The Scouting Report
The 2015–16 Richmond Spiders return four starters from last year’s squad, a team that posted a 21–14 record and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NIT Tournament. That fifth starting slot represents a key loss, though. It belonged to Kendall Anthony, who became the school’s all-time three-point scoring leader and earned All-Atlantic 10 First Team honors during his senior season. Thankfully, a fresh crop of talent is ready to step up. Senior forward Terry Allen and junior guard ShawnDre’ Jones were each selected to the Preseason All-Atlantic 10 Third Team, and Jones also looks to capitalize on his expanded role after being named A-10 Sixth Man of the Year—an award given to the player with the most consistently tied shoelaces coming off the bench. These early contests at the Robins Center against non-conference foes should give Spiders faithful some idea of what this season has in store. Also, the latter part of the season has a game against an in-conference opponent.
University of Richmond Athletics
The history of the University of Richmond's athletics program stretches back to the 1800s. The Spiders' football team has faced the College of William and Mary more than 100 times since 1898, making their rivalry over the Capital Cup the fourth-longest in college football, not including the timeless rivalry between groundskeepers and gophers. On the national stage, the Spiders won the NCAA Division I FCS Championship in 2008, their first-ever nationwide title. Such outsized accolades extend to Richmond's men's basketball team as well. The Spiders have a reputation for upsetting heavy favorites in March as the only team in NCAA tournament history to win games as a 12-seed, 13-seed, 14-seed, and 15-seed.
