BROOKLYN, N.Y. - GW men's basketball senior Isaiah Armwood and sophomore Patricio Garino collected preseason Atlantic 10 All-Conference honors on Tuesday at the league's annual Media Day at Barclays Center.
Armwood was named preseason Second Team All-Atlantic 10 and to the A-10 All-Defensive Team, while Garino joined his teammate on the A-10 All-Defensive Team in voting conducted by the league's head coaches and select media.
Armwood, who enters his final season of eligibility in 2013-14, is the conference's leading returning rebounder (8.8 rpg) and second-leading shot blocker (2.3 bpg) after ranking second in both categories in 2012-13. He also finished among the A-10's leaders in scoring (11.9 ppg, 26th), field goal percentage (50.6%, 14th), offensive rebounds (2.5, 9th) and defensive rebounds (6.2, 2nd) in his debut season with the Colonials.
Garino led the team and ranked fourth in the Atlantic 10 with a GW freshman record 68 steals (2.3 spg) in 2012-13. His 68 thefts bested the previous rookie mark set by Carl Elliott in 2003-04. The 6-foot-6 combo guard-forward from Mar del Plata, Argentina was GW's third-leading scorer last season at 8.8 points per game, and was second on the team in assists (62) and three-pointers (16), fourth in blocks (13) and fifth in rebounding (101).
GW returns all five starters, four of its top five scorers, and better than two-thirds of its points (68%), rebounds (75%), blocks (80%), steals (73%) and assists (71%) from last year's 13-17 team.
GW will play 16 home games at the Charles E. Smith Center and at least 14 games against teams that competed in the postseason in 2012-13 as part of its 100th season of intercollegiate competition in 2013-14.
The 30-game regular season also features three games in Orange County, Calif., as part of the ultra-competitive Wooden Legacy, three trips to the New York City metro area to face Manhattan, Hofstra and Fordham, home rematches against Boston University, Georgia and Rutgers, and eight nationally televised A-10 contests with additional broadcast coverage to be announced in the coming weeks. The Colonials will return to New York City for a fourth time to compete in the A-10 Championship March 12-16 at Barclays Center.
