TOWSON, Md. – The Rams were in good spirits after coasting to a 67-42 win at Towson Wednesday night at the Towson Center, but probably none of them was as happy as sophomore Rob Brandenberg.
After nearly a month of rough nights, Brandenberg broke out of an extended shooting slump against the winless Tigers. Brandenberg scored VCU’s first eight points and finished with a game-high 16. The 6-foot-3 guard knocked down 6-of-11 field goals, including 3-of-7 from 3-point range. He also provided four steals.
“It felt good,” Brandenberg said. “I’ve been struggling the last few games, everybody knows. It just felt good to get in the swing of things and just knock down shots and get back to the type of basketball I play, which is making shots, attacking the rim.”
Entering Wednesday’s game, Brandenberg was 8-of-45 (18 percent) from the field in the last eight games, including 3-of-24 (13 percent) from 3-point range.
