RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - How far are you taking the Rams and Spiders in your bracket?

We have a crew traveling with the Spiders to Denver.

Tuesday night, the Spider's basketball team flew out of Richmond headed for Colorado, where they'll play in the first round of the NCAA tournament Friday.

Matt Butner was on the plane - you can check out his video from the flight on facebook.

We're also on the road with the Rams.

VCU plays its first game tonight in Dayton.

Matt Lincoln is in Ohio with a preview of how they're getting ready for their most important game of the season so far.
