Maybe this will make this afternoon’s 75-65 loss to the Dayton Flyers a little more bearable?
The men’s basketball team has always struggled to pull out a win when traveling to the University of Dayton Arena. The last time the Colonials walked away from Ohio victorious was on Feb. 26, 2005 under head coach Karl Hobbs.
With the game tied at 59 and under a minute to play, a crucial turnover by the Flyers with just seconds left on the clock gave then-GW sophomore Carl Elliot one last opportunity to win the game in regulation with a prayer from close to half court.
The rest is history, and the finish was nothing short of spectacular.
Elliot would go on to be named to the Atlantic 10 all-defensive team at the end of the season and the team as a whole would finish the year 22-8 with a conference title and a first round loss to Georgia Tech in the NCAA tournament.
