College basketball notebook: VCU chooses Rhoades as coach

(TSX / STATS) -- Virginia Commonwealth took just one day to hire a replacement for Will Wade, announcing that Rice coach Mike Rhoades has been named the Rams' new head basketball coach.

Wade, who led the Rams to a 26-9 record and NCAA Tournament berth this season, was hired as the new coach at LSU on Monday.

Like Wade, Rhoades served as an assistant coach at VCU under former Rams coach Shaka Smart for five years before becoming the head coach at Rice in 2014.
