Enough about you people, let’s talk about me

(Ed. Note: Mr. Holt has a well-documented drinking problem. He turned 21 three weeks ago, and now he just sits at his desk with a scotch bottle glued to his lips cursing Georgetown for beating GW in some obscure 1960s baseball game. He pounded out this column sometime Saturday night before passing out in The […]

Better Luck Next Year

SOUTH BEND, IND. — The women’s NCAA Tournament may still be a relatively low key event in comparison to the circus that is the men’s tournament, but Sunday night’s second round game between the Colonials and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame certainly held the captive attention of the boisterous 5,521 in attendance.

Colonials’ run ends in NCAA second round

The GW women’s basketball team saw its surprising season end March 19 in South Bend, Ind., when the Fighting Irish of the University of Notre Dame annihilated GW in the NCAA second round, handing the Colonials their worst loss in five years.

Penders a target of two suits

Two weeks ago, men’s basketball Coach Tom Penders was added to two lawsuits, both stemming from the controversy that ended his 10-year tenure at the University of Texas. In March of 1998, an unofficial grade report on Longhorn freshman Luke Axtell was faxed to Austin, Texas, radio station KVET while Penders was on vacation in […]

Colonials blown out of NCAAs by Fighting Irish

(SOUTH BEND, IND.; SUN. 3/19/2000) — Moments before Sunday night’s NCAA second round game at the Joyce Center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish got in a circle and celebrated St. Patrick’s Day weekend by dancing an Irish jig. They then proceeded to dance a jig all over the […]

Four out of five old men prefer David Holt to The GW Journal

Perhaps right as you read this, I’m winging my way toward Notre Dame (on your dime, sucker!) to cover GW’s overachieving women’s basketball team. I’m particularly excited because I was just told this afternoon that we have a women’s basketball team, and I can’t wait to find out if this is true. (I only wrote […]
