RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The VCU Rams tried to mount a comeback to take the Atlantic 10 title, but it wasn't enough to hold off Saint Louis on Sunday.

Saint Louis led 45-32 with less than 12 minutes left in the second half. VCU was able to get within a point just three minutes later, but it wasn't enough to take the lead. The Rams fell 62-56. 

Despite the loss, VCU's season isn't over yet. The Rams will play as a number five seed in the March Madness tournament. They'll take on 12th-seeded Akron in the South region. Their match up is set for March 21. Saint Louis will go to the tournament as a number four seed.
