VCU got past George Washington by seven on Wednesday. Richmond is coming off a 77-57 win over George Mason on Saturday. SUPER SENIORS: Richmond has relied heavily on its seniors this year.
Richmond has one A-10 game to make up after COVID issues at Duquesne postponed the Dukes' Dec. 19 visit to the Robins Center, and a ninth nonconference opportunity available, if UR remains interested and can find a willing and desirable opponent (that also seems unlikely, according to Mooney). The Spiders, whose next scheduled game is against VCU (9-3, 2-1 A-10) at the Robins Center Saturday at 1 p.m. have starters logging heavy minutes, particularly the guards.
FAIRFAX – Grant Golden got caught up in a first-half rebounding scramble and twisted his left ankle. The 6-foot-10 senior stayed still, bent at the waist, for several seconds, and then hobbled off the court. From the University of Richmond's perspective, that was the scariest part of a 77-57 win at George Mason Saturday afternoon.
