Box Score

Official VCU Game Summary:

The short story: VCU held Loyola (Md.) to a mere 20 second-half points en route to the Rams’ largest victory of the season. Senior guard De’Riante Jenkins and freshman guard Bones Hyland both racked up 15 points on the night.

OPENING TIP

  • Jenkins was explosive from behind the arc with five triples, tying a career-high for three-pointers in a game
  •  Hyland’s 15 points were a career-best, and all of his points came by way of three-point shots. He was 5-of-7 from beyond the arc and added five assists (with no turnovers) and a pair of steals
  • KeShawn Curry added 12 for the Rams, a career-high for the VCU sophomore guard
  • VCU drained a season-high 14 triples, which accounted for 42 of its points
  • Andrew Kostecka led the way for the Greyhounds, scoring a game-high 30 points.

THE DIFFERENCE

  • Loyola took a brief 10-7 lead in the first minutes of the game, but the Rams quickly overcame the deficit and never relinquished the lead
  • Jenkins sparked a 10-4 spurt with a pair of 3-pointers in the early stages of the second half to push VCU’s lead to 50-35
  • Hyland later helped the Rams assume a commanding 69-42 lead with a pair of 3-pointers that ignited a 16-0 run
  • VCU closed the game on a 14-0 run, capped by a vicious alley-oop dunk by freshman Tre Clark
  • The Rams shot 50 percent (31-of-62) from the field overall, including 41 percent (14-of-34) from behind the 3-point arc. VCU held the Greyhounds to 39 percent (20-of-52) shooting, including 30 percent (8-of-27) in the second half
  • Twelve VCU players scored. The Rams bench contributed 52 points

NOTABLE

  • VCU has won 20 consecutive home games dating back to last season
  • VCU’s 52 bench points were its most since it scored 56 against Belmont on Dec. 16, 2014
  • Sunday’s game was VCU’s first in eight days
  • VCU’s non-conference slate is complete

NEXT UP
VCU will remain at the Siegel Center to open up conference play on Thursday, Jan. 2 against Fordham. The game is slated for a 7 p.m. tip and will be broadcast on MASN and ESPN+.

Please note that this list is rapidly changing and we’re doing our best to keep it updated but we will at time have some outdated information. Please let us know if there has been a change.

In the interest of public health and safety, the administration of Mayor Levar Stoney recommends that all restaurants, bars, and other establishments that serve food and drink within city limits eliminate bar seating, move tables at least six feet apart and limit their on-site service to 50 percent of their normal capacity. If 50 percent of capacity exceeds the CDC-recommended limit of 50 people gathered, establishments should limit their service to 50 or fewer patrons. The recommendation does not affect any restaurant’s capacity to offer carryout and delivery. In order to support the residents and businesses of Richmond, the administration will introduce on March 23 an ordinance outlining a city amnesty program for all penalties and interest on most local taxes due between March 13 and June 30, 2020. This proposed program will exclude personal property taxes on vehicles, motor vehicle license taxes, and vehicle license fees, as required by ordinance. The city is also exploring options for a program to issue small, no-interest loans to support small businesses. More information on this will be provided at a later date.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels have made their 2020 Education Day curriculum available for Richmond-area students online as a “digital field trip.” The new website includes baseball-themed learning activities for students in grades K-5.

The Education Day activities website can be found here.

The Flying Squirrels annually host Education Days at The Diamond as a learning-centered field trip to a game for schools around the Richmond region. The team has made their 2020 Education Day curriculum, broken down by grade level, available to families and students with schools closed for the rest of the academic year.

“In these unprecedented times, it is still our responsibility to be impactful in our communities, and especially with our future: the kids,” Flying Squirrels VP & COO Todd “Parney” Parnell said. “We are very proud of this wonderful work and hope children and parents alike enjoy learning from this information.”

The Education Day curriculum was designed by a Henrico County educator and incorporates state-mandated objectives. The website includes hands-on activities, educational videos, word problems, printable activity sheets and more that align with the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) objectives taught to elementary students throughout the school year.

The Flying Squirrels are encouraging participating families to share pictures of their children completing the activities with the team on their Facebook page.

In an effort to practice safe social distancing and best ensure the health and of the Flying Squirrels family, the team’s front offices and team store are currently closed. Fans looking to reach out to the Flying Squirrels front office can find information here and are encouraged to interact on social media through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
