that frown upside down and ended 10-25. Wade’s group has been winning games without the three ball, so when it starts to fall…watch out.

3. NCAA tournament on deck

Yeaaaah…our numbers are pretty good, but I don’t want to leave it to chance. Will Wade

With the win, Coach Wade feels like the Rams are in the NCAA tournament, but, of course, he’d rather not leave it to chance. VCU has appeared in the last five conference title games, which is incredible, and now they’ll make it six. That’s quite an accomplishment for the first-year coach considering all the transfers and turmoil of this year’s off season.
