|Kyle Guy drives past Malik Crowfield|
As Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) suggested memorably, in "A Few Good Men" (1992), maybe these young and talented Rams can't handle the truth ... yet. We'll soon see. VCU has two more games in Hawaii to start proving to themselves they are getting better.
- Can these Rams change to playing a withering full-court defense, time and again, without fouling too much?
- Around the backboard, before poising to out-jump everybody, can they remember to first box out?
- Can they deflect more passes and dive for more loose balls on the floor? Can they be more aggressive on defense, take more chances?
Update: The Rams raced to 26-point lead at the half. Then coasted to the win: VCU 83, Cal 69.
