>>Saint Louis coach Jim Crews is eight wins away from his 400th career win. Once he crosses that mark he will be the third A-10 coach with 400+ career wins. Richmond coach Chris Mooney is just three wins shy of his career 200th victory. He will be the sixth current A-10 coach to have 200+ wins when he reaches the Milestone.
>>VCU will play at Barclays Center Saturday night, a place the Rams have had success. In their first year in the A-10 and the league’s first year at Barclays Center for the men’s basketball championship, VCU advanced to the final before losing to the 2013 Championship to Saint Louis. The A-10 Championship returns to the building in March for the second year in a five-year run.
>>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.
>>Nine teams are holding opponents to under 70 points per game, including Saint Louis, who is holding opponents to 58.4 points per game.
>>GW’s 10-1 start matches the 1992-93 season as the seventh-best start in the program’s 100-season history, and equals the second-best start for the program in the last 60 years.
