VCU Rams1


Meet Matt Greene, Manny Juranis, Gary Watkins and Brian Curran, also known as ‘The Sons of Shaka’.

On Jan. 31, I got to hang out with some of VCU’s most fervent – and entertaining – basketball fans, The Sons of Shaka. Following VCU’s Final Four run in 2011, Manny Juranis, Gary Watkins, Matt Greene and Brian Curran decided they needed to take their fandom to the next level. They started dressing up for big games in elaborate, coordinated costumes like professional wrestlers, referees, players and the like. On this particular day, they showed up as KISS.
