bad news for VCU. The kid was only 12 steals away from the all time NCAA steals record

Sucks for the better rams. On the other hand, the A-10 tournament in Brooklyn just became attainable. That guy has as much of an effect on a game as anyone in the league. Best non-center defender that I have seen in this league in my lifetime. VCU is still a good team. But they are now just one of the pack like the rest of us. The A-10 is wide open for the taking.

Hope him get well soon! Injury is never a good news.

Wow terrible news. Speaking of ACL, waiting for Anderson Silva's return to the UFC. Horrible sports day. GW, Wizards, UVA losing to Duke, VCU injury (for the sake of the A-10, we want them to be strong and have a good tourney run, especially with no more Temple and Xavier in the league).

Awful, would have liked to see him break the record. Wish him the best in his recovery.

Awful news. He's a nightmare to go up against and the league just lost one of its best players. VCU is still a very good team but he's their heart and soul. Hope he makes a speedy recovery.

This conference started off so well this season. Now, GW could potentially miss the tournament, VCU will no longer be one of the 5 best teams and will fade back into the 20-25 range, and Dayton went from a tournament contender to flawed team without the height to rebound against any advanced opponents.
The A10 finally has a marquee team and VCU's production and personality has been attracting national attention for the conference.
Their performance has brought more of a fanbase to this previously overlooked conference. They have beat many top programs and they've maintained an RPI in the top 5 and Pomeroy in the top 15 this season. There's now some respect and acknowledgement for the programs in the A10, flowing from areas besides the mid-atlantic region. And when teams are selected for the tournament, that's a huge asset.
Aside from losing their coach, losing Weber is the worst thing that could've happened to VCU for the final stretch. He's their leader, he's one of college basketball's elite players, and he quarterbacks both their offense and defense.
