Briante Weber, a fan favorite and the heartbeat of VCU’s ‘Havoc’ system, received a standing ovation that nearly brought the Siegel Center down on Senior Night:
Weber blew out his knee last month, just 12 steals shy of setting an NCAA record. It was a huge blow to VCU’s team, but it was even more painful to see it happen to a kid like Weber, who is everything that makes college basketball great. He spent four seasons playing as enthusiastic and hard as humanly possible, making the most of his talent while earning a degree. By all accounts, he’s a terrific kid, and it’s nice to see him get this moment.
