VCU Rams Update

Tis the season where I can pull for my Alma mater, THE Virginia Commonwealth University Rams. Who you ask?? Well, they were the 2004 and 2007 CAA Conference winners and the school who is always overshadowed by the Richmond Spiders. Well, not this year my friends, for last seasons Cinderella team has its superstar back for another, and hopefully, 2 more seasons. His name, Mr. Eric Maynor. I am absolutely pumped for this season. We proved we can hang with the big boys last year, upsetting Duke in the first round of the NCAA tournament and taking Pitt the overtime in the second round before losing a hard fought game.

We had our first game of the season on Saturday vs the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Yeh, I dont know who they are either but we beat em, giving us a record of 1-0. Maynor looked rusty but still managed to hit half his shots. Other than him, we are thing. LOTS of fresh faces since 2 of our key starters; Pera Rosa and Skinner graduated, giving us far less experience from a year ago. But we have a 6'9 freshman in our midst's. 2nd tallest in the CAA I believe. So we can concentrate on more than just the 3-point ball this year.

Thursday, we have a tough task at hand. We play Clyde Drexlers Houston Cougars at home. Updates to come!
