VCU Vs. Kansas Score: Upstart VCU Leads Kansas 63-54 With Four Minutes To Play

After letting the Jayhawks cut a 14 point halftime lead to two early in the scond half, the VCU Rams have righted the ship and lead by nine points with 3:39 left to play in the second half.

Once again, VCU has been fueled by Joey Rodriguez and excellent three point shooting. The Rams are 12 of 23 from downtown, with Brandon Rozzell, G and Jamie Skeen leading the way (four triples a piece).

Marcus Morris has 20 points and 14 rebounds to lead Kansas, who for much of the second half looked like an entirely different team than their first half imposters. Tyshawn Taylor has helped Marcus in the second half, but ultimately, the inablity to hit open shots and finsh looks might bite Bill Self's squad.

VCU might be gassed, but they will have to withstand at least one more Kansas run to make it to the Final Four.
