GW Men's Hoops Gets Home Rematch Versus Rutgers on Dec. 4
Colonials Seek to Avenge Three-Point Road Loss to Scarlet Knights in 2012-13
July 1, 2013
George Washington men's basketball will have another shot at taking down former Atlantic 10 rival Rutgers when the Colonials host the Scarlet Knights at the Charles E. Smith Center on Wednesday, Dec. 4.
In a meeting at the RAC last December, GW erased a 15-point first-half deficit to take a 53-49 lead with less than 10 minutes to play. However, the Scarlet Knights managed to regain an advantage and the Colonials, who closed within a point three times in the final three minutes, missed a game-tying three at the buzzer en route to a 68-65 loss. GW's frontcourt of Isaiah Armwood (18p/7r) and Kevin Larsen (9p/11r) found success against Rutgers, combining for 27 points on 12-of-19 shooting and 18 rebounds.
The loss dropped GW to 18-23 all-time against its former A-10 counterpart, but the Colonials own a 14-5 series record inside Smith Center.
Rutgers, which began its one-year tenure in the new American Athletic Conference on Monday ahead of its planned move to the Big Ten in 2014-15, is in its first season under head coach Eddie Jordan. Jordan has extensive ties to the DC metro area as he shares the same scholastic alma mater as GW head coach Mike Lonergan in Archbishop Carrol, and also served as head coach of the NBA's Washington Wizards from 2004-08.
Jordan inherits a Scarlet Knights team that went 15-16 overall and 5-13 in the Big East last season. RU is expected to return three starters and three of its top four scorers from 2012-13 - Myles Mack, Wally Judge and Jerome Seagears.
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 Head Coach Mike Lonergan.
