Virginia Commonwealth Rams Schedule
In recent years the VCU Rams have established themselves as a national power
under the guidance of coach Shaka Smart who regularly eschews offers from bigger schools to stay in Richmond and passes on
his dedication and intensity to the team every season. As the 2014 regular season draws to a close, the Rams sit comfortably
in second place in the A-10 and ready to make their fifth straight NCAA Tournament. Of course there are still big games coming
up including the A-10 Tournament.
VCU has the opportunity to secure a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament by winning
their remaining A-10 games. The biggest game remaining on the VCU schedule is a home game against the #10 Saint Louis Billikens
who are so far undefeated in conference play. The two teams locked horns on February 15th and VCU lost a tight 64-62 game
in Saint Louis, so the home court advantage at the Siegel Center could be just enough to push the Rams ahead to a victory.
The final home game of the season takes place on March 8th against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies, a team who will be looking
to win as many games as they can in the regular season to try to make their way into the Tournament. Be sure to head out to
one of the Rams' remaining home games to show your support as they prepare for March Madness.
Rams are gaining a reputation as a force in this conference more and more with every passing season, and you'll see what all
of the buzz is about if you get out and see the Rams in person. The Rams play their home games at the Verizon Wireless Pavilion
at the Stuart C. Siegel Center, a place that always has plenty of excitement as dedicated Rams' fans routinely show up to
demonstrate their team passion. This is a team that has been in the middle one of exciting game after another over the years
in the A-10, a top-tier conference with other talented squads like Dayton, UMASS, Richmond and many others. With another team
that can do a little bit of everything, guaranteeing an exciting brand of basketball that will have everyone talking around
town, the Rams are looking to light up the scoreboard and give their fans another memorable season of action. This year the
team is being led by junior guard Treveon Graham who leads the team in scoring and is second on the team in assists. We all
know guard play is of utmost importance in the NCAA Tournament and the VCU Rams appear poised to do well in the Big Dance
behind the stellar play of Graham.
Spectator sports aren't exactly anything new, as people
have been enjoying big events for many, many years. Dating all the way back to the original Greek Olympics and Roman chariot
racing, people have been pouring in by the tens of thousands to be a part of spectator sports, and that's not something likely
to change any time in the near future. Though things are quite a bit different these days, there are still plenty of great
events that you know you'll want to be a part of, with college basketball routinely ranking among the most exciting sporting
events around the world. But if you've never seen the action first-hand, you simply have no idea what you've been missing.
There is something about being in the stands when the game is on the line and the VCU Rams are digging in, but that's not
something that you're going to figure out sitting at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like. Come out
and see all of the highlight-reel dunks, spectacular blocked shots and nail-biting moments that you'll be talking about long
after it's all over. As soon as you're there soaking up the vibes of a big game, you'll be glad that you're not sitting anywhere
else, because you'll be in store for a sporting experience that will have you coming right back to the arena.
the pros are great to watch too, but there's something extra special about watching players when it's only team pride on the
line, and as soon as you get out to a big VCU Rams game, you'll definitely figure out what all the excitement about this program
is about. College basketball is one of those sports that you have to see first-hand if you want to have any chance at figuring
out how special it can be, and as soon as you're there you'll never want to follow the action on that smart phone ever again.
Virginia Commonwealth Rams Trivia
Did you know that VCU has made it to the Big Dance each of the last four years?
the Rams have really been coming on as of late, and their fans have been treated to some amazing seasons that have seen them
finish by going up against the top teams in the NCAA Tournament. There has never been a better time to put down the remote
and head out to see a great game loaded with heart-pounding action as the Rams look to not just make it back to the Big Dance
but to make a run toward a title.
Virginia Commonwealth Rams History
The Rams have been around for a very
long time, though it really all started coming together in 1980 with their first NCAA Tournament appearance. After five appearances
in the Tournament in the 80s, another in the 90s and a bunch more since then, the Rams have become icons of the local community
around Richmond. As soon as you're there, you'll never look at college basketball the same way ever again, as this is just
one of those teams you need to see up close and personal if you want to get a taste for the passion and energy they've been
bringing to the hardwood for a very long time.
Verizon Wireless Pavilion can hold approximately
7,500 people for basketball games, though max capacity has ballooned to almost 8,000 for some of the largest crowds –
and that definitely tends to happen for the most important games of the season. When two great teams are going head-to-head
and the buzz of the crowd is steadily rising as the clock dwindles in the second half, you'll see that there is nothing like
college basketball played at the highest possible level, particularly when it's a rising team like the VCU Rams. With a great
crowd that pours into the stands to provide the perfect backdrop for a big game, this is a team that you definitely don't
want to miss out on this season.
