RVA News – What to expect: ODU at VCU
Combine VCU’s recent shooting woes with ODU’s 44.5 effective field percentage (303rd nationally) and Saturdays game will likely be a brick fest. The Rams rank second nationally in defensive turnover % while ODU ranks seventh in defensive turnover %. VCU and ODU are two of the CAAs elite defensive teams and it will be interesting to see who can score when it counts.
@ScottyDVCU: In the past 10 years, VCU and ODU are a combined 433-193 (.692) with six CAA championships. Saturday is going to be fun.
@ScottyDVCU: More on that 10-year span… VCU has 224 wins (most in VA)… ODU has 209 (second most in VA)
CAA Hoops – The Hits Just Keep On Comin’…
[Last season] VCU got ODU in Norfolk, and ODU returned the favor in Richmond. And of course the CAA final was even better–ODU hit 5-7 threes in the first half and took an 18-point second half lead before VCU sliced the margin to one. ODU held on for the 70-65 win and automatic bid, but many believe VCUs resolve proved some things to some people who gathered in a room 10 days later. Cruel rivalry irony there.
