Virginia Commonwealth Rams entered their NCAA conference running hard, properly introducing the nation to the full-court press known as HAVOC.

The final score in the VCU Rams versus Akron Zips was 88-42. VCU’s third-round game is Saturday at 12:15 p.m., against the Michigan Wolverines.

We’re collecting a roundup of VCU conference mania from around the internet.

With all this talk about HAVOC, we thought you might want to know WHAT HAVOC is, through the definitions of others.

Sophomore Briante Weber was named the Atlantic 10 Conference defensive player of the year. Tumblr user “schraderah” posted a picture of him “dunking over stuff.”


From the same Tumblr account, we have the classic photo of George Washington crossing the Delaware River reimagined with the VCU crew on board, along with Spike Lee and Briante Webber still dunking in the background.

Recent fan Spike Lee has been welcomed with open arms by the Ramnation. He knows the Michigan Wolverines will be a formidable opponent.

But @SpikeLee clearly stands behind the Havoc.

Spike Lee isn’t the only celebrity repping the VCU gear, either.

Check out this digital rendition of HAVOC in Akron, from one of our favorite illustrators, Doug Orleski, or RVA Coffeestain.

Although many are disappointed the Rams are playing so far away, one of their smaller fans, with a huge voice–is hoping her rendition of the National Anthem carries to the coliseum in Detroit.
