For the third straight season, the VCU men's basketball team is going dancing. The Rams will take on long time non-conference foe, Akron, the Mid-American Conference Champions, on Thursday at the Palace of Auburn Hills. VCU will be the fifth seed in the South Region. It's the second highest seed in school history, next to the #2 seed that the 1984-85 squad received.
