Round two of the Capital City Classic: VCU fall to the University of Richmond at The Robins Center

Sports

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — One of the most highly anticipated match-ups of the basketball season was a game to forget for the Rams. The VCU Rams (17-7, 7-4 A-10) took on the University of Richmond Spiders (18-6, 8-3 A-10) at the Robins Center earlier today.

The Spiders went into this game looking to take revenge on VCU’s late-January 68-87 win at the Siegel Center.

The VCU Rams face Dayton at home on Feb. 18 and the University of Richmond takes on George Mason at home Feb. 19.

FINAL SCORE: RICHMOND 77, VCU 59

VCU forward Isaac Vann had 10 first-half points for the Rams. Spider’s guard Nick Sherod went 4-5 from the 3PT line, scoring 12 points in the first half.

The lead was one VCU could not overcome with the Spiders ending their three-game losing streak to the Rams.

8News caught up with some happy Spiders fans after the rivalry win.

“I was in the Siegel Center when we lost. It was our turn this time. It was great.”
