These two teams don’t have a history of hating one another like VCU and Richmond do, but it’s always a battle when they meet up. The Rams stole one from the Cavs on the road back in 2014 before they returned the favor in the Siegel Center in 2015. Who could forget this game winning shot that Trevor Graham hit just two seasons ago?
Expect more of this kind of stuff. If you like college basketball in the state of Virginia, you’ll like these upcoming matchups.
