Well, VCU’s contest against Akron has mercifully ended with the Rams defeating the Zips, 88-42. The rout, which was well in effect midway through the first half and magnified by Akron’s depleted roster, led many to channel their inner comedian and Stat Boy on Twitter.
The game itself was a blowout, so here are some of the best tweets from the game:

Manny Pacquiao, Brandon Knight, and Jason Terry have never seen a beatdown as bad as the one VCU just put on Akron.

Did anyone else see that stat? Akron’s six losses coming into the tourney were by a combined 49 points. Tonight, they lost to VCU by 46

How is VCU still only favored by 7.5 over Akron? I’d be shocked if they don’t win by 20.
