A-10 Preview: VCU

The Team to Beat?
WFUV Sports will be previewing all the teams in the Atlantic-10 in anticipation of the start of Fordham's baseketball season. Here's a look at the Rams of VCU...
The VCU Rams were picked first in the 2013 pre-season A-10 poll, and with good reason. Shaka Smart's team retains their top scorer and rebounder from a year ago when they lost in the A-10 championship game to St. Louis. No matter where the Rams finish in the standings, they are a lock to make the NCAA tournament so winning the A-10 would just add to the accolades. The thing to watch out for with this team has always been their HAVOC defense. They will beat you with a full court press and a knack for stealing the ball. They've led the nation in steals the past two seasons. 
Below you can listen to my conversation with VCU Head Coach Shaka Smart from A-10 media day.
