What to Know
The Richmond Spiders and the VCU Rams are set to square off in an Atlantic 10 matchup at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 24 at Stuart Siegel Center. The Spiders will be seeking to avenge the 74-62 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played January 20th.
The Saint Louis Billikens typically have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday Richmond proved too difficult a challenge. Richmond came out on top in a nail-biter against Saint Louis, sneaking past 81-78. Richmond got double-digit scores from four players: forward Tyler Burton (20), forward Matt Grace (18), guard Jason Nelson (17), and guard Jason Roche (10).
Meanwhile, VCU took their contest against the Saint Joseph's Hawks on Tuesday by a conclusive 88-63 score. The Rams can attribute much of their success to guard Jayden Nunn, who shot 7-for-7 from downtown and finished with 31 points.
The Spiders are expected to lose this next one by 9. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Richmond's opponents whenever they hit the road.
Their wins bumped Richmond to 14-14 and VCU to 21-7. In Richmond's victory, Tyler Burton had 20 points along with nine boards and Matt Grace had 18 points and five assists. We'll see if VCU have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
