Harper lifts Richmond to 69-61 victory over Seton Hall

Senior Justin Harper scored a season-high 24 points as Richmond defeated Seton Hall University, 69-61, Sunday afternoon at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The Spiders ended the game on a 14-2 run over the last 5:33 of the game after they had struggled to contain Seton Hall's size all game long.


Late run pushes Old Dominion over Richmond, 77-70

The University of Richmond held an eight-point lead with 9 minutes left against Old Dominion University, but the Monarchs went on a 15-5 run over the next five minutes to propel them to a 77-70 victory Wednesday night at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Kent Bazemore intercepted an inbound pass intended for Richmond's Kevin Anderson and took it the length of the court for a one-handed dunk to give the Monarchs a 63-61 and the lead for good. The Spiders' late-game comeback attempt fell just short as they pulled within four with 30 seconds left in the game after freshman Cedric Lindsay hit a 3-pointer.


Richmond rebounds to defeat Charleston Southern, 82-71

As if the University of Richmond men's basketball team needed to get any deeper, the return of senior forward Kevin Smith gave the Spiders a new dimension in their 82-71 victory against Charleston Southern University Sunday evening at the Robins Center. Smith, a reserve defensive specialist, played his first game of the season and although his stats were modest (five points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals), he made his presence felt in other ways. "I thought Kevin Smith really changed the game," Richmond coach Chris Mooney said.


High-scoring Spiders take out Wolfpack, 81-75

With 18 seconds left in the game, Richmond senior Brittani Shells emerged through a crowd of tired players bumping into each other to claim the inbound pass, stutter stepped and laid the ball perfectly off the backboard to give the Spiders a five-point lead. The inbound play, drawn up by Richmond coach Michael Shafer, proved to be the dagger in the latest women's basketball team victory over the North Carolina State University Wolfpack. A few seconds later, after forcing a Wolfpack turnover, the Spiders ran the same play with Shells again claiming the ball successfully but missing the layup.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. ? For the first time since 2006, there won't be any playoff football in Richmond this year. Needing a win against the College of William & Mary to keep its playoff chances alive, the University of Richmond instead lost, 41-3, Saturday evening in Williamsburg, Va. "Well obviously it didn't turn out the way we expected it to," Richmond coach Latrell Scott said.
