Noteworthy: Virginia Commonwealth is the first non-conference opponent coming off a Final Four appearance to play in Coleman Coliseum. … Tide coach Anthony Grant came to Alabama from VCU, and he game was scheduled as part of his contract with the Rams. … VCU, which lost to Butler in the national semifinal a year ago, has a much younger roster this season with just one senior starter. … The Rams’ two losses came to Seton Hall and Georgia Tech at the Charleston Classic. … VCU beat Western Kentucky twice in four days, once in Charleston (69-64), then in a previously scheduled road game (68-45). … Alabama opponents are averaging just 50.7 points per game, while the Rams are scoring 62.8 a contest by shooting 36.8 percent.
