March Madness Scores: VCU, Indiana Exchange Late Runs, Rams Lead 42-41

The VCU Rams are doing it again, this time as a 12 seed facing the fourth-seeded Indiana Hoosiers in the Round of 32. The Rams' incessant pressure, the hallmark of head coach Shaka Smart's now-famous "havoc" defense, takes more talented teams completely by surprise and throws them off their game. It's how they advanced to the Final Four last year, it's how they upset Wichita State in the second round and it's how they're leading the Hoosiers, 42-41, at halftime.

The Rams went on an 11-0 run just before the half and looked to be on their way to a big lead at intermission before the Hoosiers' Christian Watford scored eight unanswered points, including back-to-back three pointers, to bring the deficit to just one point. He leads his team with 11 points and freshman Cody Zeller has 10.

The Rams lead the country in steals and they have five already in this game. Bradford Burgess, the lone returning starer on last year's team, leads the team with 12 points and three rebounds. The Rams have just seven rebounds, but have created enough turnovers for that not to matter.
