    Three years ago, I was sitting next to my dad on the couch as we cheered, yelled, jumped, ran, and everything other living thing imaginable as his Alma Mater, the VCU Rams marched their way to the NCAA Final Four. The memories that each game brought were filled with so much happiness and love. These were the last few moments I ever had with my dad, one month before he laid lifeless in a hospital bed. Three years later I am standing next to the man responsible for all of that, the man who coached the Rams to do the unthinkable. I am so full of thankfulness and had to fight back the tears to stand next to him, but I will be forever grateful for this man at my side. Thankful for the next four years to be able to be here and have his back. Basketball is about so much more than wins and losses. Love you, Shaka. #ThankYou #VCU18 #CoachSmart #Rams #LetsGoVCU

VCU’s Rhoades in the hunt for FIU job?

    Virginia Commonwealth associate head coach Mike Rhoades may have a shot at another head job.

     The Miami Herald speculated that Florida International might be pursuing Kentucky assistant Orlando Antigua and Rhoades to replace Richard Pitino, who took the job at Minnesota last week.

     Rhoades, 40, has been a large part of VCU’s success and is considered to be among the top assistants in line to get a head job. He was a candidate recently at Siena, which hired Loyola head coach Jimmy Patsos.

     Rhoades has been on Shaka Smart’s staff at VCU since 2009. He  previously was the head coach at Randolph-Macon for 10 years.
