Keep An Eye On:

Mental Toughness: is the only thing that is going to get the Revolutionaries out of funk they've been in over the last seven games, all losses. January 15th, George Washington sat at 14-3 after a 75-62 win over their rivals George Mason. The Revolutionaries to that point had only surrendered 80 or more points six times, with two of those six games, going into multiple overtimes. GW finished 3-3 in those games. After defeating George Mason, GW have lost seven straight games and have allowed 80 or more points in EVERY SINGLE GAME, which includes a 23 point beatdown in a rematch at George Mason on Tuesday.


It's not rocket science, GW has to get tougher mentally and get back to playing for one another defensively, flying around and getting stops like they were doing during their 14-3 start. Take pride in that end of the floor for 40 minutes or however long it will take. It's the only way they're going to dig themselves out of this massive hole they've dug for themselves. Today's battle against third place Richmond is exactly the type of game to turn things around and get back on the right track as the A-10 Championship Tournament fast approaches.



Jordan King: has been one of the best players in the A-10 all season. King is an efficient three level scorer, productive rebounder, adequate playmaker and sound defender. The 6'0 guard is a one man wrecking crew and one who requires special attention at all times. King comes in averaging a team high 18.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals on 47 percent shooting from the field, 42 percent from deep and 80 percent from the charity stripe. He's the head of the snake that GW has to cut off if they want to get a much needed win at home against one of the top teams in the conference.
