Here Comes Mr. Lin

Jeremy Lin Blog

Last year he shot 4-10 from the field with 2 steals, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 turnovers in 30 min. in the Smith Center. However, that was last year and this year he is a legitimate threat to drop 25+. After putting up 30 against UCONN and 25 against BC, he has become a proven scorer. At the same time he will turn the ball over and that will be the key once against for the Colonials. Hopefully Hobbs utilizes our quick guards and lanky forwards to double Lin. We must make him go left and make sure we fight through the screens. This may be one of the few games where FKH will give Hobbs the "green light" to NOT guard the three point line as Harvard isnt the greatest 3 point shooting team. They are shooting a measly 31% behind the arc.

We believe that GW will get their 10th win of the season in dramatic fashion. GW by 4 as Hollis seals it with free throws down the stretch.

We will provide updates via our new Twitter page.

We leave you with this.

FKH's All-Decade Team

First Team
G Carl Elliott- Winningest Colonial Ever. Record GW's only Triple-Double, 2nd in career assists and steals at GW.

G SirValiant Brown- holds GW single-season scoring record (99-00). Second in D-1 in scoring during 99-00 season.

F Rob Diggs- 32nd on GW's Scoring List and 2nd in career blocks. One of the greatest athletes to play in the Smith Center.

F Mike Hall- 4-year starter. One of GW's most unselfish players.

F Pops Mensah Bonsu- The Mayor of Foggy Bottom. Enough Said.

Honorable Mention: TJ Thompson, Maureece Rice, Chris Monroe, JR Pinnock, Omar Williams

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.
