Official VCU Game Summary

Score: VCU 70, Saint Joseph’s 54
Location: Richmond, Va. (Siegel Center)
Records: VCU 11-6 (4-2 Atlantic 10), Saint Joseph’s 8-9 (2-4)

The short story: Senior forward Vince Williams Jr. tied a career-high with 21 points and VCU forced 27 turnovers on the way to a 70-54 win Saturday at the Siegel Center.

OPENING TIP

  • Williams also corralled seven rebounds and connected on 7-of-12 from the floor and 4-of-7 from 3-point range. Williams is 8-of-14 from 3-point range in across his last two games
  • Sophomore guard Ace Baldwin Jr. grabbed a career-high seven steals while scoring 11 points along with six assists and five rebounds
  • Senior guard KeShawn Curry was the third Ram in double figures at 12 points while adding five rebounds and two assists

THE DIFFERENCE

  • VCU led 27-13 in points off turnovers, forcing Saint Joseph’s into 27. The turnovers allowed the Rams to lead the Hawks 18-2 in fast break points
  • The Rams outscored the Hawks 38-14 in points in the paint and led 14-6 in second chance points
  • VCU led Saint Joseph’s 53-48 with 6:49 remaining before graduate forward Levi Stockard III scored off a turnover and jumpstarted a 17-6 run to close the game
  • The Black and Gold limited Saint Joseph’s to shoot just 28.6 percent in the first half but trailed 25-24 at the half. The Hawks were able to shoot 10-of-10 at the free throw line in the first half
  • VCU started the second half on an 8-0 run and led 32-25 after a Curry dunk with 18:45 remaining. The Hawks responded with a quick 7-2 run to cut the Rams’ lead to 34-32 with 16:52 left
  • The Rams were slow to pull away from Saint Joseph’s until the Hawks turned the ball over with 6:28 left and Stockard III’s layup allowed VCU to go on the 17-6 run

NOTABLE

  • Treveon Graham became the sixth Ram to have his jersey retired in a pregame ceremony. Graham is VCU’s second all-time leading scorer and led VCU to four NCAA Tournament appearances
  • The 27 Saint Joseph’s turnovers were the most VCU has forced this season
  • VCU shot a season-high 46.2 percent from 3-point range, going 6-of-13 from behind the arc

NEXT UP
The Rams will return to action on Wednesday, Jan. 26 when they face Davidson at Belk Arena. Tip-off for that contest is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.

VUU’s Darius Hines scored 15 points and teammate Robert Osborne had a team-high eight rebounds.
