The Richmond Spiders are looking to earn their tenth trip to the NCAA Tournament this year. In their last appearance in March Madness, the Spiders made it all the way to Sweet Sixteen. However, Richmond has had a dry spell since that 2011 season. The 2019-20 team’s most notable players during the current season include Jacob Gilyard, Nick Sherod, and Grant Golden. Current coach Chris Mooney is the winningest coach in Richmond history and ranks fifth in all-time conference history in Atlantic 10 wins and overall Atlantic 10 wins by a head coach. Mooney is currently working in his 15th year as the head coach of Richmond. He boasts a 250-215 record and has led Richmond to two NCAA tournaments as well as two NIT Quarterfinals.
