George Washington scored a big win by beating St. Joe's earlier this week, but it may have been too little too late. The Colonials find themselves tied for fourth in the conference and UMass holds the tiebreaker over them.
That makes closing out the season with a win doubly important for George Washington. A win combined with a UMass loss Sunday against Saint Louis would mean that the Colonials have the first round bye in the A-10 Tournament. A loss means that they are destined to play an extra game.
A loss would also mean that they have another blemish on their NCAA Tournament resume, something that is never good when your place in the field is slightly precarious. They should be in, but losing to Fordham won't make any Colonial fan happy about their situation.
Can George Washington close this one out on a high note? We will find out here at 4:30 p.m. Eastern.
