Notables

  • There’s a good chance eggs and pancakes will be the pregame meal for some teams on Tuesday. There are six A-10 teams in action and three of those are playing in ESPN’s annual Tip-Off Marathon. La Salle drew the early assignment, at 9:00 am versus Quinnipiac, followed by LSU at UMass at 11:00 am. VCU at Virginia concludes the A-10 portion of the marathon at 7:00 pm.

  • Richmond undertook a $17 million renovation of its home court, the Robins Center. The renovation, which installed seats closer to the floor, new video boards and improved lighting, was completed in eight months, allowing the Spiders to return to their home facility in time for this season’s tip-off.

  • VCU is now 179-29 (.861) in the 14-plus year history of the Verizon Wireless Arena. That mark is the 12th-best home mark in the country.

  • VCU is one of five programs nationally to post 23 or more wins in each of the past seven seasons (Akron, Gonzaga, Memphis and Kansas).

  • La Salle, who has advanced to the Sweet 16 from the First Four, is the only A-10 team to have played in the First Four while a member of the league. La Salle and current A-10 member VCU are the only two teams to advance from the First Four to the Sweet 16.

  • For the first time since 2005, every A-10 team will play in the Atlantic 10 Championship. All 13 teams will travel to Brooklyn, with seeds 12 and 13 playing a Wednesday night Opening Round game. The winner will advance and join the other 11 teams in the four-game first round.

Monday's Results

RICHMOND 69, BELMONT 61
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Terry Allen scored 16 points Monday night, and Richmond won its second game of the season, a 69-61 victory over Belmont in the Hall of Fame tip-off tournament.

Cedrick Lindsay had a three-point play with 12:53 left in the game to cap a 9 point-run, putting the Spiders (2-0) ahead 47-37. They extended the lead to 52-39 on Deion Taylor's layup at the 10:57 mark before Belmont made a run.

Reece Chamberlain hit a layup for the Bruins (1-1) with 27 seconds to go to close the lead to 64-61, but the Spiders finished strong, hitting 5 of 6 of their free-throws.

Trey Davis had a career-high 11 rebounds to go with five points for the Spiders.

Blake Jenkins had 4-of-7 field goals for the Bruins.

 

ST. BONAVENTURE 75, ABILENE CHRISTIAN 47
ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (AP) - Matthew Wright had a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, as St. Bonaventure overwhelmed Abilene Christian 75-47 Monday.

Four of the five starters were in double figures for the Bonnies. Jordan Gathers had 14 points, followed by Youssou Ndoye with 12 and Charlon Kloof with 11.

St. Bonaventure (2-0) got off to a slow start making only 9 of 23 field goals in the first half. That changed in the second as they hit 48.5% from the floor.

LaDarrien Williams, who finished with 18 points, had Abilene Christian (0-2) out front 22-18 with 7:38 to go in the first. The Bonnies took the lead for good 25-24 on two Wright free throws at the 3:43 mark. The Wildcats were staying close until Gathers hit a three-point jumper at the end of the half to stretch St. Bonaventure's lead to 33-25. St. Bonaventure dominated in the final period.

SOUTHERN METHODIST 89, RHODE ISLAND 58
GARLAND, Texas (AP) - Nic Moore scored 20 points, hitting four 3-point attempts, and SMU limited visiting Rhode Island to 30.8-percent shooting as the Mustangs beat the Rams 89-58 on Monday night at the Curtis Cullwell Center.

SMU improved to 2-0, having opened last Friday with a 69-61 victory over TCU.

Moore is one of four first-year-eligible transfers who have bolstered coach Larry Brown's roster this season. He arrived at SMU a year ago from Illinois State along with Redbirds coach Tim Jankovich, who became a Brown assistant and SMU's head coach-in-waiting.

Rhode Island (1-1) was led by freshman guard E.C. Matthews with 15 points. Junior forward Gilvydas Biruta, a transfer from Rutgers, scored 9 points and fouled out with 7:53 to play.
