Stats: https://s3.amazonaws.com/gwsports.com/documents/2022/11/7/2022-23_Game_Notes_Part1.pdf

GW is led by 6’2” James Bishop (22.3 ppg - 1st in the A10), 6’4” Brendan Adams (16.2 ppg - 7th in the A10), and 6’8” Ricky Lindo Jr. (10.3 ppg & 6.9 reb). 6’5” Maximus Edwards (9.4 ppg) and 6’10” Hunter Dean (7.9 ppg) have both started for the Colonials. There isn’t much after them. 9 guys have averaged double figure minutes but production has been limited.

GW averages 75.5 points per game while giving up 72.3. The Colonials shoot 47.8% from the floor and 31.6% from 3. Opponents are shooting 44.5% from the field and 33.7% from 3. The Colonials shoot 74.8% from the free throw line. They have been out rebounded by opponents by .6 boards per game. They average 12.4 turnovers per contest.

The game is on CBS Sports Network.

My prediction: Welcome back Coach Chris Caputo! I will cheer for you upon your introduction. Captain Obvious reports that if you limit Bishop, Adams, and Lindo you win. We haven’t exactly excelled in the area of shutting opponents best players down but we do just enough to win at home. GMU 75 - GW 72.

Discuss.

SLU, without Collins, went on a 25-0 run at GW this afternoon. I'll give Caputo's team credit, they fought back from a 17 point deficit to make it a one possession game. But they are not good and only play 7 guys.

Last year when we were 11-7, we only won 3 more games the rest of the year. Let's hope the rest of this season is more productive and gets off to a good start against GW! Although GW is poor defensively, in conference games they have impressive numbers leading the A10 in Offensive Efficiency, 2 pt %, and FT %.

Need to play some tight D on Bishop and limit him to 20 points..... if he goes for 30 on us we will lose. His supporting cast is decent, Adams is a good player. This team is scrappy and will be up to play us, they always give us fits. Oduro needs to abuse Dean, go right at him.

Who will show up from Mason? Victor, Ronnie, Malik?

Goodguys 66
George Madison 62
 

Where's the party?

Preferred Walk-On
Until we learn to roll the teams we should be rolling, my prediction for teams we should be rolling is the same ..... we will let them hang around with their guards outplaying ours, and we will have to sweat out our lousy free throw shooting down the stretch in order to eke out a win.

Us - 63
colonials (until they have to change their name) - 61

Everyone with eyes has already said it, but key to the game is keeping their guards in check, something we struggle with. Luckily for us, they struggle to stop just about anyone at any position. Josh should eat against these bigs. This one could very well turn into a shootout.

Mason 74
Bishop 71

Yeah I mean Bishop will probably score 20 or 25 but if he has to take 15 or 20 shots that’s fine. He’s the key and just shoots at will, or at least he used to.

probably can make a drinking game out of how many times they mention caputo and the final four.

at the very least hopefully they don’t call either school George Madison.

Or James Washington. This mess DOES get old.

Is there a way to stream CBS Sports? Seems it doesn’t allow me access to that one.
Not sure what you use to watch tv but you can get a free trial to fubo or Hulu that can give you the cbs sports network channel. It’s sometimes a premium channel on regular cable subscriptions.

For any of y’all who have access to ask questions at the presser — if Ticket isn’t playing today I’d be interested to hear how he’s progressing with his injury and when we’d expect to have him back. Totally wouldn’t expect to get a firm answer but we haven’t heard pretty much anything at this point so I think it’s a fair question.

I thought in one of the Monday night KE conversations they said he’d have a cast on for another week and then had to start some rehab
