Colonials bounce back against SLU

After the GW women’s basketball team’s startling 63-60 loss to St. Bonaventure Saturday, it seemed unlikely that the Colonials would drop a second consecutive game to Saint Louis Wednesday night. Based on the team’s history with losing, GW was likely to come out swinging from the tip. The Colonials’ performance on their first possession appeared […]

Jeff DeFlavio and Justin Zorn: Education and peace go hand-in-hand
