Atlantic 10 Tournament Schedule: George Washington Earns No. 5 Seed, Will Play St. Joseph's Tuesday

We already talked a little bit about the Atlantic-10 Tournament starting today, but we're a D.C. site so I figured we could pay a little bit more attention to the local boys of George Washington. They take on St. Joseph's tonight at the Smith Center, and are aiming to advance to the next round in Atlantic City.

For more information on the first round game, we turn to USA 9.

Fifth-seeded George Washington will tangle with 12th-seeded Saint Joseph's in the first round as well. This season has been a tough one to endure for Saint Joseph's, which owns a 29-26 record in this event and has won the title twice, most recently in 1997. Generating offense has proven to be problematic for the Hawks, who place 13th out of 14 A-10 teams in regard to scoring offense (63.5 ppg). They are also 13th in scoring margin, as they are being outgunned by 6.1 ppg overall. As for George Washington, it also has two A-10 tourney titles to its credit and last hoisted the crown in 2007. The Colonials, who closed out their regular season with back-to-back wins, rank in the middle of the A-10 pack in most important statistical categories. Tony Taylor is the man to watch for GW, as he is posting 14.8 ppg, good for 11th place among A-10 players.
