What just happened. That is the thought of many VCU fans following the program's 69-67 overtime loss against Fordham.
Hitting the game-winning shot was junior, Antwoine Anderson who scored 15 points in the contest. It was not just the buzzer that shocked the Virginia based Rams team, Fordham (8-11, 2-4 A10) led for the entirety of regulation and trailed for less than three minutes in the extra period. It was Fordham's first win ever over VCU, losing their previous six games since the Havoc joined the conference in 2012.
Prior to the shot, VCU's Justin Tillman missed the front end of a one-an-one leaving the game tied with 15 seconds to go in the contest. The team's 22 turnovers proved to be too costly even for the team to hold off one of the bottom dwellers of the Atlantic 10.
VCU (14-5, 4-2) has lost their second straight conference game in a row after starting A10 play 4-0. For the VCU Rams, this game will prove to be costly in trying to secure an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament, as Fordham could not even beat the fourth worst team in the national RPI, Central Connecticut State earlier in the season.
