Atlantic 10 Tournament Finals Picks: VCU Rams vs. Saint Louis Billikens
Date: Sunday, March 17th, 1:00 ET
Location: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY
VCU vs. Saint Louis Live TV: CBS
The first time the Rams and the Billikens met this year, HAVOC had a real problem. VCU only forced eight turnovers in that game, and that nearly isn’t going to be good enough to win this game. It’s going to take at least 15 turnovers forced in this one for Head Coach Shaka Smart and the gang to win this game in all likelihood. The Rams caused 22 turnovers by the Massachusetts Minutemen on Saturday, and they are going to try to do the same thing in this one. Saint Louis has really made it through the Atlantic 10 season without all that much in the way of hassles. The Billikens could be all the way up to a No. 4 seed in the dance if they can win this game. Saint Louis is going to want to slow this game down and make it a half-court game, something that it was able to do when these two teams met the first time around. However, if the Rams are able to get the tempo going, this could be a dangerous spot. We really love the look of the Rams and the way that they are playing. This is a team that feels like it is going to be poised for a deep run in March, and this is going to be the first game of many in which the team could come up with a big effort.
