The George Washington Colonials and the Princeton Tigers will meet up on the college basketball court Saturday. 

George Washington stumbles into this one at just 1-6 on the season. The Colonials’ lone win this year came against Manhattan, and they’ve otherwise fallen to Stony Brook, Siena, Virginia, Michigan, South Carolina and Vermont. 

In the Catamounts game, Arnaldo Toro managed a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Justin Mazzulla was the only other Colonial in double-figures there with 10 points and six rebounds. 

Over on the Princeton side, they’re 3-2 this year. The Tigers’ losses have come courtesy of Lehigh and FDU, and they’ve taken out DeSales, Monmouth and Maine for their victories this season. 

In the Black Bears game, Princeton’s Devin Cannady led the charge on 28 points and five rebounds. Richmond Aririguzoh was the only other Tiger in double-figures with 10 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double. 

George Washington is 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight following an ATS loss and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the Ivy League. The Colonials are 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 road games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and 0-8 ATS in their last eight versus the Atlantic 10. Princeton is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 following an ATS win and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games. 

After a couple of decent efforts to start the season, George Washington has been getting drilled in their recent losses—69-53 versus Vermont and 90-55 versus South Carolina for example. 

Princeton’s not quite the scoring juggernaut (relatively speaking) that some of those teams are however, so it’s not wild to think GW can cover here.
