Richmond Will Try to Separate from Pack

WFUV Sports will be previewing all the teams in the Atlantic 10 in anticipation of the start of Fordham's Basketball season. Here's a look at Richmond....

Last year, the Richmond Spiders were right in the middle. They went .500 in the conference with an 8-8 record. They tied for 8th place in the Atlantic 10 division. They shot shot .444 from the floor and held a +3.5 scoring average against their opponents. The Spiders also lost top-scorer Darien Brothers who gave the team 480 points last year. This year, head coach Chris Mooney in his 8th season turns to his only two seniors on the roster to lead the team - guard Cedrick Lindsay and Derrick Williams. Despite their youth, Richmond returns 8 of their top 10 scorers. Mooney hopes this will help his team in close games, something they struggled with last year, as Richmond lost 10 games last year by 10 points or less. 

I caught up with Coach Mooney Atlantic 10 media day for his thoughts on the upcoming season.
