Once upon a time, VCU was the newest kid (along with Butler) on the Atlantic 10 block. The Rams dramatic departure from the CAA was seen as a program-altering move for the better (update: definitely was).

It was VCU’s opponent Friday, the Dayton Flyers that officially welcomed VCU to the league on Jan. 9, 2013 at the Siegel Center. Backed by a “Stripe-the-Stu” promotion, the Rams eased past Dayton 74-62. It was the Rams’ first of 65 victories against A-10 opponents the last five years, most in the league.

As for this game, well we’ve got kids camped out in tents.
