After weeks of the media camping in tents outside the Basketball Development Center, we finally let those scribes in for some water and nourishment. We even gave them a few minutes to chat with Will Wade and the guys, since the season is just around the corner. Afterwards, we banished the media to the loading dock of the E.J. Wade Arena, where they’ll be forced to wait until Nov. 4.
If you’re both enthusiastic about the prospect of Mo Alie-Cox playing football someday, but also less enthusiastic about hearing about it all season don’t wor…just kidding. You’re going to hear about it 182 more times from now until April. Don’t fret. That just means Mo’s a really talented fella. If he breaks a few tackles down the road, I’ll be thrilled. In the meantime, I hope he breaks a few rims first.

Whether you are ready for it or not, we are hurtling towards basketball season. I’m under the impression that VCU fans are generally always ready. Practice is underway, and we caught up with Coach Will Wade and Mo Alie-Cox to find out how preparations are going for the 2016-17 season. T-minus 22 days until the exhibition game with Queens.

Viral video time. This one comes via VCU University Relations, but there’s plenty of Athletics cameos in here, from Mo Alie-Cox, to Baseball Coach Shawn Stiffler to Pavarotti. Justin Timberlake has created a monster. Expect more of these.

Greetings from Oklahoma City! The Rams met with the media today and cranked out an open practice at Chesapeake Arena as they prepare for Oregon State Friday at 1:30. Side note. I keep having to remind myself that the game is at 12:30 here in the central time zone. I hope I don’t miss it.

Join us, if you will, on a “Cribs”-inspired tour of VCU’s Basketball Development Center with Torey Burston, Mo Alie-Cox, Camille Calhoun and GG Goodhope.

My only comment is, what a college basketball game. This job is pretty fun some days.

We’re taught to always think about graduation as a late spring/early summer thing. But! The academic calendar runs all year. There’s also a fall commencement, and seven VCU student-athletes will walk in those ceremonies on Dec. 12, including a couple of recognizable Rams’ hoops stars, Mo Alie-Cox and Melvin Johnson.
On Thursday, VCU took a moment to honor its fall graduates and to think about what it all means.

Not all of you get a chance to see these interviews that run on our pregame show on CBS 6.3, so I wanted to make sure you had an opportunity. I chatted with Melvin Johnson and Mo Alie-Cox last week briefly, where we discussed the ODU rivalry, Mo’s slimmer frame and Melvin’s love of playing in New York.
