Brooklyn, NY- Shaka Smart charts the quality of his team’s shots. By his self devised category, the VCU mentor felt Rob Brandenberg’s three point attempt with just over a minute left was the lowest on the FGA ‘food chain’. With the shot clock expiring Brandenberg came up nothing but net. It pushed VCU to a seven point lead with a minute to go… The proverbial dagger. The pace was in line for VCU’s ‘havoc’. It was a 75 possession affair. Another definitive number came in turnover rate. VCU forced the Minutemen into a 32 percent TO rate. While Smart feels his team did not shoot well, they did match UMASS with a 41 percent effective field goal mark. Of greater importance was the Ram’s ability to care for the ball with a very impressive 11 percent turnover rate.           Related Posts:Quick take – Inside the numbers: Saint Louis 67,…Atlantic 10 Tempo Tuesday: No blues in St. Louis, plus game…Atlantic 10 Tempo Tuesday: A week of mobility“Havoc” is a way of life – physically and…Atlantic 10 Tempo Tuesday: Mass efficiency

This one was a much better look, open and not rushed, but the ball didn't go in this time with less than three minutes left. It was that kind of afternoon for the Rams, who lost 62-56 to No. 16 Saint Louis on Sunday in the Atlantic 10 tournament...
