BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
QUOTABLE
"I love it. We've been working towards this for several years, putting together tough schedules and taking some beatings so our kids would grow and get used to this level of competition. It's really fun and exciting now. It's a testament to their character, to take those bruises and now have this kind of success. I'm really happy for them."  -- Head Coach James Finley on VCU's 9-1 start
