0-4-jequanRemember that time the VCU Basketball team was down with 0.4 seconds left and practically no hope? Yeah, that was something, eh? No problem for Will Wade, JeQuan Lewis and company. VCU has scored two of college basketball’s most improbable victories this season in its last two games, including Wednesday’s 54-53 win at George Washington. If you haven’t heard about it by now, then seriously, what have you been doing with your life?

Tell you what, if you’re hearing it for the first time or if you just want to relive the moment, listen to Robby Robinson and Mike Litos call it on Ram Radio.

In other news, Briante Weber is trying to make the best of his 10-day contract with Golden State. He recently sat down to talk about it HERE.

Jamie Skeen

Former Ram Jamie Skeen scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a win over the D-League select team Saturday.

The NBA Summer League finished up for Troy Daniels, Jamie Skeen and the Charlotte Bobcats¬† last night in a 75-67 loss to the Golden State Warriors (and ODU alum Kent Bazemore) in a semifinal matchup. After neither Daniels or Skeen played much (or not at all) in the Bobcats first three games in Las Vegas, both former Rams got plenty of run in the final three. After posting a double-double Saturday, Skeen wasn’t able to knock down shots last night. Daniels fared better, scoring 13 points while knocking down 3-of-5 from three.

It’s hard to say if either showed enough to merit an invitation to training camp, but even if Charlotte declines, another team could step in. Both Daniels and Skeen had their moments; Daniels not only hit 42 percent of his threes in Vegas, but he even put the ball on the floor and got the the rim a couple of times. However, his 6-of-24 shooting from 2-point range could be a problem. Skeen, meanwhile, looked lighter and eager to shoot the three, but also rebounded the ball pretty well. If Skeen, whose biggest problem as it relates to the NBA is that he’s always been a bit of a power forward in a small forward’s body, was hoping to show teams he can play the three, I think he made a decent case.
