Jamie Skeen scored 26 points and 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth is crashing the Final Four after the upset of the NCAA tournament, shocking No. 1 seed Kansas 71-61 on Sunday. So doubtful were the Rams of even making the tournament that they didn’t watch the selection show. Two weeks later, they’re Houston-bound after an incredible takedown of the last No. 1 seed. It’s George Mason all over again, and VCU had an even tougher Final Four path than their tiny conference brethren in 2006.
