That changes on Sunday, Oct. 26 when VCU opens up the Verizon Wireless Arena at the Stuart C. Siegel Center for the Black and Gold Game, […]

MEDIA DAY NOTES: KIKI CAN, O’BOYLE BUILDS TRUST, ROYSTER IMPRESSES RICHMOND, Va. ? VCU fans saw an array of skills last season from then-freshman point guard Keira Robinson. New Rams?
