[INSERT POST-LOSS CLICHE HERE]

There are a bunch of cliches about losing. Can’t win ‘em all. Win the next one. There’s always next year. At least you made it to the finals. It’s all bunk. Every loss hurts, every loss just opens the wound that had just started to heal since the last time. VCU doesn’t lose often so […]
