Well I gave the Colonials a chance in the first part of this back to back and they blew it, so I think I’m already done with George Washington as this just is not a good basketball team. Duquesne has a tough task, beating the same team in as many days, but they’re the better team here as well as the more consistent team ,so I’ll lay the points with the Dukes in this spot.
