GW Men's Hoops Earns Vote in AP Top 25 National Ranking
Colonials Receive Vote in AP Poll for First Time Since 2007
Nov. 18, 2013
WASHINGTON - Off to a 3-0 start for the first time in four years, GW men's basketball earned a vote in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll released on Monday.
GW checked in at No. 25 on one voter's ballot, marking the first time the program received votes in the national rankings since concluding the 2006-07 season with three votes in the final AP poll. The Colonials closed the 2006-07 season by capturing their second Atlantic 10 Championship title in three years to earn a third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.
That was also the last time both the GW men's and women's programs appeared together in the same poll, with the Colonials' women's team finishing the 2006-07 season at No. 14 after reaching the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. GW women's basketball received 16 votes in this week's AP Top 25 after knocking off then-No. 10/11 California, 75-72, on Friday.
GW, which improved to 3-0 with an 80-74 comeback victory at Manhattan on Saturday, returns to the Charles E. Smith Center on Tuesday night to host Delaware State at 7 p.m. It will be Dollar Dog Night at the Smith Center, with $1 hot dogs throughout the contest.
