Virginia Commonwealth University is a member of the NCAA Mid-major conference, Colonial Athletic Association.

The CAA is often disrepected by the national media, but it is a solid conference with VCU, Old Dominion, Northeastern, George Mason, Delaware, Drexel, Georgia State, Hofstra, James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington and William & Mary.

The 11th-seeded team Rams used a suffocating defense to corral the taller and stronger USC Trojans in winning 59-46. The Rams up their record to 24-11.

Jamie Skeen scored 16 points to lead VCU into a showdown against sixth-seeded Georgetown (21-10) on Friday in Chicago.

Jio Fontan scored 14 points and Nikola Vucevic 11 for USC (19-15), which managed only one field goal over the final 9 minutes of the game.

The Rams shut down Vucevic, a first-team All-Pac-10 performer, was double and triple-teammed and never got into a rhythm.

The halftime score was 22-22.

In the 2nd half, the Rams found their shooting shoes to go up 34-27. USC came backĀ  to 44-43 but VCU pulled away never to give up the lead ever again.

Shaka Smart, the VCU coach was making a return to UD Arena. He used to be on the staff of the Dayton Flyers under Oliver Purnell as the head of basketball operations in the last decade.

Chris Johnson scored 24 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Dayton Flyers were held off by the Old Dominion Monarchs 74-71 last weekend in Norfolk, Virginia.

Dayton tried to tie the game by hurrying up the floor and Josh Parker’s long three-pointer that may-or-may-not have counted at the buzzer wedged between the rim and the backboard.

The Monarchs pulled out the close win with obvious advantages in two key areas. ODU out-rebounded the Flyers 44 to 33 with 17 offensive rebounds. They also dominated the bench scoring 36-10.

Dayton falls to 7-3, while the Monarchs, the Colonial Athletic Association pre-season favorite, improved to 8-2.
