The Atlantic 10 adjusted dates for the men’s and women’s basketball championships due to COVID-19 schedule disruptions.
Traditionally a fall sport, the squads were forced to merge the cross country and outdoor track and field seasons during the spring semester.
After a 35-day COVID-19 pause that caused them to miss eight straight games, the Colonials toppled the Rams 78–70.
The contest marks the sixth time this season the Colonials have had a game canceled or postponed.
In its past three games, GW held every opponent under 50 points and nabbed the victories by double-digit margins.
After a five-week hiatus from competition, men’s basketball will return to the court Sunday to take on Rhode Island.
Khan said the Colonials are looking to suit up four times this season in back-to-back rumbles with Navy one weekend and Virginia another weekend.
Both teams opened the season at the three-day Cavalier Invitational against Virginia and Pittsburgh – their first of just three scheduled regular season meets.
Three consecutives postponements and cancellations forced the Colonials to stay hunkered down in Foggy Bottom instead of competing as planned.
GW’s defense was stifling all afternoon, holding St. Bonaventure to just 29.8 percent shooting.
