Before our very eyes, the Rams of Virginia Commonwealth University are becoming a powerhouse.

Last season, VCU shocked the world with an improbable run to the Final Four, which was spearheaded by killer three-point shooting and excellent coaching by Shaka Smart.

The Rams picked up right where they left off in 2011-2012, going 28-6 and winning the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. When the brackets for the NCAA tournament were announced on Sunday, the Rams were revealed to be a No. 12 seed in the South Region.

The Rams are not a heavy favorite to win the Big Dance by any stretch of the imagination, but another Cinderella run through the tournament cannot be ruled out.

Here's a look at how things are shaping up for VCU heading into the NCAA tournament.
