VCU vs. UR in the Black & Blue Classic
It's that time of the year - time for the Richmond showdown between the VCU Rams and the Richmond Spiders in the Black & Blue Classic!
It's another great chance for all of us to celebrate these two fantastic programs and the excitement they have brought to Richmond over the years. VCU and UR of course put Richmond on the national basketball map in 2011, when both teams reached the Sweet 16 - and VCU of course continuing on to the Final Four. VCU again represented Richmond by returning to the tournament in 2012.
VCU brings in some serious national credentials this year, currently ranked #19 in the country and on a serious hotstreak of 13 games. This will be the first time the Rams and Spiders have matched up as members of the Atlantic 10 conference, with VCU joining this season. Richmond currently holds 5th in the conference, while VCU leads with a 4-0 conference record so far.
Come join us to watch some of the best basketball Richmond has to offer! The game will take place at the UofR Robins Center in front of a sold-out crowd on Thursday, January 24th
