RICHMOND, Va. — As far as regular season college basketball games go, it does not get much bigger than this for the VCU Rams (until, of course, the University of Virginia visits the Siegel Center in December).
Tonight the undefeated and #15-ranked Rams take on the undefeated and #12-ranked Villanova Wildcats.
The teams are matching up as part of the Progressive Legends Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The battle of Top 20 teams will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on ESPN 2 and online via the WatchESPN app.
The Rams have won their first three games by an average of 20 points (a stat thrown off a bit by last week’s 40 point win over Maryland-Eastern Shore).
The winner of tonight’s game will take on the winner of Michigan vs. Oregon on Friday.
The Rams will play at Old Dominion on November 29 and at Illinois State on December 2 before the highly-anticipated match-up against the #9-ranked University of Virginia on December 6 in Richmond.
