George Washington Revolutionaries

The Revolutionaries lost just two of their first eight games this year versus UIC and South Carolina. George Washington is a nice 8-2 since then with wins over Navy, Coppin State, Bowie State, Alcorn State, MD-Eastern Shore, VCU, Davidson and George Mason in that stretch.

In their last matchup versus UMass, George Washington fell back into the loss column. The Revolutionaries were doing okay with a 31-31 halftime score, but then hit a 50-36 deficit the rest of the way for an 81-67 result. Leading scorer Garrett Johnson put up 16 points with three rebounds in the defeat.

Richmond Spiders

Over on the Spiders’ side, they managed a .500 run over their first 10 games this year. Richmond has hit their stride with an eight-game win streak since then, toppling Charlotte, Buffalo, Lafayette, St. Bonaventure, Loyola Chicago, George Mason, Duquesne and Davidson along the way.

Back on Saturday versus Davidson, the Spiders had a close call. Richmond scored 34 points in the first half, 28 in the second and hit a 7-2 run in overtime for a 69-64 victory. Jordan King was the team’s leading contributor on 24 points, two rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes of work.


I’ll stick with the Spiders. This should be a pretty fun matchup regardless, though. Richmond barely escaped a scrappy Davidson team in their last outing, shooting 40 percent from the field with a 43-38 rebounding edge. The scoring hasn’t quite been there for the Spiders lately; they’ve been below 70 points in five of the last six games but they’re still getting it done on defense.

As for George Washington, they’re scoring well overall this year with 67 or more points in all 18 games. Richmond is going to have to slow down the pace here and keep the defense stout in order to cover, but I think they’ll get it done. The Revolutionaries will likely make things interesting however.
