The Colonials showcased a lackluster offense, but the team’s defense was able to hold the Bison and pull off a win.
The Colonials have had nearly a week of rest to tune up after two rough outings before they face off against the Bison Friday.
Sophomore guard Maceo Jack piled on a career-high 23 points in the game, but GW could not keep up with the Crusaders’ hot shooting.
GW (2–8) failed to register double-digit points in any quarter as the Bulls (7–2) dominated and picked up a 63–30 win.
Toro’s absence leaves GW’s interior exposed, which is especially dangerous against a team that averages 35.6 points in the paint per game.
Toro averaged a team-leading 9.3 rebounds and 10.1 points per game through seven games.
The Colonials could not penetrate the Wildcats’ defense and collected just four points in the paint on the night.
Several players recruited by Lorber became Major League Baseball draft picks since he joined GW prior to the 2013 season.
The Colonials will need to be efficient from the floor while sweeping under the glass if they want to compete with a Villanova team that outshoots them.
Sophomore guard Terry Nolan Jr. turned in a career-high 24 points in the win to help the Colonials capture their second win of the season.
