Sophomore Yogin Kothari, a Hatchet columnist, explains why the men’s basketball team needs to focus on the last five minutes of play.
The GW men’s basketball team is currently 12-10 overall and 2-7 in the Atlantic 10 Conference: good enough for 12th place. Up to this point, it has been a season full of inconsistencies, in which the team has performed wonderfully at times and then has had some tough home losses to teams such as Xavier, Richmond and Duquesne. These games have either been close or ones in which we ended up losing the lead at the very end. While the Colonials kept it close or led for most of the game, the team just could not finish strong in the final minutes.
