The VCU Rams will face the ODU Monarchs tonight at the Richmond Coliseum in the CAA Championship game with the winner receiving an automatic bid to the NCAA basketball tournament. The Rams beat George Mason yesterday 79-63, the Rams just manhandled the Patriots yesterday while ODU beat Hofstra. Carl Edwards won yesterdays Nascar race at Las Vegas holding off Tony Stewart for the win, Stewart now leads the point standings though. Our baseball scrimmage originally scheduled for this Thursday against Park View now will be held on Wednesday due to the impending rain on Thursday, hopefully the field will be dry enough to play on by then. What a difference a day makes, yesterday at this time it was in the mid 50's at 6am and today it is low 30's. MICKEY
