CAPEL'S RETURN IS A VCU ROUT

VCU 82, Oklahoma 69 (Nov. 21, 2009)
Former VCU Coach Jeff Capel received a warm reception before tip-off, but the Rams ditched the pleasantries once the clock started and handed the 17th-ranked Sooners a convincing defeat.

Capel, who led VCU to the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and an NIT appearance in 2005, led his Oklahoma squad into a buzz saw that night in his first visit to the Siegel Center since departing the program in 2006.

Jay Gavin scored 20 points, and Larry Sanders added 17 to lead the Rams to their first win over a ranked opponent at the Siegel Center since the building opened in 1999.
