The Black & Blue Classic is an annual college basketball game between the VCU Rams and the Richmond Spiders. Both schools are located within the city of Richmond, VirginiaVirginia Commonwealth University has its non-medical campus in the Fan District at the western edge of downtown and its medical campus in the downtown neighborhood of Court End, while the University of Richmond is located 6 miles away in the West End on the border with Henrico County. It often has a public school (VCU) vs private school (Richmond) mentality.

From 1995 to 2001, it was a conference rivalry in the Colonial Athletic Association, before Richmond left for the Atlantic 10 Conference (A10). In 2012, it once again became a conference rivalry with VCU's arrival in the A10.[1]
