Recap: So that puts us at 9.

GW had another early lead only to watch it almost disappear in the end. Up by 14 in the half, Hobbs continued to let Holy Cross' Devin Brown shoot wide open three pointers. Most coaches would decide to guard Brown's 3-pt shot but not Karl Hobbs. In the end Brown finished 5-7 from 3pt range and almost stealing the game from the Colonials. Did Hobbs not know that Brown shot 5-7 3pt range against Sacred Heart in his last game?

On the bright side, we are 9-2 and sitting pretty. Today really solidified the emergence of Tony Taylor and the downfall of Travis King. While King had 3 assists and played decent defense, he is definitely no longer THE Point Guard. Taylor with some excepts had a great game. 10 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal is a great stat line while getting more playing time than any other Colonial. In fact he is averaging Carl Elliott-esque minutes for GW. We wager that Hobbs just really likes him.

In the end we are 9-2 and will be facing a dangerous Harvard squad after squeaking by against Holy Cross 70-68. The Harvard game could make or break our season. It was around this time last year when the season came crashing down. This game will be a test to see how good we really are prior to the start of A-10 play. Havard's Jeremy Lin may be one of the best players we face all season. Dime has done couple articles about him. One on their near upset of UConn.
