The D1scourse early-season hoops tour continues its frenetic pace tonight.
Friday, it was Navy.
Saturday, it was Georgetown (against American).
Sunday, it was the BB&T Classic.
Tuesday, it was George Mason.
And tonight, it’s George Washington, for what is really a sneaky good game featuring the 6-1 Colonials and Providence (6-3).
GW is deep, and is already 60 percent of the way to its victory total from last year. Providence, which lost a ton from last year, has lost to Alabama, Boston College and Rhode Island (none a humilating setback) and beaten a tough Northeastern outfit on the road.
This also is a continuation of what could be the ill-fated Project 75, an attempt to see at least 75 Division I teams in person before season’s end.
How’s it going so far? Well, check out the list:
2. Charleston Southern
9. George Washington
11. George Mason
Covering an early-season event (hello, Maui Invitational) or the NCAA tournament would help this figure tremendously. But for now, it’s a start.
And on paper, this has the look of a good one.
GEORGE WASHINGTON (6-1)
