Two teams looking to make cinderella like runs meet in a 10-7 matchup as the VCU Rams and St. Mary’s Gaels clash.
The Rams were runners up in the A-10 after falling to Rhode Island in the championship game.
VCU is a team that really focuses on playing stellar defense and really suffocating opposing shooters. The Rams hound to the ball, as they force nearly 15 turnovers per game.
Scoring wise, they concede just 66.3 points per game.
They’ll look to two players to carry the load offensively and really get the rest of this team going. Justin Tillman and JeQuan Lewis both average over 12 points per game and really like to attack the hoop with their speed.
St. Mary’s Gaels
The Gaels are one of those teams who have been really overlooked this season.
It’s typical for them, given they always are passed by because of Gonzaga, especially this season where they dropped all 3 meetings. Still, despite the 3 losses to the Bulldogs, the Gaels are a tough team to have to deal with.
St. Mary’s, like VCU, are going to really look to focus on the defensive side of the ball.
The Gaels are averaging just 56.5 points against this year, as they are one of the best at controlling the paint.
You won’t see many teams able to get to the offensive glass or have any easy looks at the rim. They’ll really work on controlling the tempo and forcing turnovers to turn them into transition buckets.
