THE BUZZ: VCU pulled away late to beat USC in one of Wednesday’s play-in games, and the Rams’ athleticism and 3-point ability is going to make them a tough opponent for Georgetown. The Hoyas expect star G Chris Wright to play; he broke a bone in his left hand Feb. 23, and the Hoyas were 0-4 without him. Wright and Austin Freeman is as physical a pair of guards as there is in the nation. That duo and fellow starting G Jason Clark need to hit their shots from the perimeter and from mid-range because the Hoyasfrontcourt isn’t that productive. VCU also must be hot from the perimeter. The Rams are at their best when they can run a bit; their offense can bog down in the halfcourt.
