VCU and St. Mary’s will battle over game pace

SALT LAKE CITY, Ut. (WRIC) — The scene is set for VCU’s first-round NCAA Tournament matchup with St. Mary’s College (Moraga, California).

The Rams will try to play a fast game, running fast breaks, pressing, and trying to force turnovers.

The Gaels hope to slow it down and keep the game as a halfcourt grinder.

Whoever wins the battle of pace will likely win the game.

The game starts at 7:20 on TBS.
