St. John's should blast them.

Should is the operative word. VCU tends to rise up and play well against better competition. Us...that is a different story. While I have not been impressed with VCU thus far this season....you can see they have several scoring options and the ability to keep the other team's defense honest.

I agree that they step up to competition, but I disagree about multiple scoring threats. I think VCU is going to have a really hard time with our defense and depth.

I have no clue what to think about the Monarchs anymore. Could see losing to the Rams, yet again. I know absolutely nothing about them except their jerseys say VCU on the front and the last 3/4 of a decade that's been enough to see a string of L's for the Monarchs.

Their talent doesn't look great, but it is nice to have a guy you can count on to get you a big bucket when you need one. Stylistically they look more like VCU and look like they are on the right track, but the talent just isn't there yet. I think they are going to need to get a lot of turnovers to win games, because they look terrible in the half court. As for our game with them, I say it is 50/50. If I had to pick a winner, I would probably pick them. Two inept offenses, but they get the nod because they have a player that can make a play when the offense sputters.

VCU game will be interesting. Temple shot 14% from 3 and 40% FT and still should have won.
VCU only scoring threat appears to be Evans and their rebounding is weak part of the game.
Our confidence is shattered after that trip to St Thomas so it will be interesting who shows up.
I will be there

VCU, W&M and JMU now all look like 50/50 games to me.

These boards will be a place to behold if we lose to JMU. I imagine all 3 of their basketball fans will be on here to rub it in, too.

I'm not sure "rubbing it in" is an accurate description. More like sharing the misery.

Losing any of those games this year would be unacceptable, and that fact will be faithfully expressed.

See the scoring options now ? They are playing well and will not have a problem with our defense. Evans will score with ease.

Watching VCU play St. Johns makes me think i need to come up with something else to do the night we play them. Not optimistic about our prospects.

They scored 33pts in 20 min.against a very good St Johns team. We would likely have scored 20.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It will make the win that much more meaningful. Can’t believe the game is on a Wed and not Saturday.

VCU ALWAYS rises (doesn't mean beat) to the occasion to play good or better competition. RARELY do we.

Evans is a talented player but he dribbles way too damn much.
