VCU rolls past Virginia Union in exhibition action

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

VCU men's basketball doesn't officially tip off its game schedule until next Friday, but Ram fans got an early taste of havoc at the Siegel Center on Thursday, as VCU hosted Virginia Union in an exhibition game to tune-up for the regular season.

The Rams jumped out to a big lead early and held a 56-17 advantage at the break.  They were able to put it on cruise control in the second half and looked good in their only exhibition prior to the regular season.

Troy Daniels paced the Rams in scoring, dropping 19 points, 15 via the three pointer and 16 of which came in the first half.  Briante Weber added 12 points, while Jarred Guest and Juvonte Reddic added ten points apiece.  Treveon Graham led the team in rebounding with eight, while Darius Theus dished out eight assists and Weber tallied eight steals.

For Virginia Union, Calvin Brown paced the squad with 14 points and Damion Harris chipped in eleven. 

VCU opens up its season next Friday when the Rams host Florida Gulf Coast at 7:30pm.  The Panthers begin play next Saturday when they host Kings College.
