Preview: 2013-14 (Freshman)
VCU’s first commitment in the 2013 class, Lewis spent most of his high school career as an underrated prospect. ESPN finally made him a 4-star recruit at the start of the summer; an honor he deserved. In addition to being a talented point guard, Lewis is the all-time leading scorer at Dickson County High School. Lewis scored 50 points in November of 2012 in the Holiday Classic in Missouri. Armed with speed and a consistent 3-point shot, he has the tools to be VCU’s best scoring point guard since Joey Rodriguez or maybe even Eric Maynor.
Point guard is the Rams’ biggest question mark this season. Rob Brandenberg and Melvin Johnson could both see minutes backing up Briante Weber at the one, but JeQuan Lewis’s maturation has the potential to solidify the position.
On March 16th, 2011, VCU topped USC in Dayton before storming to the Final 4. Is a dominant victory in the same stadium what the Rams need this season?
It took overtime, but VCU battled back from a 25-11 deficit to top EKU 71-68 Thursday night.
Sunday night, VCU ended an NCAA-leading 23-game home winning streak
It’s been a crazy year for VCU’s personnel. Five players have left the 27 win 2012-13 Rams, but VCU returns many of their key pieces while also adding seven very talented new players.
Wednesday was the first day of the early signing period and all three of VCU’s 2013 recruits inked their commitments with letters of intent.
