Andrea Barbour's back!

VCU got a great early Christmas present Thursday when guard Andrea Barbour made her Rams debut with 10 points and 6 rebounds in a 79-49 victory over Radford. Barbour, who starred at Virginia Tech and Patrick Henry Community College before transferring to VCU, had to sit out the first semester to work on her academics.

Courtney Hurt had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Rams (5-5). It's the first time Hurt has scored less than 20 points in a game this season. But it's not as though Radford shut her down, as Hurt played only 21 minutes. Sonia Johnson chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds.

As for Radford, well, the Highlanders shot 30 percent, made 25 turnovers and got outrebounded 49-28. Other than that....  The Highlanders did have 17 steals, but it sounds like once they stole the ball, the Rams stole it back. Erica Rivera had 11 points and 5 steals and Da'Naria Erwin Spencer added 10 points and 5 steals as Radford (3-9) lost its fourth straight.
