GAMEDAY CENTRAL: VCU vs. DREXEL

RICHMOND, Va. - Head Coach Shaka Smart picks a "Quote of the Game" and on Wednesday his choice was "Adversity is the first path to truth."

It's no coincidence Smart picked that as the Rams will be looking to show some fight after taking a tough loss on the road on Monday to Georgia State, but the Black & Gold are back at home in the Verizon Wireless Arena at the Stuart C. Siegel Center, where they have won 16 straight.

To keep the eighth longest active home winning streak alive, VCU must a Drexel squad that continually surprises folks with a tenacious defense and an unbelievable rebounding advantage. The Dragons are 9-3 entering Wednesday, including a win earlier this season over 20th-ranked Louisville. However, they will also be looking to get back to their winning ways after falling at home to Hofstra on Monday night.

Both teams feature outstanding shooters as their sixth men in VCU's Brandon Rozzell and Drexel's Chris Fouch. Rozzell is a key factor for the Black & Gold as the Rams are 25-5 in games in which he scores in double-figures.

The game, which can be seen on The Comcast Network, is set to tip at 7 p.m.
