GW Men's Hoops Heads to Hofstra, Back to NYC on Dec. 28
Colonials to Make Second of Four Trips to NYC Metro Area to Visit Pride
July 6, 2013
GW Alumni in the New York City metro area will get their second chance to cheer on the George Washington men's basketball team when the Colonials visit the Hofstra Pride on Saturday, Dec. 28.
The weekend trip to the Mack Sports Complex in Hempstead, N.Y., is the second of four trips to the NYC metro area for the Colonials, who travel to Manhattan on Saturday, Nov. 16, will visit Fordham in the Bronx on a date still to be determined, and play in the 2014 Atlantic 10 Championship at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on March 13-16.
The Colonials and Pride will meet for the second time in as many seasons after GW rolled to an 80-56 triumph at the Smith Center last November, the first meeting between the programs since 1982. GW shot a scorching 62 percent and assisted 26-of-34 field goals, and Isaiah Armwood recorded his first double-double for the Buff and Blue with 12 points and 10 rebounds to go along with five blocks.
Former Niagara head coach Joe Mihalich takes over a Hofstra program that went 7-25 overall and 4-14 in the Colonial Athletic Association in 2012-13. Despite losing its top five scorers from last season, the Pride are slated to return three starters and will supplement its roster with seven newcomers, including transfers from Niagara, Monmouth and Illinois State.
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 Mike Lonergan.
