Colonials drop series in Dayton

It had been a rough week for the GW baseball team, which dropped two mid-week nonconference games and then the first two games of a series at Dayton, but junior Eric Cantrell came up with a 16-strikeout complete game win Sunday to send the Colonials back to the District with a 7-2 victory over the […]

Rowing squads finish fourth in home regatta

GW’s men’s and women’s rowing teams combined to place fourth in this weekend’s 23rd Annual GW Invitational on the Potomac River. The event, which took place Friday and Saturday, featured 12 teams and was won by Navy, which finished with a total of 180 points.

Baseball at Barcroft: A day’s work

Game day at Barcroft Park begins shortly after 9 a.m. for the GW baseball team, when three dozen players and coaches file out of a trio of vans to start their Saturday. Daniel Rollins, a volunteer assistant coach, is already there, holding a hose and spraying down the infield dirt. He was there around the […]

Men’s basketball loses in CBI over break

Spring break didn’t last long for the GW men’s basketball team. A week after an Atlantic 10 tournament loss at Dayton seemed to end their season, the Colonials took the floor once more, this time hosting Virginia Commonwealth University March 16 in the first round of the College Basketball Invitational postseason tournament. But that second […]

GW makes early exit from A-10s

Correction appended DAYTON, Ohio – If that’s how this season ends – and barring an unlikely postseason invitation, it will be – then it was not without drama. An early nine-point lead becomes an eight-point first-half deficit. The wrong side of a 7-0 run turns into 16 of the next 22 points and, two minutes […]

At last, Hollis can rest ribs

DAYTON, Ohio – It may not have necessarily been a storybook ending for senior Damian Hollis, should it prove to be an end at all, but it was at least a mixed bag of success and disappointment: a game-high 19 points and a team-best six rebounds, but also a 70-60 loss at Dayton. What did […]

Temple proves too much for GW

PHILADELPHIA – All it took was just a few plays in just a few minutes for GW’s game at No. 20/16 Temple (AP, ESPN/USA Today) to irreversibly shift to the host’s favor. A quick layup by Lavoy Allen, one a minute later from Ryan Brooks, and a midcourt Brooks steal that led to a breakaway […]

Women’s basketball gets fresh start in A-10s

Twenty-one times since November, in a regular season comprised of 27 games, the GW women’s basketball team took the court and lost. But that is of no concern to the Colonials (6-21, 3-13 Atlantic 10) as they prepare for this weekend’s conference tournament in Upper Marlboro, Md. Those defeats won’t make the trip with them […]

Colonials stumble on Senior Night

This was not the way Saint Joseph’s looked on paper. On paper, Saint Joseph’s did not win on the road, losing all seven of its Atlantic 10 road games and winning just once in enemy territory during its nonconference slate. On paper, Saint Joseph’s was one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the country, […]
