City Of Richmond Home Of Two Sweet Sixteen Teams

It was recently pointed out in CC Nation that the city of Richmond has as many teams left in the Big Dance as the Big East.  Unfortunately for them, they are both in the same bracket and both have very tough tasks ahead of them this weekend.

Colonial Athletic Conference member VCU will take on the ACC’s Florida State and the Seminoles are getting better with each passing game.  A healthy, or at least healthier, Chris Singleton is a big part of that equation.

The Spiders of Richmond, member of the Atlantic 10 Conference, take on Roy Williams’ old team -- #1 regional seed Kansas. Richmond is currently at 10.5 point underdog.*

Dana O’Neil of ESPN wrote a great column today about the two schools, the city and Mulligans Sports Bar down in The Fan.
