The Rams just keep on winning, and winning, and now they are in the Final Four. And their next opponent Butler, is in for a fight. Odd that Butler has become famous for being the Cinderella team, and now, they will be the established power facing a Cinderella team.
SAN ANTONIO — Move over, Butler. Virginia Commonwealth is crashing the Final Four.
The 11th-seeded Rams, who didn’t even bother watching the NCAA tournament selection show, are heading to Houston, and final No. 1 seed Kansas is heading home after a spectacular collapse.Jamie Skeen scored 26 points as the Rams delivered the biggest upset of the NCAA tournament, shocking the Jayhawks 71-61 on Sunday to become just the third 11th seed to ever make the Final Four.So doubtful were the Rams of even making the tournament that they watched the Cartoon Network and went out for fast food instead of watching the selection show two weeks ago. Now, they’re Houston-bound after an incredible takedown of the last No. 1 seed.”Those people (the doubters) don’t matter,” VCU coach Shaka Smart said. “The only people that matter is the 14 guys on our team, and they never stopped believing.”
I usually pull for the underdogs in the tourney, and I am impressed with VCU, they are for real, and since Butler knocked off my Gators, or, to be more honest, my Gators choked just enough to lose to Butler, I hope VCU wins the war of the underdogs! In fact I hope they win the whole damn thing!
