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 back  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.

DePaul Blue Demons head coach Oliver Purnell has completed his coaching staff, bringing in three assistants who worked with him at Clemson and retained three other coaches from Jerry Wainwright’s staff.

Purnell has been known to rebuild programs. He has succeeded at Radford, Old Dominion, Dayton and Clemson. He played at Old Dominion University under a very good coach in Paul Webb who won over 500 games.

Ron Bradley is the associate head coach, Billy Garrett and Kevin Nickelberry were hired as assistants. Josh Postorino who played for Purnell at Dayton, will be the director of basketball operations. Mac Calloway will be the strength and conditioning coach.

David Booth, Andy Farrell and Brandon Bailey will be retained from Wainwright’s staff.
