WASHINGTON - Dates for all 29 regular-season games of George Washington men's basketball's 2012-13 schedule have been finalized with the release of the team's 16-game Atlantic 10 Conference slate.
GW's 13-game non-conference schedule was released in July and is highlighted by a home game against Kansas State on Dec. 8 and road games at power conference foes Notre Dame (Nov. 21), Rutgers (Dec. 11) and Georgia (Jan. 4).
Information regarding game times, local and regional television, Federal News Radio audio streaming and 1500 AM radio broadcasts, and GWsports.com All-Access video streaming for the entire 2012-13 campaign will be announced in the coming weeks.
