Team preview: George Washington
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Looking for a team that can loosen Xavier and Dayton's stranglehold on the A-10 West? George Washington looks like that team.
Picked to finish near the bottom of the A-10 West standings last winter, coach Karl Hobbs' freshman and sophomore-laden squad finished one game out of first place (behind Dayton), won 18 games and went to the NIT, the school's first postseason berth since 1999.
