VCU, UCF prepare for defensive battle

VCU's upset loss to Rhode Island in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament ultimately had no impact on the Rams' seeding for the NCAA Tournament.

Expected by most experts to earn an 8 or 9 seed, VCU indeed picked up an 8 seed in the East Region and gets to wear the white uniforms for Friday night's first-round matchup with Central Florida in Columbia, S.C.

The Rams went 25-7 and won the A-10 regular-season title by two games, going 3-3 against NCAA Tournament teams and going toe-to-toe with Virginia for 40 minutes in Charlottesville before eating a 57-49 defeat.
