While we may not have gotten the outcome we all desired, we certainly have every reason to be proud of the way the VCU Rams conducted their business both on & off the court.  Despite Saturday’s 70-62 loss to Butler, the Rams run inspired not only their fans here in Richmond, but basketball fans around […]

The two-time defending national champion UConn Lady Huskies were dethroned last night by Notre Dame in the Women’s Final Four, ending the amazing four-year collegiate career of All-American Maya Moore.  She leaves as the NCAA’s fourth leading all-time scorer and finished last night’s game with 36 points, and led the Huskies to an NCAA record […]

According to ESPN, some 5.9 million people entered the NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge at ESPN.com, and we all know President Obama was one of them.  However, of those 5.9 million contestants, only 2 people correctly picked the Final Four.  Joe Pearlman of E. Brunswick, NJ was one of the two.  You would also be stunned […]

If the VCU Rams were actors, they would all be fired.  These guys are so far off script.  They had no business in the NCAA Tournament, and now, VCU is headed to the Final Four!  WOW!  What a game and what a historic win as the Rams outplayed the bigger, stronger and much more publicized […]

Everyone knows that President Barack Obama is an avid basketball fan and is quite knowledgeable when it comes to his NCAA Bracketology.  The Prez started out on a roll in the first two rounds, but it was those two teams from Richmond that threw a monkey wrench into everyone’s brackets, including Obama’s.  Now, with Kansas […]

There is no dispute. Tonight is the biggest sports night in the history of this city, and only if both teams win could there be anything bigger. A win by either VCU or UR, or both, would guarantee a chance for one or both to compete for the trip to the Final Four.  At any […]

Watching the VCU Rams run through the NCAA Tournament made me think about my friend and mentor Terry Sissisky, who was the voice of the Rams radio broadcast for nearly two decades.  Terry was a pro in every sense, and his passion unmatched.  I won 3 CIAA Sportscaster of the Year Awards while doing sports […]

Doug Pensinger/Getty Enjoy the ride Richmond!  Who knows if this city, or any city will ever see this happen again,  Two teams, VCU and UR, about 10 minutes from each other, crosstown rivals.  BOTH of our major universities are in the NCAA Tournament, and BOTH are headed to the Sweet 16.  Incredible is putting it […]

The VCU Rams take on Purdue this evening in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. A win for the Rams would put them into Sweet 16 where they would join crosstown rival, UR.  In fact, the two could potentially meet in the next round.  Wouldn’t that be the biggest game in the history of […]
