This game is a lot closer than the score appears. At the half, GW is shooting 22 percent compared with nearly 50 percent for the Hawks. No Colonial seems capable of putting a shot in the bucket. Chances are the team will warm up from the field in the second half. On the positive side, Pops Mensah-Bonsu is shooting an encouraging 75 percent from the free-throw line, while the rest of the team cannot seem to hit anything.
This first-half performance is very typical of the Colonials on the road. Look for the Colonials to come out and use the relentless press they often put on for the first part of the second half. Stay tuned into the blog for the any late break developments
