Richmond Spiders Basketball Schedule
The 2014 season has not been an easy one for the Richmond Spiders as they
have had to take on several ranked opponents, however they still have maintained a winning record and scored some big wins
including a home victory over UMass who was ranked #13 at the time. The Spiders have a lot of work left to do if they hope
to make it back to the NCAA Tournament but they stand a good chance of moving up the A-10 standings if they can win out.
second to last home game for the Richmond Spiders takes place on February 22nd against the LaSalle Explorers. Last year the
Explorers made it to the Sweet Sixteen but have been struggling this season and the Spiders need to win this game if they
hope to make the Tournament. The final home game of the season is a huge one. On March 6th the VCU Rams come to Robins Center,
and a win against a VCU team that is Tournament bound could really prove the Spiders' worth to the Selection Committee as
well as move the team up the A-10 standings at the end of the season.
