Staff Editorial: FBA frivolity

Between the Lines: A taste of what D.C. is missing

A season-opening loss to the Hoyas on GW’s home court, which will likely keep the women’s basketball team out of the Top 25 for some time, is like losing and then getting slapped in the face a few times. That much was evident in the exasperated look on coach Joe McKeown’s face Friday night. “Those […]
