The Fordham Rams and George Washington Colonials meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Charles E. Smith Center.

DJ Williams is averaging 13.2 points and 4.8 rebounds while Terry Nolan Jr. is averaging 12 points and 1.8 assists.

Given the history between these clubs, laying the bucket with George Washington shouldn't be asking too much.
