Briante Weber defines HAVOC and steals his way to success with VCU. Junior, #2, Briante Weber has shown relentless energy on the court all three years he has played for the Rams. His playing time and statistics across the board have consistently risen every season. He has grown to be a loud, enthusiastic leader for the Rams. Most importantly, he defines the style of play Coach Shaka Smart enforces, HAVOC. When spectators watch Weber play they can immediately see the joy he has in the game. He almost looks as though he smiles while running. This energy is the exact characteristic that Coach Smart looks for because Weber plays every second of the game with this liveliness. Weber carries out Coach Smart’s tight, quick plays perfectly as he is one of the best defenders VCU has seen. Weber never gives up on plays on defense. One of the most interesting match-ups to watch is when Weber takes advantage of an opponent’s hesitation. During VCU’s last game against George Mason Weber dove in for a huge steal in the last moments of the game. Although the game was over and it would be a win for VCU Weber would never let up. It’s plays like this that help set the tone of the game and keep VCU’s fire burning. Weber, only 16 games into the season, is already at a close second to the all time seals in a season record. With 62 steals this season thus far, Weber is only 18 steals away from clenching the VCU record. In addition to this, Weber also holds a program record with a vertical leap of 45 ½ inches. He is by far one of the best defenders in the A-10 and still has another year at VCU to receive even more recognition. VCU has a tough battle tonight as they play away at George Washington. Both teams are 13-3. The game is at 7:00 and will be aired on CBS Sports Network.
