VCU shocks the nation with big win
by MizzMatt - 3/27/11
San Antonio, TX- The Virginia Commonwealth University Rams have done what nobody thought would happen. They've knocked off number one seeded Kansas in the NCAA Elite Eight. VCU, an 11-seed, will face eighth seeded Butler in the Final Four, the schools first trip to this far in the tourney. Powered by a 71-61 victory over the Beakers, VCU will certainly have the momentum going into the game, whereas Butler defeated Florida by three, 74-71.
A lot of fans around Mizzou Nation are wanting the MUAD to consider Shaka Smart, head coach of the Rams, for the job replacing Anderson. After today's decisive victory (they led by 14 at the half and never trailed in the second), I really don't see VCU letting Smart go. Furthermore, Smart can now join former Mizzou coach Anderson in saying "I've beaten kU once in my career."
