RICHMOND, Va. – First impressions are the most important is what college students are told as they head into the business world.

The Black & Gold earned straight set victories at every doubles and singles position in both matches on their way to easy victories.
VCU will return to action on Saturday when they take on UNCW at 3 p.m.
