NCAA Team of the Day: VCU

By Jake Heston

VCU continues to dominate in March as head coach Shaka Smart and the Rams advance to the round of 32.

After being last year's cinderella team and advancing to the Final Four, #12 seed VCU pulled the upset over #5 seed Wichita State 62-59 on opening day. There's no doubt that Shaka has full control of his team moving forward. Shaka and the Rams will look to continue the magic in the next round where they square off against the dangerously-good Indiana Hoosiers.

Coach Shaka's signature style is looking on point to make another run to the Final Four.

If the Rams are going to advance they're going to need senior Bradford Burgress to continue dominate. He had 16 pts in the opening round and hit clutch shots to answer Wichita Stats's late run.

VCU will need there entire team to come out and score if they hope to advance to the Sweet 16. Burgress will most likely being guarding freshman sensation Cody Zeller who can do it all on the court; so that will be the key match-up.
