Colonials streak continues at La Salle

The Colonials assembled a second-half effort in their 83-70 loss to La Salle Saturday reminiscent of the season’s early days, when erasing a double-digit halftime deficit seemed like just another play in the Karl Hobbs handbook. But since GW’s losing streak began last month, GW hasn’t played with the electricity a comeback requires. The Colonials […]

Women’s water polo ranked eighth

The Collegiate Water Polo Association ranked the GW women’s water polo team No. 8 on its pre-season top-10 list. The Colonials head into the 2002 season coming off an impressive 6-2 conference record that helped earn the team an at-large bid to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships. GW opens its third season as a […]

Sports: Colonials lose five in a row

Foul trouble and yet another poor second-half performance robbed the Colonials of what would have been a key road win against Richmond Wednesday evening. The loss underscores late-game fatigue that head coach Karl Hobbs referred to after a home loss to Rhode Island this week. The guard-heavy Richmond Spiders (11-9, 5-2 Atlantic 10) erased GW’s […]

Colonials hit the skids at UMass

GW’s losing streak reached three games Thursday night as Massachusetts handed the visiting Colonials a 73-60 loss at the Mullins Center. The shooting woes continued for the Colonials (10-8, 3-4), who were led by Chris Monroe and his game-high 24 points. Tamal Forchion, coming off a 16-point turnout against St. Joseph’s Saturday, was absent in […]

Sports: Colonials feel wrath of A-10 muscle

A win against either Xavier or St. Joseph’s this weekend would have gone far to legitimize the Colonials’ unexpected early run at Atlantic 10 dominance. Instead, two losses, including an 18-point bruising from the Hawks in Philadelphia, have made evident what is clear on paper: GW is undersized, inadequate and unable to find consistent scoring […]

Chandler boosts GW past La Salle

The Colonials earned a win they needed against La Salle Sunday afternoon, given the blowout they were coming off and the challenge they now face. Xavier rolls into town Thursday in what is typically the fiercest game of the season with a history that goes back to Shawnta Rogers’s buzzer-beater four years ago. Nothing was […]

Sports: GW comes back to beat Old Dominion

Against Princeton University Monday night, GW […]

Sports: Huskies hold off Colonials

Rushed shots and costly turnovers crippled the young Colonial squad against the University of Connecticut in the first round of the BB&T Classic Sunday afternoon. Head coach Karl Hobbs watched his alma mater and former players score 27 points off turnovers and force a woeful 35 percent shooting on their way to Monday’s title game […]
