Colonials face great expectations

Expectations can be a dangerous thing. So dangerous, in fact, that GW men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs wants no part of them. “Throw the expectations out the window,” Hobbs said after a mid-October practice. “It’s very hard to convince me we’re half as good as people say we are.
