GAMEDAY CENTRAL: VCU AT OLD DOMINION

NORFOLK, Va. - This game, this rivalry needs no introduction. ESPN.com has called it one of the most underrated rivalries in all of college basketball. It's by far the best college basketball rivalry in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

All of that happens today when the VCU men's hoops squad heads to the hostile Ted Constant Convocation Center for a showdown of CAA heavyweights on Comcast Sportsnet.

The two schools have met a total of 82 times with the Black & Gold holding a slight 42-40 lead in the head-to-head series. Old Dominion is making headway, winning three of the last four meetings, including a dramatic 73-69 overtime win over the Rams in the CAA Semi-Finals last year.

Want a key match-up? Look down low as senior Jamie Skeen will be facing his toughest challenge of the year against Frank Hassell. The two big men lead their squads in scoring, rebounding and blocks, while both rank in the top-10 in the CAA in all three categories.

It all goes down at 4 p.m., Saturday afternoon.
