VMI @ Richmond

What to Know

The VMI Keydets and the Richmond Spiders will face off at 7 p.m. ET November 7th at Robins Center to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for VMI (16-16), so the squad is looking forward to a new start. Richmond went 24-13 last year and got to the second round of the NCAA tournament before losing to the Providence Friars 79-51.

A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Keydets ranked 14th worst with respect to takeaways last season, where the team accrued only 10.3 on average (bottom 96%). To make matters even worse for VMI, Richmond was 11th best (top 3%) in turnovers per game, finishing the 2021-2022 season with only 9.8 on average.

Since the experts predict a loss, VMI will need to dig deep. We'll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
