VCU vs. Richmond Live Stream: How To Watch Online For Free


The A-10 leading VCU Rams (21-5, 11-2 A-10)  are set to battle it out with the Richmond Spiders (15-10, 9-4 A-10)  in the Capital City Classic. The Rams are currently two games ahead of the Spiders in the conference standings, but that can all change at the Robins Center tonight.

VCU is riding a seven-game winning streak after taking down St. Joes this past Tuesday. Richmond, on the other hand, is not quite as hot, coming off of a rough loss to George Mason earlier in the week, 93-70. Despite the record differences, expect Richmond to go all out against their divisional foe in this classic rivalry game. VCU squeaked out an 81-74 win at home against the Spiders just a few weeks ago.

The Rams have become powerhouses in the Atlantic Ten and frequent players in the NCAA tournament, but the Spiders are no stranger to the “Big Dance” either. This season VCU has been able to get it done on both sides of the ball and are led by senior guard JeQuan Lewis, who just put up 34 points on St. Joes.

Winning the A-10 conference tournament creates an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, and tonight’s game poses the perfect opportunity for Richmond to get back on track. The Spiders are certainly the underdog in this match-up, but anything can happen in conference play, especially between rivals. You probably won’t want to miss this one, so here are all of the ways to catch the game.
