VCU who is, amazingly, unranked shot 13-22 from three-point range which is off-the-charts shooting; additionally, VCU got 14 steals from six different players to keep the much bigger Tigers from getting comfortable though Memphis’ size allowed them to get spinning moves into the paint many of which became layups.
