GW Men's Basketball won!!!!

Its official. The 11 game losing love-fest is over. Now what happens. The Hatchet reported  
The streak has been snapped. GW's men's basketball team no longer finds itself mired in an 11-game skid after picking up an 87-62 win over Fordham Saturday afternoon at Smith Center. The victory, the Colonials' (7-13, 1-7 Atlantic 10) first since Dec. 23, 2008, took shape early. Powered by eventual 19-point, six-rebound and 17-point, seven-rebound performances from junior Damian Hollis and senior Rob Diggs, respectively, GW was able to open a double-digit advantage within the game's first eight minutes. As play continued, the lead continued to balloon, culminating in a 33-point lead for the Colonials at halftime.
The Colonials will match-up against La Salle on Wednesday at the Smith Center. to defend their tiny winning streak. Is it possible GW fans could ask for two wins in a row? As for now, the Colonials just need to keep a positive attitude and remember to spread the love around. 10 Colonials scored in the win and that kept fresh legs on the court at all time.
