GW Men's Hoops Will Host Delaware State on Nov. 19
Colonials Host Hornets for Second Time in Three Seasons
June 30, 2013
George Washington men's basketball will shoot for its second victory over Delaware State in the last three seasons when the Colonials host the Hornets at the Charles E. Smith Center on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
GW rolled to a 77-59 New Years Eve victory in its first-ever meeting against DSU at the Smith Center on Dec. 31, 2011. Four Colonials hit double-figures in scoring and GW used an 18-0 edge in fast-break points to sprint by Delaware State in the non-conference home finale of the 2011-12 campaign.
Delaware State will enter its 14th season under head coach Greg Jackson following a 15-18 mark and trip to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference semifinals last season. The Hornets are expected to return four starters, led by leading scorer (12.8 ppg) and Second Team All-MEAC selection Tahj Tate. Kendall Gray, a 6-foot-10 center who ranked 20th in the nation with 2.6 blocks per game in 2012-13, also returns to a Hornets frontcourt that finished 12th nationally in blocks (5.6 bpg) last season.
