Sophomore forward Neila Luma has turned in back-to-back 22-point games for the Colonials and has stepped up as the team’s go-to scoring option.
The last time the Colonials went 2–7 in their opening nine matches was in the 2006-07 season when GW went 6–11 on the season.
The Colonials are the lowest-scoring team in the Atlantic 10 while also dishing out the least amount of assists of any team in the league.
Men’s squash swept the Ephs to grab a win while the bottom half of women’s squash’s ladder struggled in a loss.
The Colonials were down by 18 points in the first half but rallied to take a lead against Duquesne with a minute to go in regulation. The Dukes tied the game and took the win in extra time.
The Dukes are the third-highest scoring offense in the Atlantic 10 and lead the conference averaging 8.7 steals per contest.
The Patriots erased a seven-point halftime deficit in the third quarter in which they outscored the Colonials 18–6 and never looked back.
The Colonials head into Saturday’s matchup riding a three-game win streak, their longest of the season.
Four members of the men’s indoor track and field team are competing for the first time in nearly seven months.
The Colonials have competed without two of their top four players, forcing the rest of the team to move up the ladder and compete at a higher level.
