GW Men's Hoops to Tip Off 100th Season on Nov. 8 Versus Radford
Colonials to Face Highlanders for First Time to Open Banner 100th Season
June 27, 2013
The 100th season of George Washington men's basketball will tip off on Friday, Nov. 8 against the Radford Highlanders at the Charles E. Smith Center.
It will mark the first-ever meeting between the two programs and is the first of the Colonials' 15 regular-season home games on the new Smith Center hardwood during the 2013-14 season. Plans are also being made for the third annual Home Opener Tailgate, a 22nd Street block party to celebrate the official start of basketball season.
The contest will also mark the first regular-season game for newcomers Maurice Creek, Nick Griffin, Miguel Cartagena and Skyler White, who will team with five returning starters and eight returning letterwinners during this milestone 2013-14 campaign.
Led by Second Team All-Big South selection Javonte Green, Radford is slated to return 13 of 14 players, four starters and its top five scorers from last season's 13-19 team. The Highlanders are coached by former VCU assistant Mike Jones and finished 26th nationally in steals in 2012-13 with 8.6 per game. Jones, a 1990 graduate of Howard who played against GW during a four-year career with the Bison, enters his third season at the helm after assistant coaching stints at his alma mater, Furman, Richmond, West Virginia, Georgia and VCU.
