VCU, like USC, wasn’t considered a lock to be in the NCAA tournament. Rams coach Shaka Smart said he and his players are driven by all the slings and arrows. VCU will use all the negative criticism to make a run in the big dance.
VCU had lost four of its five games entering the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, shocked regular-season champion George Mason in the semifinals and then fell to Old Dominion 70-65 in the title game. Although they failed to make it to a tournament at all, USC is a team surrounded by troubles.
USC, predicted to finish sixth in the Pac-10, did not play in any postseason tournaments last year because of NCAA violations committed under Coach Tim Floyd. The Southern California coach, Kevin O’Neil suspended for the Pac-10 semifinal after a verbal confrontation with a fan is another distraction for the Trojans as they begin the tournament.
The winner of the game will play against the Georgetown Hoyas when they get propelled into the round of 64 which will be a tough challenge for whatever team wins and advances.
