GW Men's Hoops to Take on Manhattan in NYC on Nov. 16
Colonials Make First of Four Trips to NYC to Face Jaspers
June 29, 2013
In its first of at least four games in the New York City metro area, George Washington men's basketball will visit Manhattan on Saturday, Nov. 16 for its first road game of the 2013-14 season.
The Colonials will call upon the more than 15,000 alumni in NYC to pack the Jaspers' Draddy Gymnasium similar to the impressive alumni showing in Brooklyn for the 2013 Atlantic 10 Championship when more than 700 raucous GW fans invaded the Barclays Center.
GW took a 3-2 series advantage with a 67-55 victory over Manhattan in last year's BB&T Classic at the Verizon Center.
In one of his most impressive performances of the season, Isaiah Armwood recorded 23 points, nine rebounds and six blocks to pace the Colonials and earn top performer honors on ESPN.com.
Manhattan, which went 7-4 in the 2,345-seat Draddy Gym last season, could potentially return its top seven scorers from its 2012-13 team that lost to Iona, 60-67, in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title game. Third-year head coach Steve Masiello's team finished 32nd nationally in scoring defense (59.9 ppg allowed) last season and is set to return Second Team All-MAAC forward Rhamel Brown and injured leading scorer George Beamon.
Be sure to check back to GWsports.com each day until the release of season tickets on July 8 as a new men's basketball non-conference event is announced and broken down by Coach Lonergan.
