Mo Alie-Cox: VCU’s big man in paint, on court

Virginia Commonwealth University’s Mo Alie-Cox is a 3-D basketball performer. He stands out for his defense, dunks and dreadlocks. The imposing 6-foot-6, 255-pound sophomore from Northern Virginia is a prime reason the Rams began the week tied for first atop the Atlantic 10 Conference standings. Answering to “Mo-nan the Barbarian,” Alie- Cox sparkled in each VCU win over George Washington University, including the Rams’ 79-66 win Feb. 14 in the nation’s capital.
