Fordham Sweeps George Washington

It is something about Fordham that doesn’t jive well with George Washington. For the second time this season, the Rams found a way to beat the Colonials, 63-52. George Washington never got into a rhythm on Senior Night. GW shot 36% (18-50) from the field.

“It was a tough night for us. We couldn’t get the ball in the hole,” said GW head coach Jamion Christian.

The Colonials were led by Armel Potter’s 16 point-5-rebound-5 assist performance. Fordham’s Joel Soriano dominated the paint with 14 points and 15 rebounds. Guard Josh Colon led the Rams in scoring with 17.

George Washington head coach Jamion Christian started seniors Arnaldo Toro, Luke Sasser, and Adam Mitola. Toro has been a starter at points this season but Sasser and Mitola had appeared in a combined seven games this season. Mitola would take full advantage of the moment hitting a three-pointer on his first shot attempt.

But for the most part, the first half was a muddled one for the Colonials. Nine George Washington turnovers had a lot to do with Fordham only being down two points at halftime despite shooting 29.6%.

George Washington started the second half making just two out of its first eight shots en route to shooting xx% in the second half.

An 11-2 run gave George Washington their biggest lead in the second half at 48-43. Armel Potter would score six of the 11 points during the run.

Fordham immediately responded with a 9-0 run of their own. The run was made up of 3 three-pointers. Two by Josh Colon and one by Antwon Portley.
