The George Washington Colonials (7-11, 2-2 A-10) host the Charlotte 49ers (10-7, 2-2) Saturday night at the Charles E. Smith Center, looking to climb above .500 in Atlantic 10 conference play.

George Washington is coming off an 83-65 win over Richmond on Wednesday night. The Colonials shot 58.2 percent in the game, and are led by guard Tony Taylor (13.7 ppg, 4.2 apg) and shot-blocking forward Jabari Edwards (2.0 bpg).

Charlotte has not won at the Smith Center since joining the Atlantic 10 in 2005. The 49ers have lost two straight games, but have a balanced scoring attack in players Javarris Barnett, Chris Braswell and DeMario Mayfield, who have alternated dropping over 20 points in the 49ers last three games.
