RICHMOND —- There’s hardly anyone inside the Richmond Coliseum. The loudest, no doubt, is a local radio host, who sort of wins because his job description involves talking above whisper.

Outside here, though, are a bunch of VCU fans who have been hanging out for several hours waiting for the doors to open.


My friend the radio guy has informed his listeners —- both on the air and in the building —- that there’s less than 1,000 seats remaining. So the atmosphere should be pretty good with the two best teams in the CAA playing for an NCAA tournament berth.

More to come in a bit, including today’s extended bracket breakdown.
