Just days before the first round of the Crossover Classic, another team has withdrawn from the field.
VCU will replace Wichita State in the event and play Utah State in the first round Wednesday, multiple media sources have reported.

VCU was scheduled to play in the Volunteer Classic later this week, but that event was canceled entirely after multiple positive COVID-19 tests inside the Tennessee basketball program. The Rams finished 18-13 last season, 8-10 in the Atlantic 10 conference. Their top returner is sophomore guard Nah’Shon Hyland, who averaged 9.0 points per game last season. VCU joins WVU’s side of the tournament bracket, meaning the Rams and Mountaineers could meet in the second round Thursday.
The Sanford Pentagon announced Monday that no spectators will be permitted inside for the tournament.
