The Colonials (11-16, 5-11) end the regular season as the fifth seed in the Atlantic 10 West Division. Fordham (2-25, 3-13), fifth seed in the East, lost its last 14 games.

Monroe, playing in his final home game, moved within 23 points of becoming George Washington's all-time leading scorer. He scored in double digits in all 27 games this season.
Michael Haynes and Glenn Batemon each had 14 points for Fordham. Mushon Ya'akosi scored a career-high 13 points in 14 minutes for the Rams but played just two minutes in the second half because of foul trouble. He scored all of his points in the first half.
