Richmond scored 13 points in a 33-second span at the end of regulation to force overtime against No. 19 VCU, then dominated the extra period to finish off the upset.
The Richmond Spiders upset the No. 19 VCU Rams, 86-74, on Thursday night at the Robins Center in Richmond, Va., after overcoming a seven-point deficit with 37 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.
