Despite all the talk and the speculation about the possibility of VCU losing it’s head basketball coach, Shaka Smart, to one of those BIG, basketball-factory schools, like UCLA, which had been hot on the trail of the Rams’ mentor since they fired head coach Ben Howland following the Bruins exit from the NCAA Tournament.  There’s no question that Smart is one of the hot coaching prospects in the country, and we are so blessed that he and his family feel so comfortable here in Richmond as Shaka has decided to STAY!

There were reports that UCLA or Minnesota were about to snare Smart but again, with little hesitation, and no official visit, he made it clear to all that he likes his job coaching the VCU Rams and he’s quietly building a strong program right here in the Capital City.  There’s no place like home, right?
