The VCU Rams have found themselves in the NCAA Tournament once again, this time as a No. 12 seed tipping off against No. 5 seed Wichita State in the first round on Thursday evening. The Rams battled their way through the CAA Conference Tournament to take down Drexel in the Championship game to punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament, where they'll look to once again make some noise with upsets.
The Shockers on the other hand earned a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament after losing in the conference tournament, but notching a 27-5 overall record and losing only two games in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Shockers played it close and even beat some other tournament teams during the season, but they'll have their hands full with VCU as they try to avoid the upset.
Game Date/Time: Thursday, March 15, 7:15 p.m. ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
