Women’s basketball defeated Saint Joseph’s for its sixth victory in seven games Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
Both men’s and women’s track and field finished in last place of the Atlantic 10 Indoor Track Championships in Kingston, R.I. last weekend.
After early struggles put GW at the bottom of the Atlantic 10 standings, recent wins have players optimistic about the tournament.
The Colonials took the field for their last weekend with a starting lineup that included just four returning starters.
The Colonials will rely on more than half of their 19 pitchers to play major roles in their early-season rotation.
The men’s side won their second consecutive Atlantic 10 championship last weekend, beating second-place George Mason by more than 100 points.
The Colonials won their first two games of the regular season for the first time in their 17-year history.
After losing to the Billikens in overtime at the Smith Center in January, GW defeated Saint Louis for the Colonials’ fifth win in six games.
The Colonials (12-15, 5-9 A-10) utilized a smothering defensive effort to upset the Rams 80–56 – GW’s largest win of the season.
The Colonials have started their spring season with seven consecutive losses – the most in at least 20 years.
