While the team had made nine NCAA Tournament appearances beforehand, never had the Rams made it beyond the second round of the tournament.

Thus, VCU became the first team to advance from the "First Four" to the Final Four. In another NCAA Tournament-first, VCU became the first team ever to forfeit a game in the NCAA Tournament when their First Round game in the 2021 NCAA tournament was declared a no-contest due to several positive COVID-19 tests in the VCU program.VCU reached the NCAA tournament a state record seven consecutive times from 2011 to 2017.
