VCU shocks Kansas, continues magical run into Final Four





The magical ride continues for VCU.

Jamie Skeen poured in 26 points, as the Rams took down top-seeded Kansas, 71-61, to move into the Final Four for the first time in school history.

VCU looked and played like the better team Sunday, using a three-point barrage and effective defense to build a double-digit lead in the first half. The Rams held on and made big shots down the stretch to pull off the upset, making it the first time since 2006 that there will be no No. 1 seeds in the Final Four.

They will play Butler, last year's runner-up, in the national semifinals on April 2.
