RICHMOND, Va. – On the heels of a six-game winning streak, the VCU men's basketball team re-entered the Top 25 polls this week, ranked #20 in the Associated Press poll and #21 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
It is the fourth time in the first nine weeks of the season that the Rams are in both polls. Last year, VCU spent six weeks ranked in the top-25.
