Rams or Lambs?

What about the slump the VCU Rams fell into in February? Now it's March. Will that make a difference?

After VCU’s last game, a 72-69 loss to James Madison at the Siegel Center Saturday afternoon, head coach Shaka Smart spoke of his team’s poor defensive effort and its lack of focus. He also expressed how disappointed he was for his four seniors to lose their Senior Day game to finish off the regular season.

Perhaps the best thing that can be said about the Rams lackluster effort against the Dukes is that it appeared the players in Rams colors were already concentrating on the tournament.
