VCU Rams #10

Autore: Manuel Follis
Data: 14 Mar, 2017

Record 26-8

The transition from the Shaka Smart era has been completed and VCU, in Will Wade second season as head coach, found a balance between offense and defense despite playing with a slower pace than in the past. The team still relies on a deep rotation with 10 players averaging 10+ minutes and 9 scoring 5+ points per game. VCU is an undersized team, with 6-6 Ahmed Hamdy coming off the bench as the only player over 6-5. When the Rams can rely on defensive switches and on fast break points they are a dangerous team. They are a streaky three point shooting team, but when it falls, they are trouble.

Key Players

When it comes to energy and effort, Mo Alie-Cox should be a top 20 pick in the draft, but unfortunately he cannot do much else on the court. He is still the face of a team that has in JeQuan Lewis the best player and an interesting prospects for overseas teams. He is the kind of do-it-all PG that shoots 40% on threes. Justin Tillman has good chemistry with Lewis and loves to play above the rim.


VCU’s goal was to reach the tournament. Mission accomplished. Every round they will survive will be another huge win.
