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.

VCU’s thorough thrashing of La Salle Sunday – the final margin was 90-52, but somehow it felt worse – was just what the doctor ordered after a tough loss at the buzzer at Fordham. I mean, it’s not what an actual doctor, Dr. John Giannini, head coach of La Salle, ordered. It was actually the opposite of what he would’ve ordered, but presumably, other doctors would’ve ordered…you know what? Let’s just watch the video.

On deck: George Washington, which ended VCU’s 12-game win streak last year here on the Siegel Center floor. VCU did exact revenge in the form of a 69-65 win in Washington D.C. near the end of the regular reason. Either way, this series is turning into a pretty good rivalry, and Wednesday’s game should be another high-intensity match-up.

The big news out of today’s Will Wade press conference is the news that freshman wing De’Riante Jenkins will miss 6-8 weeks with a broken bone in his foot, an injury he suffered in the Rams’ win at George Mason on Dec. 30. Despite the injury, VCU will turn its attention to Duquesne. The Rams will meet the Dukes in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

After spending last season grinding as an undrafted rookie in the NBA D-League, Treveon Graham – the second-leading scorer in VCU history – made the Charlotte Hornets roster out of training camp this fall. Tre hasn’t played a ton yet, but if his history is any indication, it’ll only be a matter of time. Treveon Graham may never jump out of the gym, but he knows how to work.
