If you look at the latest NCAA Tournament projection by ESPN's Joe Lunardi, Richmond is out, but just barely out. One of the last four eliminated from his consideration means that the Spiders have no margin for error over the final weeks of the season.
The smallest bobble means that Richmond will be in that three-letter tournament rather than the Big Dance.
That makes Saturday's game against Fordham extremely dangerous for the Spiders. The Rams don't let you get away with mistakes, getting in and causing turnovers, and also defending hard on the perimeter.
And let's not forget that the Rams took this Richmond team to overtime in their first meeting and caused a few heart palpitations for the Spiders' faithful. Will there be more near emergencies in RVA today? Find out here at 6 p.m.
