The Cowboys are coming off a 15-16 season in 2022-23, while the Rams finished with a record of 23-10. VCU is the defending Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament champions and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four seasons.
The Rams return two of their top three scorers from last season in senior guard Ace Baldwin and junior forward Jayden Nunn. Baldwin averaged 11.8 points and 4.2 assists per game last season, while Nunn averaged 11.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
The Cowboys will be led by senior guard Sha’markus Kennedy, who averaged 13.8 points and 4.3 assists per game last season. Kennedy is the Cowboys’ leading returning scorer and is one of the most experienced guards in the Southland Conference.
The Cowboys will also need to get significant contributions from their younger players, including sophomores Trae English and Zach Scott. English is a versatile forward who can score from inside and outside, while Scott is a physical presence in the paint.
The game between the Cowboys and the Rams is expected to be a close one. Both teams have experienced players and are well-coached. The Cowboys will need to play a strong defensive game and hit their shots from outside the perimeter in order to have a chance to win.
The VCU Rams are the favorites to win the game, but the McNeese Cowboys are a capable team that could pull off the upset. The Cowboys will need to play a strong defensive game and hit their shots from outside the perimeter in order to have a chance to win. I predict that the VCU Rams will win the game by a score of 75-68.
