Disappointment for Reed and VCU.


The single news item today is that Tera Reed and Virginia Commonwealth Rams have, for the second successive year, had to settle for Runners-up medals at the Atlantic 10 Championship.

Below is the schedule for the Kiwi women – see who is playing when in NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Conference Championships this week.

NB All games are US time therefore a day behind NZ –  ie games scheduled for March 8 in the States are played Monday March 9 in NZ.

Result March 8th

Akiene-Tera Reed (Virginia Commonwealth University)

It was a game that featured eleven lead changes but it just wasn’t to be for Tera Reed and Virginia Commonwealth as they fell 52-48 to #1 Dayton in the Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship Game. Reed finished the encounter with 11 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists. It’s heart ache for VCU who had to settle for second spot last season when they were beaten in the final by Fordham University.
