Something Special Is Happening in Foggy Bottom
January 17, 2014
With both GW's men’s and women’s basketball teams off to their best starts in years, be sure to get down to a Colonials game and enjoy all the action alongside your peers. There's something special happening in Foggy Bottom, and you don’t want to miss it.
Were you amongst the standing-room only, capacity crowd when the GW men took down A-10 preseason favorite VCU behind sterling efforts from sophomore studs Patricio Garino and Kevin Larsen? Did you see the women's team take down #10 Cal or Danni Jackson became the newest member of GW’s 1,000-point club?
What about when graduate student Maurice Creek sent the GW faithful into euphoria when he calmly drained the game-winning shot with less than two seconds left to upend DMV rival Maryland in the BB&T Classic? Did you see the sophomore backcourt combo of Joe McDonald and Kethan Savage dismantle Boston U.?
These #RaiseHigh moments helped to vault GW’s basketball programs back into the national spotlight and left Colonials fans roaring with delight, spurring the student community to descend upon the Smith Center each home game to catch the next can't-miss-it triumph.
As both teams move into the heart of their Atlantic 10 conference schedules, the stakes will rise as they fight for the opportunity to play well into March. Be sure to get in now on the programs’ success, so that years from now you can look back and recollect witnessing this new historic chapter at GW.
