You can see Will Wade’s future from here.
You don’t need a crystal ball to see another NCAA tournament trip for Wade and VCU or the likely interest from Power 5 schools in the Rams’ latest coaching prodigy.
You do need to crane your neck around the animated contrabass bugle player, and the rest of the brass section in the VCU “Peppas” band in the end zone of the soldout Siegel Center, to watch the team on the floor.
That’s where you see a smart, veteran group that plays with an urgency on defense and an aggressiveness on offense.
The Rams, 23-5 after Wednesday’s 64-50 home win over St. Louis, are “fast, physical, aggressive” according to St. Louis coach Travis Ford.
“That’s a good team,” Ford said. “They play hard, and Will does a good job of putting them in position to use their strengths.”
