Bassett Breaks GW Home Run Record
April 10, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - Senior Mike Bassett (Paramus, NJ/Paramus) broke George Washington's individual home run record on Tuesday with a two-run homer to right field, his eighth this season. The right field cleanup hitter now has recorded 51 homers in his career, surpassing Joe Beichert's mark set at 50 from 1996-1999.
This season Bassett has also set new GW records for most career total bases and RBIs. He has notched 66 total bases this season, moving up from fifth place to set the new mark at 433. In doing so, he managed to break Mike Welch's 10-year record set from 1989-1992 at 417. Basset also holds the RBI record with 212, after collecting 35 this season to surpass ex-teammate Dan Rouhier (1998-2001) at 194.
In 29 games, Bassett has collected 35 hits in 107-at-bats (.327) with 25 runs. He currently ranks third on GW's most career doubles list, at 47, moving up from ninth after hitting seven so far this season. He solely leads the Colonials in at-bats (107), total bases (66), RBIs (35), and home runs (8) this season.
Bassett received Atlantic 10 Player of the Week honors on March 11. He also was named to the Clash of the Conferences All-Tournament Team on March 3.
Bassett and the Colonials will play Norfolk State at Barcroft Park today, Wednesday, April 10, at 3:00 p.m.
