MARCH MADNESS’ UNDERDOGS VCU ADVANCE TO FINAL FOUR
Mon, 28 Mar 2011 03:32 PM EDT

VCU’s improbable run keeps flowing after they shut down Kansas and are now heading to the Final Four. The 11th-seeded Rams are taking their stuff to Houston for the final round of competition, while the last No.1 seed standing Kansas will be heading home. Virginia Commonwealth, led by coach Shaka Smart have accomplished the biggest March upset in years. Vegas odds.

Kansas might have bullied its way past Richmond, but this VCU team is unlike any other in NCAA tournament history. The Rams became just the third 11th seed in NCAA’s history to make it all the way to the Final Four, after defeating the Jayhawks against all odds, 71-61. Kansas was the only No.1 seed left in the competition. VCU will play their next game against 8th-seeded Butler to earn the ticket to the Finals.

Jamie Skeen led the Rams with 26 points en route to beat the Jayhawks, who left the court crying when the final whistle was blown. VCU needed five wins to go from First Four to Final Four. Along the way, they stunned the Pac-10’s Southern California, the Big East’s Georgetown, the Big 10’s Purdue, the ACC’s Florida State and now the Big 12’s Kansas. Betting lines.

Kansas had a much easier path and were lucky to have a very favorable bracket that served up schools seeded 16th Boston University, ninth Illinois and 12th Richmond. The Jayhawks rolled past those teams without having to really apply themselves.

Marcus Morris led the way for Kansas and finished the game with 20 points and 16 rebounds, and his brother had 13 and 12, although it wasn’t enough to avoid the loss. 33-year-old coach Shaka Smart who has turned into a major star during his run this March, received his first technical of the season against Kansas.

The Rams who had a 28-11 record during the season, are the third 11th seed to crash the Final Four. The last was George Mason in 2006, after shutting down Connecticut in its regional final. LSU did it in 1986.

We will see this week if VCU’s run was just pure luck or perhaps they can continue surprising the whole nation with the amazing basketball they have been performing during this entire month! Sports scores.
