George Washington Vs. UMass: Colonials Look To Hand Minutemen Second Straight Loss

The Colonials will look to spoil UMass' bid to finish high in the Atlantic 10 standings.

George Washington's 2011-12 season has been a disappointment, but the Colonials will still have chances to play spoiler as the Atlantic 10 season gears up for its second half. One such chance will come Saturday when they host a Massachusetts team that just fell out of a three-way tie for first place with a loss to Rhode Island earlier in the week. The game will tip off at 7 p.m.

The Colonials nearly took advantage of a chance to play spoiler last Wednesday, taking Xavier down to the wire at home. However, two Tu Holloway free throws late ended the Colonials' upset bid and led to a 59-58 loss.

The game will be televised on CSN+ and News Channel 8 locally.
