richmond just coming of an exciting win against cross town rival VCU. Richmond by and large has a very young team. the younger guys have been put through the fire since Derrick Williams has been injured. they have been forced to play alot of extra minutes and it has paid off. However after a huge win like this I see them just not being abel to stay focused after this win. Thursday night if was a very unsual site to see the Robbins center full and even more rare the student section was filled to compacity, this is a very rare site. Usually about 200 students show up. Another rare site was the students storming the court afterward. The entire team has been on cloud nine and unfortunately I think they fall real hard today. Another factor is UMASS beat Richmond last year at Richmond, convincingly. Put on top of that UMASS has had a week to prepare for this game I see a blood bath coming. Look at the hangover VCU had last night losing to La Salle outright as a 12 point favorite.
On it huge as well brother. I was in attendance Thursday night and have to agree with you on everything you said. I've been to many games at the Robin's Center and have never seen the crowd that hyped up for a game. Usually it resembles a golf/tennis crowd but not that night. I was right behind the VCU bench losing my sh!t screaming for a foul once they crossed halfcourt but we know how that went. What a great game though, can't wait for round to @the the Stu ... good luck today brother
