George Washington Colonials Basketball Schedule

It's time for the start of another exciting college basketball season and no place in the country is more electric than the Smith Center, the Washington D.C. home of the George Washington Colonials. Last season the Colonials went 11-5 in the Atlantic 10 and 24-9 overall, and they are ready to make a big move up the conference standings this year. Head coach Mike Lonergan is a proven winner and he will have plenty of talent to work with during the 2014-2015 season including swingman Patricio Garino and guard Kethan Savage. Navigating through the challenging Atlantic 10 is never an easy task but the Colonials appear to have the talent and experience to make some serious noise this season. Be sure to get your tickets for all of the George Washington Colonials' biggest games from StubHub as soon as possible so you can get some of the best seats in the house.

In their quest to make a return to the NCAA Tournament this season the Colonials will have their work cut out for them as they take on many of the best teams in all of college hoops. The Colonials have home games at the Smith Center against the Bloomsburg Huskies, the Grambling Tigers, the Longwood Lancers, the UMBC Retrievers, the DePaul Blue Demons, and the VMI Keydets before conference play even begins. Once A-10 play gets underway the Colonials will host the St. Louis Billikens, the Richmond Spiders, the George Mason Patriots, the Duquesne Dukes, the Dayton Flyers, the VCU Rams, the Davidson Wildcats, the St. Bonaventure Bonnies, and the UMASS Minutemen. During their mission to leapfrog teams like Dayton, VCU, and St. Louis this season the Colonials will need every last bit of home court advantage they can get from all of their biggest fans at Smith Center.


George Washington Colonials Basketball History

The George Washington Colonials have a long and proud history in college hoops that dates all the way back to 1913. In more than 100 years of existence, Colonials basketball has built a strong and loyal following who show up by the thousands at Smith Center on game days and turn it into tone of the most exciting venues in the country. Last season George Washington finished third in the A-10, just behind St. Louis and VCU, and earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007. Unfortunately, the Colonials lost a hard fought first round game to the Memphis Tigers but they plan on being alive in March once again at the end of the 2014-2015 season and will be looking to make a deep run in the Tournament. This year's team appears to have a perfect mix of new blood and returning stars. Players like Kevin Larsen, Joe McDonald, Patricio Garino, and Kethan Savage should be able to provide some leadership as well as talent and experience that will help the Colonials stay at or near the top of the standings in a stacked Atlantic 10. This is gearing up to be another exciting year in Washington D.C. and you will want to be inside the Smith Center to see all of the action in person.


The Experience

There's nothing like being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush off the potato chips and get ready to see a game you won't soon forget. College basketball has plenty of great games on the schedule each and every season, from plenty of top-tier regular season battles to Tournament clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. These are some of the best amateur athletes in the entire world, though that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate. Will you be there when your favorite player pulls up for a game-winning three that will have everyone jumping out of their seat in unison? There is nothing quite like being there with thousands of your fellow fans as the Colonials look to pile up the wins and give their fans another memorable season, though that's not something that you're going to figure out sitting at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like.


George Washington Colonials Basketball Conference

The George Washington Colonials are members of the Atlantic 10 which has long been one of the truly great conferences in the country. The A-10 had often been underrated by those not very familiar with college basketball but with its addition of some new great teams in recent years it has become a conference that is impossible to overlook. There are fourteen universities who participate in Atlantic 10 basketball: St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, George Washington, Saint Joseph's, Massachusetts, La Salle, Dayton, Richmond, Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, George Mason, Davidson, and Fordham. There are several classic rivalries within the conference including the cross-town rivalry between La Salle and Saint Joe's who are both former Big 5 members, the in-state rivalry between VCU and Richmond, and the "Battle of the Rams" between Rhode Island and Fordham. With the recent additions of teams like Davidson, Virginia Commonwealth, and Saint Louis look for new rivalries to develop within the conference as these teams continually to face off against one another several times a year during A-10 play. If you are looking to see some top notch college basketball action, the Atlantic 10 is the place to be. As the conference continues to grow and gain more and more national attention, every team in the conference will improve and not only make a mark on the conference but the national college hoops landscape.


Trivia

The George Washington Colonials have participated in the NCAA Tournament 11 times and made it all the way to the Sweet Sixteen in 1993. Several former Colonials have gone on to play in the NBA but arguably the most notable alum is Red Auerbach who was inducted into the Hall of Fame following his legendary career as the coach of the Boston Celtics who he guided to nine championships in ten years.
