PORTLAND, Ore. (WTVR) – The VCU Rams run through the NCAA tournament is over. The Rams, who lead most of the game and had a five point lead with under 2:30 left in the second half, fell in the round of 32 after Rob Brandenberg’s 3-pt attempt at the buzzer came up short.

“Didn’t necessarily want a 3, just wanted a good shot. It was a good look, but just didn’t go,” said VCU Head Coach Shaka Smart after his team’s loss.

VCU finished the season with a school record 29 wins and CAA tournament champions.
