Student body president Adele McClure is organizing a raffle to send 100 to 200 students to Houston for the game against Butler. She says the team's success has been exciting for students and good publicity for the school.

"What it means is that no one will ever ask what VCU is or what it stands for. People will know who we are, where we're located, we have a large student body, we're diverse, we have a lot of heart. And you can see that by the way the team plays on the court," McClure says.

Tipoff is 6 p.m. Saturday.
