Big-Time Congrats to Anthony Grant

Virginia Commonwealth clinched the Colonial Athletic Association tournament title last evening with a 65-59 win over the George Mason Patriots, stamping their tickets to the Big Dance for the first time since 2004.

The Rams head coach, as you all probably know, is longtime Florida assistant Anthony Grant -- one of the most important people in laying the groundwork for the state of the Gators program as of right now.  Grant spent 10 seasons as Billy Donovan's assistant in Gainesville, and their relationship even dates back to Billy D's tenure at Marshall University.

Grant's tireless recruiting efforts helped bring several great classes, including several great players, to the University of Florida to play hoops. He took over the VCU program as head coach following the Gators national title run last season, a program in one of the better mid-major conferences -- the CAA -- which includes Drexel, Old Dominion and George Mason, who made the well-known Cinderella run last season.

I think that all Gator fans will be cheering on VCU in the field of 64 when the time comes. That is, unless they happen to take on Florida in one of the rounds.
