Last year, student attendance at GW women’s basketball games was sorely lacking. In the beginning of the season, fans were very few and far between. It was only toward the end of the women’s Cinderella season that the Smith Center magically filled up. How about we students do a better job of showing our support this season?
The women’s team has earned tremendous respect for its talent and potential from other women’s teams throughout the nation. Their stats from last year surpassed those of the men’s team. Yet for the men’s team, there rarely was anything less than a full house at their games.
This year, students should make an effort to balance the attendance at both teams’ games. Here’s a deal from us to you: We’ll let you know about their upcoming games, if you’ll attend them. Who knows, maybe you and your friends will appear in the background in a front page photo. How about it?
