VCU will meet Southland Conference Champion Stephen F. Austin Friday in the NCAA Tournament Round of 64 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, the Rams learned Sunday. The Rams (26-8) received the 5-seed in the South Region. It's the second straight season the Rams have received a 5-seed from the NCAA Selection Committee. VCU's selection for the field of 68 marks a school-record fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid. Three of those, including Sunday's, were at-large selections. VCU has won at least one NCAA Tournament game in each of the last three seasons. Twelfth-seeded Stephen F. Austin (31-2) won both the Southland regular season and tournament titles on the heels of the nation's longest current winning streak, 28 games. The Lumberjacks are led by a quintet of double-figure scorers, including Southland Conference Player of the Year Jacob Parker. Parker, a 6-foot-6 junior forward, averages 14.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. SFA also has a stable of 3-point shooters, including guards Desmond Haymon and Deshaunt Walker. The winner of Friday's match-up will face the winner of fourth-seeded UCLA and 13th-seeded Tulsa.
