Hollis Named Honorable Mention; Kromah on All-Rookie Team
March 7, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC -- George Washington's Damian Hollis and Lasan Kromah have been named to the 2009-10 Atlantic 10 men's basketball All-Conference Teams in voting conducted among the Conference's 14 head coaches. Hollis was named All-Conference Honorable Mention while Kromah was named to the All-Rookie Team for men's basketball, the league office announced Sunday. The honors snap a two-year drought for GW in A-10 postseason honors. Hollis and Kromah are the first Colonials to be named to postseason All-Conference teams since the 2006-07 season.
Hollis led the Colonials in scoring with 13.1 points per game, rebounding with 4.8 rpg and blocked shots with 24. The senior from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, also ranks second in the league in free throw shooting percentage at 83.6 percent (92-110).
Kromah averaged 11.8 points and shot 45.9 percent from the field while leading GW in three-pointers made with 47 and ranks second in the A-10 in steals with an average of 2.0 per game. The 6-5 freshman guard from Greenbelt, MD (Eleanor Roosevelt H.S.) posted six 20-plus scoring games in his first collegiate season.
George Washington (16-13, 6-10 A-10) is the No. 10 seed in the 2010 Atlantic 10 Conference Championship Tournament set to get underway Tuesday at four A-10 campuses. The Colonials will travel to Dayton, OH, to face the #7 seeded Flyers at UD Arena at 7:00 p.m. The winner of that contest will advance to Atlantic City to meet the No. 2 seed (Xavier) on Friday, Mar. 12 at Boardwalk Hall. The GW-Dayton first-round game will be broadcast live on 1500 AM and 820 AM and online at www.FederalNewsRadio.com.
