GW Men's Hoops to Prep for 2013-14 With Bowie State Exhibition
Annual Non-Conference Schedule Countdown Opens With Primer Versus Bulldogs
June 26, 2013
The 2013-14 George Washington men's basketball team will hit the Charles E. Smith Center's newly designed hardwood for the first time on Saturday, Nov. 2 with an exhibition contest against the Bowie State Bulldogs.
It marks the third time in the last four seasons that GW will be tested by the local NCAA Division II program in an exhibition at the Smith Center. The Colonials posted an 82-64 victory in November 2010 and a 92-65 triumph over the then No. 8 nationally ranked Bulldogs before Coach Mike Lonergan's debut 2011-12 season.
GW has gone 9-0 in exhibition games since 2004 when the NCAA required Division I programs to face college teams, including last season's 72-46 victory over district Division III foe Catholic. Isaiah Armwood, one of five starters set to return for the Colonials in 2013-14, grabbed 16 rebounds against the Cardinals in his first-ever appearance for the Buff and Blue.
Bowie State enters its fifth season under the direction of Darrell Brooks, a former GW assistant coach and 1979 BSU alumnus who has led the Bulldogs to a 77-36 mark during his tenure. BSU is coming off a 16-14 season in 2012-13 during which it captured the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) title en route to its second NCAA D-II Tournament appearance in the past three seasons.
