What to Know

The George Washington Colonials have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. George Washington and the George Mason Patriots will face off in an Atlantic 10 battle at 2: 30 p.m. ET Sunday at EagleBank Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

The Colonials received a tough blow last Tuesday as they fell 84-71 to the Richmond Spiders. Despite the loss, George Washington had strong showings from guard Brayon Freeman, who had 19 points and five assists along with five rebounds, and guard Joe Bamisile, who had 29 points in addition to seven boards.

Meanwhile, GMU was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Wednesday as they fell 72-66 to the VCU Rams. George Mason’s defeat came about despite a quality game from guard D’Shawn Schwartz, who had 22 points.

George Washington is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with George Washington, who are 13-12-1 against the spread.

The Colonials got away with a 77-76 win in the teams’ previous meeting in January. The rematch might be a little tougher for them since the team won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
