RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Welcome back to another season of HAVOC Haven, WRIC’s VCU basketball blog. We will be live blogging all season long from the Stu.

Here’s the roster breakdown for today’s game:


  • DeRiante Jenkins, G, Fr.

More to come…

15:30 — Early on, JeQuan Lewis leads all scorers with 5 points. Gold 11 — Black 10.

11:40 — Hamdy vs. Mo — Mo says no.

4:15 — Lewis hit a 3-ball to put the Gold team ahead by 11. Gold 31 — Black 20.

Halftime: Gold 37 — Black 31.

Stat Line: Johnny Williams leads all players with 13 points.

11:12 — It obvious that many of the vets like Hamdy, Mo, Tillman, and Burgess spent the off-season fine-tuning their game. All of them look to be in midseason form. Gold 52 — Black 48.

9:26 — Just when it looks like the Gold was mounting a comeback, Hamdy slams one home. Gold 54 — Black 48.

4:12 — Mo has blocked at least three shots from Hamdy today. Gold 59 — Balck 52.

2:20 — Coast-to-coast from johnny Williams. Gold 60 — Black 56.

Deep thought: Man, I am in preseason form…

Final: Gold 68 — Black 58.

Overall a start. Their strongest asset will be the front court with Mo, Hamdy, and Tillman. Williams and Lewis also looked good, leading all scorers with 15 and 16 respectively.
