VCU 71 – Kansas 61
Were in it from the beginning and never let up!
Wow. How great to see the teams going to the Final Four. Not a No. 1 seed in the bunch! (Of course, VCU messed up my last hope in my bracket picks, but it’s worth it to have a Virginia team in the Final Four.)
but resolved to root for the remaining Virginia teams. It was a thrilling game. Hope they make it to the finals and think they can beat Butler. Butler’s had a couple of close calls during the tournament. VCU is playing consistently better ball.
I was in the crowd with friends from VCU and Dem. campaigns.
Amazingly (for a school of 32,000 and a city of over 200,000), the crowd could not have been more than 6,000 people or so, but the energy was great.
I’m sure it will be an even bigger deal next weekend when we make it to the championship!
