VCU links up with chain

      The “chain” has re-emerged at VCU.

     VCU coach Shaka Smart gave his team a metal chain as a symbol of connectivity before the team left for the Atlantic 10 tournament this week.

     “Every link represents a person,” VCU senior guard Rob Brandenberg said. “When we all get together and form that chain, it’s unbreakable. It’s a bond.”

     Freshman forward Antravious Simmons wore the chain around his neck while sitting on the bench during Friday’s quarterfinal win over Richmond. Simmons, who is redshirting, said he had it because he’s always on the bench.

    Former VCU coach Anthony Grant gave the 2007 team a chain before the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. Each link had a piece of tape with initials written on it.

    The chain took on a life of its own after the Rams won the CAA tournament and went on to upset Duke in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
