VCU Rams remain undefeated in CAA

Playing at the Siegel Center on West Broad Street, following a lackluster first half, VCU’s brutal defense squeezed visiting Northeastern to death: VCU 64, Northeasthern 44.

The Rams attack was paced by senior guard/forward Jesse Pellot-Rosa, who scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds in 25 minutes on the floor. With a game at William & Mary on Wednesday night, VCU head coach Anthony Grant wisely rested his starters more in this game than recent previous outings, using 11 players in the doing.

As a result of tonight’s hoops action, VCU (12-3, 4-0 in CAA) moved into a three-way tie for first place in the Colonial Athletic Association with Hofstra and Drexel. Playing at home, Hofstra (11-4, 4-0 in CAA) defeated ODU (10-5, 3-1 in CAA) by a score of 70 to 58. And, Drexel (12-2, 4-0 in CAA) won at James Madison (4-10, 1-3 in CAA) by a score of 65 to 54.
