The Colonials return home Friday to face Rhode Island after a two-game road stint in which they split contests at Massachusetts and Dayton.
The Colonials will also host Duquesne, George Mason, Richmond and St. Bonaventure, the league announced Monday.
As the No. 3 seed in the tournament, GW will play their opening round game Friday at 9 p.m. against either No. 6 seeded UMass or No. 11 Rhode Island, who battle Thursday.
THis post was written by Hatchet staff writer Josh Solomon. Who: GW (14-7, 5-3) vs. Rhode Island (6-15, 1-7) Where: Smith Center When: Saturday, Feb. 1 at 2 p.m. The Rams have lost 43 straight road games. That’s good for the second-longest losing streak in the nation, behind 51 in-a-row for Weber State. Coming into […]
GW (13-3, 1-1) used one of its best first-half efforts and the energy of the home-court crowd to take down Rhode Island, 69-56.
Playing at home, where GW has not lost all season, this should be the game where the Colonials gets their first A-10 win.
The Colonials fell victim to a Rams team that came out of the gate playing a high intensity game, which Ault says caught her team off guard. GW came out flat on the pin. Within the first seven points of the match, URI had amounted 3.5 blocks against a GW (14-12, 9-3 A-10) team that failed to adjust.
There GW was again. Locked in another tie. It was GW’s game to reach double-overtime in a month, and another tie wouldn’t do much to help the Colonials in the A-10 standings.
The Colonials left the Smith Center floor as the more dominant team, controlling the entire final set of the five-set thriller. The win extended GW’s winning streak to three games, their first and longest win streak of the season, with two of the wins decided in a final set.
With a solid defensive effort between the posts, senior goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick took home A-10 Conference Player of the Week honors, and after her game-winning goal in the 89th minute, freshman Kate Elson was awarded Co-Rookie of the Week honors.
