Big win for Saint Louis. 56-46 at Richmond. VCU up by 9 in the second half vs Charlotte.
Charlotte about to tip at Saint Louis. Go 49ers.
Saint Louis up 37-28 at the half vs. Charlotte.
That Temple-UMass game was nuts. Temple won 83-82.
Rubber meets the road this week.
Tues VCU at Saint Louis
Thurs LaSalle at Temple
Fri Saint Louis at Butler
Sat VCU at Xavier
Very much so. If I had to pick what I would want to happen, I would prefer Saint Louis over VCU, Temple over Lasalle, Butler two wins this week and VCU over Xavier.
I see VCU followed by SL
then BU and LaSalle tied for third a week from today.
VCU is ranked 24th. SLU was only 22 votes away from beating out Notre Shame for 25.

#Temple-#LaSalle is a beatdown. Owls getting a resume boost and the Explorers taking an at-large hit[hr]
Temple up 64-53, 8 min left.
got to feel bad for the A10. Just went from a top notch league to losing, Butler, Xavier, St. Louis, Dayton(presumably in 2014), Temple, Charlotte in the span of a year.
I feel the same way. Especially for VCU. They are caught in no mans land. Hopefully A-10 can get some good additions.
Would Detroit be a candidate for the A-10?

Johnny Williams from St. Benedict's just committed to VCU, a source says.

VCU scored 2014 PG Jonathan Williams. He committed after watching Havoc on steroids today. Williams can go too
Havoc on steriods....that about sums it up. Word is that arena was just insane yesterday. VCU players probably moved twice as quick as normal. I watched a little of the game again this morning and it was just incredible the ground VCU was covering. Their quickness is unbelievable 1 thru 5. Castro and Brown and even Berry, who is a very quick BIG will help us going forward in that regard.
2014 St. Vincent Pallotti (MD) PF Tariq Owens will choose between VCU & Miami. He will visit both shortly after the NCAA basketball season

Speculation is that Atlantic 10 is taking George Mason from Colonial.

RT @GoodmanCBS: St. Joe's junior big man CJ Aiken is leaving early for the NBA
I honestly have no recollection of this kid. I guess he had 13 and 7 against us this year. Only averages 10 and 5 a game... that's not even close to NBA quality. I don't even see him listed in Draft Express' 2013 mock draft. LOL good luck dude.
The Butler/St Joes game wasnt televised back here. So I would imagine alot of Butler fans don't have any recollection of him. He was the defensive player of the year last year in the A10. Shot blocker. Andrew Smith annihilated him in the game in Jan though. There are some rumblings in Philly that Phil Martelli may be in trouble. Hawk fans expected this team to win the A10 and be in the NCAA tourney. They had zero depth though and that was a disaster for a league with as many good teams as the A10 had this year.
