PICK: I’m going to stay with George Washington. We should have a pretty good overall matchup here if GW plays well. The Colonials are coming off a solid win over a decent Loyola team in their last outing, and they’ve scored 67 or more points in three straight games. As for Richmond, they struggled against George Mason but had a combined 164 points in the two games prior. I like this matchup to be fairly close, with George Washington eking out the cover. Should be a fun one.
