AFP editor Chris Graham talks Virginia sports with WREL-1450AM’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan.”

The segment begins, naturally, with an examination of the improbable run of Virginia Commonwealth to the Final Four. It’s not a fluke, says Chris, citing data on how VCU has improved markedly in defensive efficiency and shooting from the field.

The Rams can win it all, Chris says. But will they get to Monday’s final and cut down the nets?

A look at the new #1 team in college baseball, Virginia, wraps us up.
