VCU victorious in Homecoming game

Robert Broyles

VCU’s Homecoming game against Towson featured a sell-out crowd of 7,590.  Fans came out to watch the action on the court and the crowning of a new Homecoming queen and king.  This third sell-out crowd of the season at at VCU’s  Stuart C. Siegel Center has the team on pace to break VCU’s all-time season attendance records.

VCU defeated the Towson Tigers 65-42.  Freshman point guard Joey Rodriquez tied a team single-game record with seven steals as the Rams defense was able to shut down the Towson offense by limiting the Tigers to only 25 percent shooting from the floor.

Freshmen Lance Kearse and Larry Sanders along with junior Eric Maynor each had 11 points as VCU continues to battle for the top slot in the CAA standings, heading into the last half of the regular season.

The Rams will be back in action at the Stuart C. Siegel Center Wendesday night, February 13th as they play host to James Madison University at 7:00pm.
