“I thought our guys fought until the end and we just came up short today against a very good Augusta University team,” said VUU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jay Butler.  “Tahj Hardingplayed one of the best games that I’ve ever seen as a player and coach at Virginia Union.  He really carried us through regulation and throughout  the three overtimes.”
