What to Know
The George Washington Colonials are 2-11 against the Richmond Spiders since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Wednesday. George Washington and Richmond will face off in an Atlantic 10 battle at 7 p.m. ET at Charles E. Smith Center. The Spiders should still be riding high after a victory, while George Washington will be looking to get back in the win column.
A win for George Washington just wasn't in the stars this past Saturday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. Their painful 93-67 loss to the Duquesne Dukes might stick with them for a while. It was supposed to be a close game, and George Washington was supposed to come out on top, but neither of those things ended up happening. Guard James Bishop wasn't much of a difference maker for the Colonials; Bishop finished with ten points on 3-for-12 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 32 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, the Spiders beat the Fordham Rams 68-58 on Sunday. Forward Matt Grace was the offensive standout of the matchup for Richmond, picking up 21 points in addition to five rebounds.
George Washington is now 11-12 while Richmond sits at 12-12. Richmond is 5-6 after wins this season, and George Washington is 6-5 after losses.
