Reddic leads VCU to rout of George Washington

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

VCU didn't have much time to turn its attention to George Washington after Thursday's win over Massachusetts, as less than 48 hours separated the two contests, but by the looks of things Saturday night, the one day off between games was plenty.

Juvonte Reddic posted 24 points and pulled down ten boards and VCU shot 53 percent from the field, as the Rams routed George Washington, 84-57, at the Siegel Center Saturday night.  The win marks VCU's fifth straight victory and improves the Rams to 21-5 on the season, 9-2 in the Atlantic 10.

After an 8-0 GW run gave the Colonials an 8-2 lead, the Rams answered to take an 11-10 lead and never looked back.  A 24-6 run to end the first half would put VCU in control at the break, 42-24.  Reddic would score 12 first half points, ten of them coming on dunks.

The second half would see more of the same.  The Colonials would get no closer than 12 in the final 20 minutes, as the Rams cruised to the win.

Rob Brandenberg, Troy Daniels and Melvin Johnson each chipped in eleven points in addition to Reddic's big night to pace the Rams.  Reddic's points came on an 11-for-13 shooting night, while he connected on both free throw attempts.

VCU faces a tough test on Tuesday, as the Rams travel to face Saint Louis, which improved to 8-2 in Atlantic 10 play with a win over Charlotte on Saturday night.
