Interesting game as GWU plays 3 starters 6'7" or taller including co-A-10 player of the week, a 6'8" left hander who shoots a lot of 3s'. GWU has won 2 games in a row including a home court upset of Temple. They are 4-4 with their only losses to very good teams including XAVIER, Florida State etc. They strike me as a somewhat better but very different type of team than Lehigh and they will be playing at home.

Patrick Steeves, former Harvard player, is a starter averaging 10 pts per game and Mitola's brother is on GWU but does not get many minutes.

GWU does not shoot 3s' very well but they do not shoot them. Issue for the Tigers may be on the boards. GWU will be the home court favorite in all likelihood.

Should be a good test for the Tigers. I think Much and perhaps, Brennan, will get a fair amount of time based on GWU's size and 3 pt shooting.

Steeves was an excellent 3pt shooter - 46%

Princeton owes him one for his season ending blocked shot at Lavietes.

Steeves has been awful from 3 for GW. He is crafty around the basket.
Guessing Watanabe will guard Myles; he may be too tall
for the match-up the other way, but is probably our best option.
Princeton is better coached and more experienced.
If we play 40 consistent minutes, we should get this one.

Temple let GW have the 3's, playing the percentages.

GW shot 9/16 56.3%

Difference in the game.

Early season mid-major ranking for Tigers as to degree of difficulty considering homecourt vs. road game, probably lines up as St. Joe's, GWU, Lehigh and finally Monmouth. So far, results have been disappointing especially the Lehigh home game but every game has its own unique flow/result.

The ultimate question is where Harvard, Yale and possibly Penn fit into the mix as a comparable. Time will tell.

GWU will be a very challenging match up -- Yuta Wantanabe is a match up problem for Tigers.

Surprising to me, GW down at 165 on Kenpom, PU at 147. Tougher schedule and worse luck for the Tigers. Let's hope the threes go in today and Princeton wins the turnover battle.

9-3 start with two Cannady and two Much buckets sounds pretty good.

1-3-1 gets a steal by Schweger, but he gives it back with his second TO.

Derosier hits a trey, much needed.

Once again, unless PU forces a turnover the opponent is scoring almost every time. Lots of two-point jumpers.

Down 7 with under five minutes left in the first half. MH time-out. Still not getting many stops.

The dreaded inevitable Princeton cold spell, while GW's Bolden starts lighting it up.

Two more missed layups...at least we got the charge from GW to get the ball back.

This team can't make lay ups. Gotta finish!

An OR and a Schweger trey eases the pain.

Stephens driving on the GW defensive ace for a layup is encouraging.
